The UEFA Euro 2024 draw happened on December 2 in Hamburg, Germany. However, this draw was interrupted by something unusual, which left smirks and grins on many people’s faces; some were quite surprised too. An awful noise prank disrupted the Euro 2024 group-stage draw in Hamburg.
Several times in the later rounds, loud moaning noises could be heard in the background. Also, the draw for the European Championship in Germany for next summer was taking place at the Elbphilharmonie concert venue. According to various reports, the culprit is still not verified and is unknown.

Draw presenter and UEFA deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti stated, “There was some noise here… that has now stopped,” following the conclusion of Group A, which comprised the hosts Germany, Scotland, Hungary, and Switzerland.
The BBC live coverage of Wolves vs. Liverpool in January was interrupted by similar sounds, which were later identified as the result of a prank involving a cell phone near the studio. It remains to be seen what happens next with this situation and whether the UEFA will look into this matter more intensively. Such kinds of pranks are not tolerated on international television, and UEFA may take action as per various reports.
Daniel Jarvis, an internet prankster claims to play the audio at the Euro 24 draw
Unidentified moaning sounds jostled for attention during the reading of the team names at the UEFA Euro 2024 men’s soccer draw ceremony on December 2. The disruption, which sounded like se*ual sounds, could be heard clearly for a few minutes during the event that was streamed live from a Hamburg concert hall.
The stunt was reportedly believed to be by internet prankster and frequent pitch invader Daniel Jarvis. “Listen that was us, that was us,” he said in a video posted on X. “We got it in there, we put the phone in there, we rung it, se* noise at the Euro 2024 draw. Love you guys”.

Similar sounds interrupted the BBC’s live broadcast of Wolves vs. Liverpool’s FA Cup match in January, which Gary Lineker was hosting. When asked if he had heard anything strange in the hallway during the draw, England manager Gareth Southgate replied, “I did. I’m assuming it was some sort of a prank, but it was hard to really make out what it was”.
It remains to be seen whether it was truly Daniel who was behind these two stunts, with the Euro 24 draw being the most recent. The UEFA and PA might both take strict action if Daniel is proven guilty of his immature behavior and stunts.
