Watch Euro 2012 in NYC
Next week marks the beginning of Euro 2012. It’s a competition that, like the Olympics and World Cup, comes every four years. For many Europeans, it’s more emotional than either of those competitions, as its neighbor vs. neighbor.
A total of sixteen national teams square off in a month-long competition that is Euro 2012. For formalists, it is actually called the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship. The 16 teams are divided into 4 groups of 4 teams. Each team plays a match against the other three teams in its group, with games every four days.
Two Euro 2012 Group Matches will be played each day from June 8 through June 19, at noon and 2:45 pm NY time,
The quarter-finals shall be played each day from June 21 to June 24. The semi-finals will be played on June 27-28, with the final on July 1.
