Wales’s UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifying campaign begins in March 2019, with each of the ten games to be shown live in the Welsh language on the free-to-air national channel.
S4C Director of Content, Amanda Rees said,
“This is excellent news for S4C viewers and Welsh football fans. We all remember the last EURO competition in 2016 and the joy and pleasure that bought to everyone in Wales. S4C were privileged to be able to bring that experience to our viewers. I hope the road to 2020 will be as exciting and successful both on the field and on the screen.”
Coverage will be presented by the experienced team at S4C’s flagship football series Sgorio. For the first game, against the Republic of Ireland, a trio of former internationals John Hartson, Owain Tudur Jones and Malcolm Allen will join Dylan Ebenezer to present the action from the Cardiff City Stadium.
Three families of four will be cooking live against the clock attempting to prepare a three-course meal for experienced judges. Up for grabs is a chance to win a spectacular holiday to Barcelona.
