Euro 2020 has been pushed back, the Olympics are delayed, and you can't get your hands on baked beans for love nor money; the summer ahead is looking pretty bleak. 


Football has been suspended since the beginning of March due to the coronavirus, and fans could be waiting months to get their next fix of the beautiful game.


Fortunately, ITV have popped up with a bit of good news for football fans, as they've done a bit if digging, and have plucked out the tapes from Euro 96.

From May, the online platform ITV Hub will air all 31 games from one of the most iconic football tournaments in recent history, allowing football fans to bathe in nostalgia and relive the magical summer of 1996.


ITV4 will also broadcast the five games in the tournament featuring England, and the final between Germany and the Czech Republic.


​Euro 96 is the Three Lions' best showing at a European Championships, with the squad boasting the likes of Paul Gascoigne, Tony Adams, Paul Ince and the famous strike force of Alan Shearer and Teddy Sheringham. 

The summer was soundtracked by Baddiel, Skinner and The Lightning Seeds' hit football anthem Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home). 


From Gazza's stunning goal and dentist chair celebration against Scotland, to the emphatic victory over the Netherlands, Euro 96 is home to a selection of English football's finest moments.


In a statement on the ​ITV websitePaul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, said: “Nothing brings the country together like Euro fever, and with this year’s tournament postponed to 2021, we’re giving our audience a chance to relive one of the all-time great sporting events, Euro ’96. 


"Thanks to the ITV Hub and ITV4, there’ll be no shortage of vintage football classics for fans to indulge in over the next few months.”
