Euro 2024 kicks off on Friday evening (14 June), when host nation Germany takes on Scotland in Berlin in the opening fixture of the month-long tournament that will be delivered to over 130 broadcast and radio partners in over 200 territories worldwide.

At Euro 2024, UEFA will be responsible for all host broadcast operations, providing rights holders with coverage of all 51 matches plus supplementary editorial content and digital services.

UEFA has appointed six of Europe's top TV match directors to oversee its live coverage, all of whom have experience of covering other UEFA competitions, as well as other European and global tournaments.

They are: Sebastian von Freyberg (Germany), Knut Fleischmann (Germany), Laurent Lachand (France), Fran ois Lanaud (France), Jamie Oakford (UK) and Oscar Lago (Spain).

At their disposal will be a 46-camera configuration - the standard camera plan for all matches, UEFA said.

Some 33 of the cameras will be used to cover the on-field action, while the rest will focus on events surrounding the match, such as team arrivals, fan coverage and helicopter shots, providing supplementary content for the range of feeds provided by UEFA.

The camera plan includes:

Eight super-slow-motion triple-speed cameras

Two high-speed cameras

Two high-speed polecams, one at each end

One aerial camera system

Two cinematic RF cameras

Two camera cranes with hotheads behind each goal

Eight handheld cameras

Euro 2024 will take place across ten stadiums in Germany, in Berlin, Cologne, Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Dortmund, Leipzig, Gelsenkirchen, Stuttgart and D sseldorf.

Each compound varies in size, with the Olympiastadion Berlin - where the final will take place the largest, at approximately 10,500sqm.

UEFA's host broadcast operation also includes unilateral services at the venues, where 1,800 of UEFA's total of 2,300 broadcast operations staff will be based.

At all venues, UEFA will provide its broadcast partners with what it described as a full range of bookable services and facilities for their unilateral needs , including commentary positions with different set-ups, stand-up and interview positions, studios and platforms to produce their live shows from, and various unilateral camera positions.

The aim is to allow broadcast partners to customise the coverage of any given match to their own requirements. The facilities include:

86 to 150 (for the final) commentary positions at each match

Four to eight (for the final) tribune presentation positions

Two to four (for the final) pitch-view studios

14 pitch presentation positions

Eight to ten TV flash interview positions and four to eight radio flash interview positions.
