News : ARD, ZDF and RTL are showing games from the 2024 European Football Championship – thanks to the Telekom deal
The first and the second show 34 of the 51 matches at the tournament in three years, including all games of the German team. RTL has secured the 17 other games, as Telekom announced on Tuesday.
Surprisingly, in October 2019, Telekom secured the entire media rights for the European Championship in Germany from the European Football Union Uefa and prevailed against ARD and ZDF in the tender.
Now she has shared the rights in an extensive contract with the classic TV channels and in return has received broadcasting licenses for all European Championship matches this year and the 2022 World Cup.
