The Euro 2016 TV schedule is available for the event in June featuring many of the world’s greatest soccer nations including France, Spain, Germany and Italy as well as several entertaining teams such as Belgium, England, Ireland and Sweden, as well as surprise appearances by Wales, Northern Ireland, Iceland and Albania.
With all 24 national teams in the championship ranked among the top 40 teams in the FIFA World Rankings, Euro 2016 tickets are the hottest tickets in town. The UEFA European Football Championship is arguably the most prestigious and competitive international soccer tournament in the world. The first championship was in 1960, hosted by France.
Of the 24 participating teams, 23 earned spots in the month-long quadrennial tournament through a two-year qualification process among 53 UEFA member nations while the host nation – France – received an automatic berth.
The last three FIFA World Cup champions – Italy (2006), Spain (2010) and Germany (2014) – join other 21 Union of European Football Associations’ (UEFA) national teams to vie to become the footballing champions of Europe. Two-time defending champion Spain seeks to be the first country to win four European titles, after becoming the first to repeat in 2008 and 2012.
