Recent Euro’s result!

Italy were the previous winners after beating England in the final at Wembley in 2021.

“The BBC has proven time and again that we have the ability to bring the biggest sporting events to the widest audience,”

“The previous Uefa European Championships were a huge success so we’re delighted that we’ve completed this deal for the next two tournaments that we hope will provide even more memorable moments for viewers.” said Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport.

UEFA said a global audience of 328 million tuned in to watch the Euro 2020 final as England lost on penalties.

The UK audience almost peaked with 31 million watching the final that happened in 2021. This was due to England making it through.

With both BBC and ITV on board to stream the Euros, this could suggest that more numbers will be able to watch it now.

Allowing more and more fans to watch the tournament unfold and see if their team are able to win the Euro’s.

“This deal keeps the Euros available on free-to-air television for viewers for the coming years.

“Having delivered the biggest ever UK single channel football audience of 27.6 million at last year’s Euros, for England’s semi-final victory over Denmark, we’re looking forward to bringing to the widest audiences the very best coverage of tournaments that have such broad appeal.” ITV director of Sport Niall Sloane said.
