UEFA U21 Championship 2017 on Sky Sports

0

Europe’s next generation of top footballers go head-to-head this June as the UEFA European Under-21 Championship takes place in Poland and every match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Held every two years, the Under-21 European Championships, like its senior sister tournament, is often dominated by the heavyweights of international football, with the three most successful nations in the tournament’s history being Italy, Spain and England.

The last edition in the Czech Republic in 2015, however, saw the title claimed in shock fashion by Sweden, who beat Portugal in the final to walk away with their first trophy.

Indeed, it is the reigning champions who kick off the tournament in Kielce, as they face England, who are under the stewardship of Aidy Boothroyd.

The English side have not won a title since 1984, but they will be in confident mood, having qualified top of their group.

With a number of exciting attacking players, they enter the tournament as one of the favourites, alongside Germany, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

Lasting two weeks until a final at the Stadio Cracovia, Sky Sports will be there every step of the way as the next U21 kings of Europe are crowned.

Every match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports TV channels, as well as online via Sky Go and on mobile and tablet devices via the Sky Sports app.

In addition, fans can keep up to date with the latest news, video and features from the tournament via a dedicated section on the Sky Sports website – skysports.com/under-21s

Sky Sports regained the rights to screen the UEFA Under-21 Championship from BT Sport earlier this year, securing a new long-term deal that sees it become the exclusive rights holder of the tournament until at least 2021.

Commenting on the deal and the forthcoming championships, Sky Sports Head of Football Gary Hughes said:

“The UEFA Under-21 Championship 2017 strengthens our football offering for fans. The tournament unearths future greats and is incredibly difficult to predict which makes it such an exciting proposition. Who will be the next Harry Kane, can England win their first title since 1984? Sky Sports is the only place to find out.”

The Under-21 Championship is part of a busy summer of sport on Sky, which also includes ICC Champions Trophy, the ICC Women’s World Cup, British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand, The Open and Formula 1.
