- Tournament to kick off on STV and STV Player with Scotland v Germany on 14 June
- STV has first picks for Round of 16 and Semi-finals
- Full coverage schedule revealed by STV and BBC
STV has revealed its coverage plans for the 2024 UEFA European Championships, following Saturday’s draw for the tournament.
On 14 June, the opening match between Scotland and hosts Germany in Munich will, for viewers in Scotland, air exclusively on STV and STV Player.
STV will also show England’s final Group game against Slovenia and will have picks one, two and three of the Round of 16, as well as first pick of the semi-finals. Plus, the channel will cover the winner of Play-off A, which could be Wales, against Austria, in Group D on 21 June.
STV will also show what is likely to be one of the most anticipated early tournament games – the Group B match between Spain, who are among the favourites, and Italy, the holders. Among STV’s Group stage coverage are games featuring many pundits’ favourites, France (against Austria on 17 June), as well as other heavy-hitters in Portugal (v Turkey on 22 June), Croatia (v Spain on 15 June) and Belgium (v Slovakia on 17 June).
STV has secured joint rights for the Final with the BBC, which has also announced plans to show Scotland’s Group games against Switzerland (19 June) and Hungary (23 June) and England’s first two Group games against Serbia (16 June) and Denmark (20 June).
All STV games will be shown on STV and STV Player, as well as ITV and ITVX for viewers outside of Scotland.
