The ministry was asked to coordinate with the Ministries of Public Security, and Culture, Sports and Tourism, and relevant agencies in overseeing the broadcasting by radio and television stations, and paid TV providers, making sure that it meets the conditions proposed by the ministry.

Television streaming application TV360 of the Viettel telecommunications company, a subsidiary of the Viettel Military Industries and Telecoms Group, holds the exclusive rights to broadcast the 2024 UEFA EURO finals across all television platforms and social media in the territory of Vietnam.

On June 13, the Vietnam Television (VTV) announced that it has secured the broadcasting rights for EURO 2024 after negotiations with Viettel.

Accordingly, the VTV will broadcast all the 51 matches of UEFA EURO 2024 live, along with commentary programs before, during, and after them.

In addition, it will organize special programs such as the opening ceremony, closing ceremony, and other engaging segments like "EURO 2024 Diary" and "EURO 2024 Colors."

Twenty-four teams, including hosts Germany, compete in the finals from June 15 to July 15, 2024.

UEFA EURO, the largest continental-level football tournament in the world, gathers the strongest national teams in Europe. Held every four years, it is highly anticipated by football fans, second only to the FIFA World Cup, and also a coveted asset for broadcasters worldwide.
