First football deal secured for talkSPORT 2

talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 will broadcast live radio commentary on UEFA EURO 2016 and 2020 matches.

The stations will broadcast all 51 matches live from the opening game on June 10 through to the final on July 10, as it signs as an official radio station for the competitions in the UK.

Calum Macaulay, talkSPORT Managing Director, said: “UEFA EURO 2016 will be the first time that four nations from the British Isles have been involved in a major tournament since 1958, so it’s a massive opportunity for our commercial partners to engage with a mainly male audience next summer. Having talkSPORT 2 up and running will allow us to broadcast the final group games across either station and give listeners their choice of matches. Our coverage will include over 500 hours on location in France with the best sports broadcasters in the business.

“As with our coverage for previous tournaments, we’ll be going wall to wall with our output, on air, on line, digitally and in print. It is a major investment for us and to broadcast both the 2016 and 2020 tournaments signals our continued commitment to invest in live rights to grow audiences for our commercial partners.”

talkSPORT 2 is due to launch in March 2016 and will be available on national DAB, online and through the talkSPORT 2 app.
