With the European Football Championship 2020, a mega event of sport fell victim to the corona crisis. However, thanks to the catch-up dates for the final matches of the European cup competitions in club football, TV summer does not have to be completely without leather
RTL broadcasts four of the remaining 15 Europa League soccer games. Of the eight round of 16 matches, the free-to-air television station shows the return leg between FC Basel and Eintracht Frankfurt on August 6. In addition, one game per game round of the newly created final round in Germany can be seen at RTL: a quarter-final (August 10/11), a semi-final (August 16/17) and the final in Cologne (August 21). All encounters also run at the paid streaming service DAZN.
RTL reports before and after the games not from the studio, but from a beach bar. In the “Cologne Beach Club km 689”, the station wants to offer “reporting with summer feeling and real show character”. From 2021, the RTL Group will have broadcasting rights for all games in the Europa League and the new Europa Conference League. Most of the 282 games then run on the in-house streaming offer TVNow.
