StarTimes to broadcast UEFA Euro 2020 in Africa

The most-awaited football event of the year is coming.

UEFA Euro 2020 is starting on 11 June and as official broadcaster, StarTimes is committed to ensure that every football fan across Africa can fully enjoy this football feast.

“After all we have been through, Euro 2020 is more than a football tournament. It is the proof that the world is able to celebrate together again. During one month, from Africa to Europe, from South America to Asia, football fans will chant, cry and laugh together while watching this thrilling tournament. It is going to be amazing,” said Philippe Zou, StarTimes Content Operation Center Director.

“But in the past African fans have been forced to pay ever higher prices to watch major competitions. This time, StarTimes will launch special offers to guarantee that every African family can be part of this football festival.”

Africa’s leading digital TV operator StarTimes will air all 51 games of the tournament live and in high definition (HD). Commentaries will be available in international (English, French, Portuguese) and local languages. And games will be shown on all platforms, DTT and DTH as well as streaming app StarTimes ON.

 “With more watching options, we are catering everyone’s needs. Whether you live in a rural or an urban area, whether you watch football on TV or on your mobile phone, whether you are able to watch the game live or not, StarTimes will deliver the best watching experience.”

The highly anticipated tournament was postponed in March 2020 following the COVID-19 outbreak and is now slated to take place from 11 June to 11 July. This will be the 16th UEFA European Championship bringing together 24 international men’s football powerhouses fighting to be declared champions of Europe.

The tournament kicks off with Turkey taking on Italy.
