SKY SCORES BIG WITH THE UEFA EURO 2016

SKY Television has won the broadcast rights to the UEFA EURO 2016 meaning football fans across New Zealand will be able to catch all the action on SKY SPORT when the championship kicks off in June.

Starting on 11 June (NZT), SKY SPORT will broadcast all 51 UEFA EURO 2016 games live, including the round-of-16, quarter finals, semi-finals and the final, which is on 11 July (NZT) at the Stade de France in Paris.

Prime will have live coverage of several UEFA EURO 2016 matches including the opening ceremony and opening match, the final and the closing and trophy ceremonies.

“It’s great to have won the rights to the UEFA European Championship for the sixth time. The UEFA European Championship is second only to the World Cup in featuring the world’s best players and top teams. We expect fans will lap up every minute of the action,” says SKY’s Director of Sport Richard Last.

“As well as showing all 51 games live, we’ll have match day highlights, replays at convenient times and full coverage of the opening and closing ceremonies.”

Current champions Spain will return to compete against 23 other teams at the 2016 championship which features the likes of Germany, France, Italy and England. Five nations will make their UEFA EURO debut with Slovakia, Wales, Northern Ireland, Iceland and Albania lining up against Europe’s football giants.
