Women’s football celebrates a festival on Wednesday evening. At the start of the European Championship in England in the traditional Old Trafford in Manchester, the organizers reported a full house, around 74,000 are expected for the opening game. This is how football fans can see the European Women’s Championship live on free TV and live streams.

The opening match hosts England against Austria. The first starts at 8:15 p.m. with the preliminary reporting with Claus Lufen and Nia Künzer, before Christina Graf comments on the 90 minutes from Old Trafford from 9:00 p.m. In the online offer of the sports show, ARD also offers a live stream.

ARD, ZDF and DAZN: Don’t miss any of the 31 European Championship games

Alternatively, DAZN customers have the option of streaming England against Austria live on DAZN, commented here by Christoph Fetzer. The streaming provider also has the rights for the other 30 European Championship games and shows the entire European Championship in full length.

In the case of public broadcasters, ARD and ZDF alternately share the transmission, although not all games can be seen on free TV. If this is not the case, both broadcasters offer live streams in their online offer.

Watch all DFB games on free TV

However, Erste and ZDF are definitely there for all Germany games: The DFB women will play the start on Friday at 9:00 p.m. against Denmark. The Germans still have a score to settle with the Danes, because at the last European Championship in 2017 they were the ones who ensured that the DFB women were eliminated from the quarter-finals.

Germany’s second group game against Spain will then be shown on the first (Tuesday, July 12, 9:00 p.m.) before the final group game against Finland will be shown again on ZDF (Saturday, July 16, 9:00 p.m.). Both broadcasters also offer live streams in their online offerings.

Germany’s women’s soccer team is a fixture in the list of favorites at the European Championships. Since the first European Championship in 1989, the DFB women have lost only three games at the tournament and won the title eight times out of twelve, six times in a row between 1995 and 2013.
