SBS has successfully secured the rights to broadcast selected LIVE EURO 2008 matches, including the opening game and final.
The free-to-air EURO 2008 agreement allows SBS to broadcast eight LIVE matches, including the opening game and final, in addition to a daily highlights programme, match replays and a 'Road to Euro' preview series.
SBS Radio will broadcast matches in languages of the participating nations in addition to English, with daily updates, interviews and live crosses in most language programs.
"2008 will mark eight years since Euro has been available on free-to-air and this is just another example of SBS’s commitment to providing all Australians with access to world class events," said SBS Managing Director, Shaun Brown.
"Being able to deliver an international tournament of this significance, across the corporation’s multi-media platforms is a fantastic opportunity for the network."
The UEFA European Football Championship is the world’s second major football event, topped only by the FIFA World Cup, for which SBS is the official broadcaster.
EURO 2008 will be co-hosted by Austria and Switzerland, between June 7-29 and will also be broadcast on subscription television through Setanta Sports Australia.
On Sunday 2 December at 10:40pm, SBS will broadcast the 'EURO 2008' draw with Andrew Orsatti and Chief Football Analyst, Craig Foster hosting the presentation.
