Euro 2012 Viewers Guide

With the European Championships fast approaching I thought I’d put together a handy users guide. Mostly for myself in all honesty, it’s nice to have somewhere where all the games times and TV channels are listed, so I thought I’d do it here. I will also be putting together a prediction post, but that will come later.

The tournament scheduling is pretty good for viewing, most games kick off at 19.45 for us watching here in the UK. Hopefully the cooler evenings will also help the team. It may very well be the case that watching England play might not be an entirely enjoyable experience. But for those brave enough here are their games times and channels.

England

First up there are two friendlies:

26th May – England vs Norway – 19:45

2nd June – England vs Belgium – 17:15

Group games:

11th June England vs France, Group D, ITV17:00

15th June  – England vs Sweden, Group D, BBC19:45

19th June – England vs Ukraine, Group D, ITV19:45

If England were to finish second in the group there would go into a quarter-final against the winner of Group C, which contains both Spain and Italy.

23rd June – Quarter Finals, Group C winners vs Group D runners up, ITV19:45

In the unlikely event that they actually win the group, they would instead play the following day.

24th June –  Quarter Finals, Group C runners up vs Group D winners, BBC 19:45

The semi-finals take place on the 27th & 28th of June they both kick off at 19:45 and are both on BBC.

The final takes place on the 1st of July – It’s on both BBC & ITV  and again kicks off at 19:45
