How to watch Euro 96: complete England schedule and online streaming from anywhere

Source: TechRadar

Football's socially distancing its way home this week, with ITV hosting a complete re-airing of the 1996 European Championships this May. Here's how to watch Euro 96 and stream every classic England match online for free no matter where you in the world today - plus the full ITV Hub Euro 96 match schedule.

Whether this is a blessing or a curse will depend on how stoical you're able to remain about football. On the one hand, it's a great way to soften the blow of Euro 2020 being delayed until next year. On the other hand...many of us know all too well how Euro 96 ended for England and the 14 other teams who failed to lift the trophy at Wembley that summer.

Yet whatever the result, Euro 96 still holds a special place in the hearts and minds of many fans. 

Maybe it's because it was the last time England hosted a major international football tournament. Maybe it was that Gazza goal. Maybe you simply liked singing along to 'Three Lions', the ultimate footballing anthem, as warbled by Baddiel, Skinner and The Lightning Seeds - which somehow just seemed to perfectly capture the Cool Britannia mood at its peak.

Or maybe, it's because you're a German and you know how this all ends. Whatever the case, we're all one now - and any football on TV is a good thing.

With that in mind, here's how to watch Euro 96 Relived on ITV and stream every classic match online for free - starting with England vs Switzerland.

How to watch Euro 96 Relived online from abroad

While anyone in the UK will find it easy to watch Euro 96 Relived on ITV this May, footy fans elsewhere in the world may struggle to tune in because of geo-blocking.

If this is the case, anyone from the UK who's currently abroad and holds a valid TV license in Blighty could consider using a VPN. This nifty bit of software changes your IP address so that you can access all the content and services you already pay for back home - but from anywhere in the world.
