This summer, France will host the European Championship. While some fans are already lucky enough to have secured tickets for the event, the majority will be forced to watch the competition at home.

However, there are still plenty of ways to watch the European Championship in the United Kingdom, whether that’s at the local pub or via an online bookmaker such as Betway – here are just a few ways you can keep up with the tournament.

For those based in the United Kingdom, you will be able to watch every single game via ITV or BBC. Fortunately, terrestrial television managed to win the rights to cover the tournament, meaning that everybody can watch the competition rather than those who have either Sky Sports or BT Sport.

With the exception of Scotland, each of the home nations will feature in this summer’s tournament and fans across Britain will be keen to see how their neighbours get on.

If you’re unable to watch the competition via television, you could decide to follow the tournament’s progress via news websites – including but not limited to Flashscores and/or BBC Sport.

Both services can keep you up to date with the latest news and goals whilst they also have downloadable apps for mobile phone devices.

If you’re out on the move quite a lot for work, it is crucial for football fans to download one of these two apps in order to keep up with all of the breaking news.

Another method of watching the tournament is via an online bookmaker. In the modern era, many enjoy placing a small wager on the football and Betway, who will be a leading online betting site for Euro 2016, are just one of the bookmakers to offer a live service.

Furthermore, they can provide the latest information to the second and allow you to stake in-play bets during the match. If you can see that one team is performing better than the other, you have the option to stake that way.

During the tournament, it might not be plausible for you to watch every game live and therefore, a news app or website may be perfect. However, if you want to place a bet and watch the game at the same time, Betway’s website is the place to be.

One thing’s for sure, football fans from all over Europe are set to be treated to an entertaining, enjoyable tournament. If you manage to watch the games live, brilliant. If not, there are plenty of ways to catch up on the latest news and information.
