Euro 2016

FBL-EURO-2016-FRA-DRAW

The European Championships of 2016 was bigger than ever before, with a record 24 teams in the finals. France was the destination for a fantastic summer of football. It was where I made my tournament debut, travelling to the three England group games. I also had tickets for a last 16 match and a quarter final, plus if England made it – quarter final, semi final and final matches. Below will chart how the results went and how far into the tournament I made it. Accompanying me were home nation support from Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, along with broadcasters BBC and ITV.

Euro 2016 groups

Full details of every match are below; from the date, kick off time, programme length, result and, of course, the all important personnel used on the broadcast. Both channels were based in Paris; the BBC overlooking the Eiffel Tower, whilst ITV had a view of the Notre Dame with the option to be indoors or out on the balcony in an open-air setting. It was a beautiful setting for a fantastic tournament. Relive it now. It starts here.
