Mediaset Spain has released this Wednesday the coverage that it will carry out during Euro 2021. After a heart attack League, a recently concluded Champions League and a Europa League with Spanish victory, this coming Friday, June 11, the postponed Euro Cup will begin 2020. The European competition par excellence celebrates its 60th anniversary with a special edition in which, for the first time in history, 24 teams will play in 11 venues spread across the continent, with the public in the stands.
Mediaset has shown its cards, revealing the games that Telecinco and Cuatro will offer until June 19. From that moment, the group reserves the strategy that it will follow with the following meetings, although everything indicates that there will be few changes. The Fuencarral group will offer the 51 games on its main channels and on Mitele.
Manu Carreño and José Antonio Luque will be in charge of the narration of the matches
Furthermore, la Eurocopa will flood the grid of Telecinco, Cuatro and Be Mad with daily special programs made both on set, as in the Ciudad del Fútbol de las Rozas -where the Spanish National Team will be concentrated- and in the stadiums themselves. The Eurocup will have an extraordinary display in the digital environment and with Mitele Plus Euro Total, a 24-hour channel with exclusive content for subscribers to the Mitele Plus basic package. As a great novelty, viewers will have an alternative signal on the Mitele website to follow the main matches, including those in Spain, with narration and comments from the most prominent soccer youtubers at the national level.
For this extensive coverage, Mediaset España will have a human team of more than 100 people led by JJ Santos, who will have Manu Carreño and José Antonio Luque in charge of the narration of the matches; with José Antonio Camacho, Kiko Narváez and Fernando Morientes as commentators; and with specialized journalists Pablo Pinto, Ricardo Reyes, Aritz Gabilondo, Juan Castro, Luis García, Matías Prats Chacón, Luis Alberto Vaquero and Menottinto during the broadcasts and on the programs.

With three victories in its record, Spain is together with Germany the team that has won the Eurocup the most times: in 1964 against the Soviet Union, in 2008 against Germany and in 2012 when they beat Italy 4-0, the biggest win seen in a final in the history of the championship. In case of being victorious in this edition, Spain will write its name in gold letters in the Eurocup by becoming the country with the most wins to its name.

The last hour of the competition, the results, the goals, the statistics, the training sessions, the controversies, the analysis, interviews with the protagonists of the day and a general review of each day will backbone the contents of these spaces that will be interspersed between the grills by Cuatro, Telecinco and Be Mad.
