UEFA Euro 2020 has arrived! UEFA is officially referring to the event as Euro 2020 while some folks are calling it Euro 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in last year’s tournament getting postponed, and thus we have Euro 2020/2021. Call it whatever you want.

The tournament gets underway on Friday, June 11 when Italy and Turkey kick off the group stage. Group play runs through Wednesday, June 23 with anywhere from two to four games each day after the single game opener on Friday. The group stage wraps on the 23rd and from there, the top two in each group plus four best third-placed teams advance to the knockout stage.

There will be two rest days after the group stage. The round of 16 opens on Saturday, June 26 and runs four days. The quarterfinals are on Friday, July 2 and Saturday, July 3. The semifinals are on Tuesday, July 6 and Wednesday, July 7. The Final is on Sunday, July 11.

Here’s a complete schedule for the tournament, with start times in ET. You can also view a PDF color-coded by group here. ESPN and ABC will broadcast the entire tournament with five matches on ABC, 40 on ESPN, and six on ESPN2. All 51 matches will be available via live stream on ESPN+ and via the ESPN app.
