Croatian Football Federation has selected four options in all three EURO 2024 regions back in July 2022, on the first available day, while in September 2023 the HNS delegation visited all sites. Following the EURO 2024 group stage draw - that put Croatia in the Northern region - Croatia coach Ivica Olić, team manager Iva Olivari and head of communications Tomislav Pacak visited the best options again and agreed with HNS president Marijan Kustić and head coach Zlatko Dalić that Neuruppin is the best option for Croatia.

"Our basic goal is to secure the best possible conditions for our national team. Neuruppin was one of the most wanted basecamps in UEFA catalogue and I'm happy that our logistics did an excellent job to overcome other teams. We'll have an idyllic environment and great conditions to work", said HNS president Kustić.

Neuruppin is situated 75 kilometers from the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, where Croatia opens the EURO 2024 against Spain while Hamburg (225 km) and Leipzig (227 km) can be easily reached by bus, so the Vatreni will not need to fly in the group stage. Furthermore, the Mark Brandenburg resort has an excellent fitness center and other facilities that allow privacy for the team.

"I have full confidence in HNS logistics, that did a perfect job in previous tournaments, from Russia to Doha. I have very positive impressions on this camp because it offers just what we seek: excellent sporting conditions, fitness and training centre, and peaceful and comfortable environment. Moreover, the location is great and we will not lose too much time on travel. Therefore, Neuruppin is cat's whiskers", said Croatia head coach Dalić.
