Africa to stream live UEFA 2020 on ShowmaX Pro
Football fans across Africa will be able to stream every match of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Euro 2020, which runs from June 11, to July 11, 2021, on Showmax Pro.
With only 22 days to the postponed Euro 2020, the tournament has been brought closer home to football lovers across Africa who will be able to live stream all matches thanks to online subscription video on demand service, Showmax.
Portugal will be defending the championship, although France, Belgium and England are all rated higher, and will be playing with high expectations from fans.
MultiChoice CEO for General Entertainment and Connected Video, Yolisa Phahle, said “We know that Africa is football mad, and we’re thrilled that more people will be able to stream the matches on the go or at home.”

Europe traditionally produces outstanding soccer, with many of the world’s leading players given a grand stage.
There will be spectator limits in place, and matches will be held in 11 cities across 11 countries according to UEFA, to celebrate the 60th birthday of the tournament.
