Euro 2020

by: Adam Smith


The Six and TF1, which share the broadcast of the competition, have announced the matches they will offer on their airwaves.

Once again, M6 won the jackpot. The channel will broadcast the final of Euro 2020, which will take place on 12 July in London, when it had already broadcast the Euro 2016 final successfully. If France had then lost to Portugal (1-0), the Six had attracted 20.8 million viewers, signing the fourth best audience in the history of television and breaking its own record. A successful operation, therefore, that could be repeated this summer if France managed to reach the last step of the competition.
