ELEVEN SPORTS NETWORK will bring LIVE and EXCLUSIVE coverage of this summer’s UEFA EURO 2016 tournament to fans in Singapore.
The full package includes qualifiers and tournament rights, with the network showcasing Europe’s best players in action for their national teams at this year’s biggest international football competition, as the month-long football feast kicks off in France on 10 June.
Viewers will be treated to up to four LIVE and EXCLUSIVE matches per day during the Group stage of the competition, as star players including Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal), Wayne Rooney (England) and Zlatan Ibrahimović (Sweden) look to lead their sides to victory.
“UEFA EURO 2016 is one of the most popular and important football competitions in the world and is exactly the type of major event we want to bring to the fans,” says Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS NETWORK. “These rights mean supporters in Singapore can still get their football-fix outside of the domestic league season.”
“Thanks to the new and extended format, under which a total of 24 teams will be contesting the title for the first time in the history of the competition, UEFA EURO 2016 will be more exciting than ever,’’ Guy-Laurent Epstein, Marketing Director at UEFA Events SA said. “We are pleased to welcome newcomer ELEVEN SPORTS NETWORK to the UEFA broadcast family and look forward to working with them to bring UEFA EURO 2016 to football fans in Singapore.”
UEFA EURO 2016 will see a total of 24 teams contest the tournament for the first time in history, with the Group stage running from 10-22 June followed by the Round of 16 knockout stage from 25-27 June. The eight winners will progress to the Quarter-finals, played between 30 June-3 July, followed by the Semi-finals on 6 and 7 July, and the Final on 10 July.
