Broadcaster secured rights to all matches
The Euro 2016 qualifiers will be broadcast on Abu Dhabi Sports over the next two years in the Middle East region.
The Abu Dhabi broadcaster, which lost the rights to the English Premier League to rival broadcaster beIN Sports two years ago, secured the exclusive rights to broadcast all of the qualifying matches.
Starting today (Sunday), the broadcaster will provide matches with both English and Arabic commentary, with the games featuring Germany vs Scotland, England vs Switzerland, and The Netherlands vs Czech Republic among the highlights of the 24 matches due to be played this week.
Mohammad Ebrahim Al Mahmoud, Chairman and Managing Director of Abu Dhabi Media, said: “Winning the rights to broadcast the 2016 Uefa European Championship Qualifiers in the Middle East was a top priority because of the excitement it would bring to our football fans.
“We use the latest technology and the best expertise to deliver the highest standards of coverage to our viewers.”
Shame the Switzerland vs. England game only had commentary in English. Other matches had English audio so I can't understand why.
