The 2020 European Championships will take place from Friday 11th June – Sunday 11th July 2021.
All 51 matches will be broadcast between the BBC and ITV as 24 teams play across 11 host cities for a place in the final, which will be held at Wembley Stadium.
The tournament was originally to be played at 13 venues but two hosts were later removed: Brussels in December 2017 due to delays with the building of the Eurostadium, and Dublin in April 2021 as there was no guarantee that spectators could attend.
Spain changed their host city from Bilbao to Seville to allow an audience at matches.
Portugal are the defending champions, having won the 2016 competition. The video assistant referee (VAR) system will make its debut at the European Championship in this tournament.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic across Europe, broadcasting will come from BBC Sport’s studio facility at Media City, Salford and UK-based stadiums with Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Eilidh Barbour and Mark Chapman all leading on the BBC’s Euros presentations.
They will be joined by a host of former England, Scotland and Wales stars, including Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand, Alex Scott, Micah Richards, Ashley Williams, Mark Hughes, Shelley Kerr and James McFadden.
Joining them on co-comms are Dion Dublin and Karen Carney and covering the England games are former internationals Jermaine Jenas, Martin Keown and Danny Murphy. Robbie Savage will offer insight on Wales and Scotland are covered by James McFadden.
The BBC will show the opening game on Friday between Turkey and Italy as well as one of England’s group games. ITV will broadcast England’s clash with Scotland and will have the first choice of the semi-finals.
The BBC will have first and second pick of the games at the Round of 16 and Quarter-Final stages.
ITV’s Euros squad will offer a wealth of insight, expertise and opinion from a punditry lineup of Ian Wright, Roy Keane, Gary Neville, Patrick Vieira, Graeme Souness, Ashley Cole, Eni Aluko, Robert Earnshaw, Emma Hayes, Nigel de Jong, John Collins, Joe Ledley, Nadia Nadim, Scott Brown and Andros Townsend.
ITV will once again employ a referee analyst with former referee Peter Walton on hand to explain and clarify key decisions.
