Optus Sport Announces Broadcast Partners for UEFA EURO 2024

Optus Sport has joined forces with leading Australian brands to bring live and exclusive coverage of UEFA EURO 2024. The tournament kicks off this Saturday with hosts Germany taking on Scotland at 5am (AEST).

Optus Sport customers can watch every match in full, enjoy mini-matches, or catch highlights. Hisense, Hungry Jack’s, TAB, and Ford will sponsor Optus Sport’s coverage. Starting June 15, subscribers will witness 24 teams competing for the Henri Delaunay Cup, with the final on July 15.

Howard Rees, Head of Optus Sport, expressed excitement about the partnerships. “We are thrilled to work with these amazing brands during the tournament,” he said. “We expect strong viewer numbers, similar to the UEFA EURO 2020 final, which remains the most watched match in Optus Sport history.”
