How can I watch European Championship in football online?
Here we will describe several ways to watch the European Championship in football online on different TV networks all across Europe. Choose the TV network and country that sounds like the best option to you!
The European Championship in football on UK TV
It is very easy to watch Euro 2020 online. The best and the quickest way to do so is by watching it on TV in England where BBC and ITV will broadcast the event. They both have free live streams available online, the only requirement you need to fulfill is to have an English IP address. That is something you can easily get using the VPN services of ExpressVPN.
If you visit their website you will get access to their amazing summer discount which will give you their product at fantastic prices. You can then sign up and download their program and connect to a server in England. Once connected you will have a UK IP address and can watch the live streams from all Euro 2020 matches on BBC and ITV online at once.
Some practical information
- It is very important to use ExpressVPN and not just “any” VPN provider. Both BBC and ITV are blocking VPN users, so if you just use a random VPN, you will be blocked, even though you have an IP address in the United Kingdom.
- You need to register a free user at both the BBC and the ITV website. Make sure to register your user with a ZIP code in the United Kingdom.
- This method can be used to watch all other programs available on the BBC and the ITV website, not only to watch the European Championship in football online.
- These instructions can also be followed to watch the Summer Olympics in 2021 online (Tokyo 2020) on BBC and on other TV networks worldwide.
I hope these instructions will help you watch Euro 2020 online on British TV. If you have any questions or need further help, just write a comment!
The European Championship in football on German TV
If you want to watch Euro 2020 online for free on German TV then you will again need to use ExpressVPN and their super special summer discount. Visit their website, download their client and connect to a server in Germany. You will then get a German IP address which is needed to watch the free live streams from Euro 2020 and all matches played there on ZDF (zdf.de) and ARD (ard.de).
Do not forget that ExpressVPN has a thirty day full refund policy so you will get your money back at once if you are not satisfied with what you get or their product.

Which teams will play in the European Championship in Football in 2021?
This is a very interesting group. Italy might be the favorites, but based on the accomplishments of the four teams in the group, anything can happen. Turkey is capable of beating even the best teams on a good day, but on a bad day, they are really bad. Switzerland is quite stable, Italy can be amazing, and Wales got all the way to the semi-final in the European Championship in football in 2016.
The matches in group A will be played in Rome and in Baku.
Belgium has been fantastic for a long time, but they still haven’t managed to get to the final of the FIFA World Cup, nor in the European Championship. Will this be their tournament? Russia is a great team, Denmark has some great players and they are very disciplined. Finland should be the weak link in this group, but they have been playing extremely disciplined and well in the last 2-3 years.
The matches in group B will be played in Copenhagen and in St. Petersburg
- North Macedonia
This is a group without the biggest profiles. Austria is a good team, but they were disappointing heavily in Euro 2016. The Netherlands didn’t even qualify for that tournament, but hopefully, they are better now. North Macedonia is most likely the weakest team in this group, while Ukraine comes as an outsider. This is a group in which anything can happen, but we do believe that Netherlands will win the group.
The matches in group C will be played in Bucharest and in Amsterdam.
- Czech Republic
This is going to be a very interesting group. England has a habit of doing bad in big tournaments, but they are still the big favorites in this group. Croatia has great players, but they haven’t been as good as they were some years ago. The Czech Republic has a young squad with much talent, while Scotland is fighting like lions. Most people expect Croatia and England to win this group, but I suspect that the Czech Republic will cause trouble for both Croatia and England.
The matches in group D will be played in London and in Glasgow.
This is one of the toughest groups in the European Champions. Poland has the best striker in the world at the moment in their team (Robert Lewandovski), while Spain has some of the best players. Sweden has the typical Scandinavian discipline and they will for sure set up a fight as they play against Poland and Spain. Slovakia was better 4-5 years ago, but since this is a tournament, anything can heppen!
The matches in group E will be played in St. Petersburg and in Sevilla
This is the toughest of all the groups in the European Championship. Just read those names once again. France will play against Germany and Portugal during the group stage. Only two of the teams will get on to the knockout stage. Poor Hungary! But, in the European Championship in 2016 they surprised everyone and won their group, in front of Portugal, Iceland, and Austria. No matter what, every single match in this group will be interesting, so make sure to pay attention to what is going on right here.
The matches in group F will be played in München and in Budapest.
