More than 200 countries glued to the television screens. UEFA EURO 2020, which will take place across Europe for the very first time, will be viewed by almost the entire world. Thanks to UEFA’s official broadcasting partners, it’ll be one of the most-watched tournaments of all time.
In Italy, SKY and Raisport will broadcast the highly anticipated summer event which, 60 years on from the first edition of the tournament, will take place from 12 June to 12 July. It’s set to be an exciting journey involving twelve European cities, starting from Rome: the Stadio Olimpico will play host to the opening match of the tournament between Italy and Turkey. From Italy’s capital to London: the final will be played at the famous Wembley Stadium.
After covering the EURO 2016 tournament in France, Sky Sport will once again be entrusted with the task of broadcasting the European Championship. All 51 matches – 24 of which will be exclusive – will be shown by the satellite platform. 24 teams will take part, and they have been divided into six groups consisting of four sides. Through the pay-TV broadcaster, extensive, technological and interactive coverage will be provided, and subscribers will also be able to follow the action while on the move.
Of course, RAI will be involved too: the public broadcasting company has always been a partner of the National Team and there for big events. RAI has acquired the broadcasting rights to 27 matches and will show highlights of the remaining 24. It goes without saying that the matches played by Roberto Mancini’s Italy side will be broadcast live. There will be round-the-clock coverage of the Azzurri, starting from the team's training camp at the Coverciano Technical Centre.
And now for a final note: the European Championship will also be shown on aeroplanes this summer thanks to IMG In-flight UK. UEFA EURO 2020 really is ready to take off...
