Watch the UEFA European U21 Championship Live Online

U21 MatchThe UEFA European Under-21 Championship is a football competition (soccer for Americans) organized by Europe’s governing body, the UEFA. This year, the tournament takes place between 16th June and 30th June 2019 in Italy. There are a number of broadcast partners that will be showing the tournament, so there is plenty of coverage. Those include such channels as ESPN in the US, TSN and RDS in Canada, and more. However, if you want to watch specific coverage or are outside of the area where coverage is, you need to use a VPN.

Beginning in 1978, the U21 competition has existed since in the same form. To be eligible for the campaign ending in 2019, the players need to be born in or after 1996. The tournament serves as a qualifier for the Summer Olympics and is considered to be a stepping stone towards going to a “senior” team.

Let’s take a look at the teams that qualify for the tournament this year.

  • Italy
  • Spain
  • France
  • England
  • Serbia
  • Germany
  • Croatia
  • Denmark
  • Belgium
  • Romania
  • Poland
  • Austria

As you can see, there are some unexpected teams that show up in the tournament that have not made many appearances if at all. As far as TV coverage goes, you can watch it on ESPN in the US. That means you need to have a cable/satellite/streaming service subscription if you want to use that option. Let’s take a look at the other channels where you can expect to find coverage.
