The 2020 UEFA European Championship finally is here.

Delayed a year by the coronavirus pandemic, the ambitious continent-wide tournament will take place in 11 cities separated by four time zones. While the tournament had been held in multiple countries previously (2012 in Poland and Ukraine, 2008 in Austria and Switzerland and 2000 in Belgium and the Netherlands), this is a one-off, 11-country event before it's hosted solely by Germany in 2024.

The tournament will take place from June 11 until the final on July 11. Both the semifinals and final will be held at Wembley Stadium in London.

How to watch Euro 2020 – Matchday 16 June anywhere in the world

If you're out of the country during Euro 2020, you can still get access to a live stream of every match by making use of our best rated VPN to get past those geo-restrictions.

With most domestic broadcasters locking streaming services to their country, you may hit a wall when it comes to accessing the likes of BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, ESPN or Optus Sports when overseas. However, by getting yourself a handy streaming VPN, you can hop on a server within the US or UK (or anywhere else for that matter depending on where your online content is geo-restricted to), and this will switch your IP address to make it appear as if you're browsing right from the comfort of your own home.
