ESPN networks and ABC will combine to televise more than 140 live hours of the UEFA European Football Championship 2020 beginning Friday, June 11 with the opening match in Rome, through the Final on Sunday, July 11 at historic Wembley Stadium in London.

All match telecasts for the UEFA European Football Championship will include pregame, halftime and postgame studio segments across ABC, ESPN and ESPN2.

A collection of classic UEFA European Football Championship matches will be available beginning June 8.

With 22 of the 24 national teams in the championship ranked among the top 50 teams in the FIFA World Rankings (April 2021), 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.

To commemorate the 60th year from the first championship, UEFA EURO 2020 matches will be played in 11 host cities across Europe – Amsterdam, Baku (Azerbaijan), Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, Seville (Spain) and St. Petersburg. The tournament was scheduled for June-July 2020, but was postponed to this summer due to COVID-19.

    I watched on Sling and that didnt happen to me! I spent the best $15 ever by upgrading to sling orange for a month. The Euros were great, so much drama and extra time matches all leading up to what we saw today for the last month, all for a $15 upgrade. I was watching on espn plus as my son was watching on the sling orange espn.

    I just cancelled the orange and went back to just sling blue. Awesome!

    I was watching the England-Italy EURO 2020 final on ESPN over Sling TV. Just as penalties were about to begin, it switched over to Wimbledon re-runs. The problem was not Sling, it was ESPN failing on its promise to bring us the whole Championship. I tried with Hulu and ESPN was showing Wimbledon there too – while the penalty shootout was taking place. WTF?
    I had to read the rest of the game on the qpp on my phone.

    @Cpcva. You don’t get Univision on with a local tuner?

    Our local station doesn’t carry any of the games.

    TUDN radio for english commentary? I’d probably listen to Five Live or Talksport for the radio commentaries

    @Cpva. The OTA of the final will be on Univision and the Cable will be ESPN & TUDN. ABC has the NBA finals on on July 10 and July 12, so that won’t be a conflict….but I am pretty sure that they Saturday MLS game of the week will be on ABC Saturday afternoon. Don’t quote me on this, as I can’t find the July scheduled yet…but I can’t think of anything else.

    Awesome I love that they will all be on ESPN+. So happy to see there is zero need for a cable package what so ever.

    Why no final on ABC?
