The 2024 UEFA European Championship (aka Euro 2024) is set to kick off in less than two months. The domestic soccer season is drawing to a close (with the Premier League heading for a photo finish), and soon the attention will turn to international football as 24 teams from across Europe compete to be crowned Euro 2024 champions.

The 2024 edition of the quadrennial tournament will be held in Germany, and it’s a fitting location for the prestigious knock-out competition as the German national team has won the Euros three times. However, the current holders are Italy, who beat England on penalties at Euro 2020, but made somewhat tough work of qualifying finishing runner-up in their group. 

The clear favorites at this stage are France. The current French squad packs world-class quality in every position, and last won the Euros in 2016. France also won the World Cup in 2018 and made a further World Cup final in 2022. Les Blues are clearly the team to beat. 

Other teams heading to Germany with their eyes firmly on the prize include an England side that feels like it’s coming to the end of a cycle under manager Gareth Southgate. Meanwhile, Spain, Portugal, Belgium and the Netherlands will believe they have a realistic shot at glory. It’s a competitive field across the board, and this should lead to plenty of thrilling matches and stunning goals. 

The good news is that Tom’s Guide is on hand to guide you through the entire tournament, from the group stage to the grand final. We’re offering a complete guide to watching Euro 2024.

Every single game is set to be broadcast around the globe, with the tournament being especially easy to watch in the U.S. and U.K. But don’t worry if you’ll be somewhere else during Euro 2024, or will be on holiday during a key match, we’ll make sure you don’t miss a moment. Read on to find out how to watch Euro 2024 wherever you are online and for free.
