BUSAN, South Korea — Sixteen European nations will vie for the crown in the 14th European Championships for football starting this Friday (Saturday morning local time), which is being co-hosted for the first time by Poland and Ukraine in eight host cities.
Spain will be looking to defend their 2008 victory and are making a strong push to add more hardware to their impressive resume, though Germany has the title for most championships with three. The games start well into the night due to the time difference, but if you can’t make it out to the pub to watch, you can always try to catch it online with English commentary, or locally, where will be shown on KBS N Sports.
In Busan, there are a few options to watch the games live at night with a crowd.
