Isn't it too early for such album, given that we don't know even the qualifying groups?
Also:

Here it says that Topps have the rights for the Nations League finals as well. Would that mean that we'll be getting such albums?

Interesting thing for collectors:

Exclusive products will be released as of this summer as the countdown to UEFA EURO 2024 begins. Mourinho, who has had a glittering career in club football, will help to select the players from various national teams, who will be included in the Topps sticker album.

and second part:

As well as being an Official partner of the UEFA Champions League and all other UEFA club competitions, Topps and UEFA have now signed a contract for UEFA EURO 2024, UEFA EURO 2028 and other UEFA national team competitions including the UEFA Nations League finals and UEFA Women’s EURO 2025. The partnership makes Topps the new and official licensed partner from 2022 to 2028, providing exclusive stickers, trading cards and collectibles connected to UEFA EURO 2024 in Germany, as well as upcoming events.

It's just a propaganda video, Topps way to show UEFA national teams licensing now belongs to them, leaving Panini with zero UEFA stuff... Probably the cover won't be anything like that and maybe even Mourinho won't choose the likely squads by then.

Can't possibly see how Mourinho could select every country's squad. He would need to put his personal views to one side for one thing, which wouldn't be possible for him.

What about Panini?
For me, they will try to propose an album.

I think they could propose a special edition for the Copa America album in Europe. Only Copa America in South America, and for Europe a mix between the Copa America and some European teams. Both competitions are in the same time, so we could imagine an album "Best selections in the world" or some bullshit like that... A kind of alternative album "FIFA 365" with nations...

I agree on that idea, Panini has to find something to counter Topps... it's not only the Euro album, it's also the Road To, which means two albums less and they definitely need to fill that void.

Panini definitely needs to return to some humble roots, licensed or not.

I hope topps bring back Stadium stickers for this album. Germany has such an amazing stadiums.
It was one (among many) of the flaws in the last two Euro albums... Surely Topps will take into account everything Panini shouldn't have missed, Euro 2024 album needs to have major impact to sway even the hardcore Panini fans.

Ofcourse Panini will relase album. Iz will be something probably called Europe stars or something random called like that.

As it stands Topps has every UEFA competition and Panini has FIFA. It will be interesting in the future to see if Panini will regain CL license or focus maybe on south american market giving them Copa Libertadores album.

I for one, am very happy that Topps is making this collection. Panini has done such a bad job with the last 3-4 albums about Euro, WC. The last good album was Euro 2008 IMO.

I actually love Topps Champions League album from this year.

I believe they will make one hell of an album with Euro 2024.

I just hope that the Topps album have some color. All the collections that I have from Topps are very dark. These Euro collections need color and light

I believe too, imo this last season they improved a lot on basic things like teams split by groups and even the shield stickers were quite nice to attach on the album.

From Panini, I also liked the 2012 edition, though at the time I criticized them a lot because of huge amount of doubles (let's not forget some teams would come out too much) and shinies being rarer (first time this happened since France 98)... but the set had a lot of diversity, even now I find the slogan sections quite cool.

I wonder if Panini is waiting on the resolution of the UEFA vs Superliga trial that is going on at the moment to judge whether UEFA has monopoly over European football. If UEFA looses then new licenses are up for grabs and if Panini get then they will hit the jackpot as the competition will have the best teams in Europe basically to replace Champions League but better in the words of the founders with tons of more money for everyone. Just me speculating, no official rumors from Panini.

Superleague is already tainted by their elitist entry, hardcore fans were completely against it (though everyone agrees UEFA should not have the monopoly)... so even if the trial rules in favour of superleague, the only reason for Panini to go for it would be solely money for speculators, zero passion there.

And we know how much Panini loves $$$.
