  • Group A: Rome and Baku
  • Group B: Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen
  • Group C: Amsterdam and Bucharest
  • Group D: London and Glasgow

Are BBC or ITV showing live matches?

THE COUNTRY rarely comes together as much as it does during a major international competition.

And you’ll be delighted to know that every minute of Euro 2020 will be broadcast on free-to-air TV in the UK.

The BBC and ITV will share coverage over the month, with England games (should they make the finals) decided once the draw is made.
