EURO 2024: BBC AND ITV CONFIRM GROUP STAGE TV COVERAGE AND MATCH SELECTION

BBC and ITV have revealed their coverage plans for the 2024 UEFA European Championship, following Saturday’s draw for the tournament.



UK television coverage of the tournament will kick-off on ITV [and STV in Scotland] on 14 June with exclusive live coverage of the opening match between hosts Germany and Scotland in Munich.



ITV will show England’s final Group game against Slovenia and will have picks one, two and three of the Round of 16 as well as first pick of the Semi-finals.


The BBC will show England’s first two group games against Serbia (16 June) and Denmark (20 June) as Gareth Southgate’s squad begin their bid to go one step further than they did in Euro 2020.


The BBC will also show Scotland’s group games against Switzerland (19 June) and Hungary (23 June) following their impressive qualifying campaign where they only suffered one loss.



The BBC will have first choice of the quarter-finals and will also show live games featuring some of the biggest teams in Europe including current holders Italy, World Cup runners-up France versus the Netherlands (21 June), Spain, Belgium and Portugal plus two group games featuring the hosts Germany.


If Wales qualify from the playoffs, the BBC will also broadcast their group games against France and the Netherlands.
