Hi Guys,

Just throwing it out there but who would be keen to come on a tour next summer to Euro 2016?

Thinking maybe 5 group games and 3 knockout matches across Marseille, Nice, St Etienne and Paris.

Currently in early stages of securing tickets, accommodation, flights, etc and talking to some fairly prominent football players to help host the tour.

Just wanted to get a gauge for how many people would consider something like this and what they would pay.

Thinking 3 weeks and anywhere from $10,000-$20,000 depending on how much the accomodation options come through at.

The Euro's in France is going to be something else so let me know if you would be interested.

Thanks

Sky TV have started screening the Euro 2016 preview shows every week so means they must have the rights.

You will also be able to watch any pre-tournament friendlies and the tournament itself for free delayed here on demand:

http://www.fullmatchesandshows.com/

I watched every game in the Copa America there last year. All English commentaries from BeIN Sports etc.

Good thing with watching a video of a match is you can fast forward any boring bits or watch bits of a game if you don't have time to watch the whole thing. And watch it when it suites you of course.

Full match videos plus highlights are usually posted there very quickly after a game.

They also have games from the major European leagues and football magazine shows..

could have been on any number of devices aside from a TV. But sky have the rights, so there goes that possibility.

I asked sky/fan pass if they will show if on channel 1-4 so I could buy a fan pass, they sent my a replay a link to the website where you can choose a day, week or month. Doh! Any ideas?

They're showing all 51 games live plus replays so I imagine they will have some dedicated pop-up channels but also on the regular sports channels.

Some games will be free-to-air on Prime TV which is a first:

https://www.sky.co.nz/-/sky-scores-big-with-the-ue...

“As well as showing all 51 games live, we’ll have match day highlights, replays at convenient times and full coverage of the opening and closing ceremonies.”

"Prime will have live coverage of several UEFA EURO 2016 matches including the opening ceremony and opening match, the final and the closing and trophy ceremonies.

A full coverage schedule will be made available on www.sky.co.nz/sport closer to the tournament start date. Details of Prime’s UEFA EURO 2016 schedule will also be confirmed closer to the tournament."

You may find it more cost effective to do what I have done and subscribe to Sky through their marketing company where you can get a very good special offer of Sky Basic plus Sky Sport for only $39 / month plus a free My Sky box for recording stuff.

Minimum contract of only six months after which you are free to quit (but you can opt to keep the special offer for up to one year)

This offer is not available by contacting Sky TV but only their marketing company Icon at this number:

0800 475 988

I rang and had Sky installed within three days.

I'm very happy paying only $39 per month for all the basic Sky channels plus the sport channels.

After installation, you then deal exclusively with Sky TV, not the marketing company (say if you want to add any other channels etc. or have any problems).

If you take up this offer now, you will also get the coming European club finals, the FA Cup final, the four EPL club channels on Sky plus next season's A-League, All Whites matches etc. too

You can do what I do and quit Sky after your special offer finishes (I'm keeping it for a year): give Sky the required one month's notice of disconnection - and then wait two months without Sky so you're then eligible for any special promotions again. Phone Icon Marketing again and get the same offer!

fanpass is only a real long term option if they include the popup channels. It's silly that they don't. 

Plus having game on demand is the minimum standard for such services too, which they also don't have.

Totally agree. It's ludicrous that fanpass doesn't cover pop-up channels, when it's marketed as a way to watch specific games or events without having to subscribe to Sky. What if what you want to watch is on a pop-up channel?

Does anyone know if fullmatchesandshows.com will be playing Euro 16 on demand? Also, it's a little annoying that they've changed their video format so it's not Chrome cast compatible now but still a great site to watch football on (thanks Big Pete!)

People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people.

Group E is certainly the most interesting - but whether that will lead to interesting games is another question.

Teams to look out for outside the traditional big teams that could be good to follow: Poland and Austria (not counting Belgium there, as quite a few bookies have them as either top3 or top 5 favourites).

As for my lot - if we can't get out of that group, we should just give up. And after that, who knows...

You'd have to say Iceland as well. They qualified second from their group just behind the Czech Republic and they got 6 points out of the Netherlands including a 3–0 home win. Best goal difference in the group too. They've got Sigurdsson from the Premier League, a couple of Bundesliga players, a Serie A player and two Championship players. This is their golden generation.

Considering how in this 24-team edition of the Euros 4 out of 6 groups' third-placed teams will make it to the round of 16 and they've got Hungary in their group, they're looking good for making it to the knockout stage. If they can manage a draw or something against an underwhelming Portugal—if Ronaldo has an off-day—then they could really make history. 

I don't know if they'll ever qualify again considering they only have ~300,000 people and are perennial losers in the qualifying stages, so let's hope they can do something with this set of players!

Yeah, Hungary is one of the weakest teams in the competition, and even just a win there might be enough to get them through to the knock-out stage.

Iceland aren't a pretty side to watch, but they've been quite effective in the way they play. They remind me a bit of the 1990s Norway.
