Sky Sports to show UEFA U21 Championship in June
16th May 2017
Sky Sports will show every match from this summer’s UEFA Under-21 Championship™ 2017.
The tournament, involving Europe’s best young players, kicks off live on Sky Sports on June 16, and culminates with the final from Krakow on June 30.
Sky Sports has won the rights to show the next three tournaments through to 2021, with hosts Poland in England’s group this summer alongside Slovakia and holders Sweden.
PFA Young Player of the Year nominee Jordan Pickford, Everton’s Tom Davies and Leicester’s Demarai Gray are among those in contention to play for the Three Lions.
Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard scored the winning goal against eventual winners Sweden at the last Championships with Harry Kane, John Stones, Jack Butland and Michael Keane all featuring for England in 2015.
And Aidy Boothroyd’s men will look to progress further than their group stage exit last time around against equally stiff competition.
Sky Sports Head of Football Gary Hughes said: “The UEFA Under-21 Championship™ 2017 strengthens our football offering for fans. The tournament unearths future greats and is incredibly difficult to predict which makes it such an exciting proposition. Who will be the next Harry Kane, can England win their first title since 1984? Sky Sports is the only place to find out.”
The UEFA Under-21 Championship™ 2017 will follow the end of the domestic football season on Sky Sports, which includes the Premier League run-in, the EFL play-offs, SPFL, La Liga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup, Copa Del Rey and Copa Italia finales. Later in the summer, the football continues with The Premier League Asia Trophy and the inaugural Star Sixes tournament in London, which will pit past stars such as Steven Gerrard, Deco, Roberto Carlos, Michael Ballack and other stars in a six-a-side format.« Back to News
