A look back at 7 magical moments from previous competitions
Ben Yedder: "It's in my DNA to never give up"
TF 1 and M 6 put the small dishes in the big ones.
While they share 23 matches of the competition - 12 for the One, 11 for the Six - the two channels have decided to offer a special device for the occasion.
The public will be able to discover the organization of TF 1 from Friday with the opening match, opposing Turkey to Italy, commented by Grégoire Margotton and Bixente Lizarazu.
“We have a system similar to that of other major events,” says Julien Millereux, the chain's sports director.
In the wake of the meeting, Denis Brogniart will succeed them for a "Mag of the Euro" on the plateau.
"With the winning team of 2018: Nathalie Iannetta, Youri Djorkaeff and Ludovic Giuly", indicates the boss.

"And on TF 1, we will also have Le journal de l'Euro around the 13 Hours and a daily version of Rendez-vous sport around the 20 Hours, with Marina Marck", adds Julien Millereux.
Former PSG player Sabrina Delannoy will form the other duo of commentators on the One alongside Julien Brun.

The main novelty of this Euro 2021 for the front page is the second duo of commentators, this time completely new.
Some of the matches will be analyzed by Sabrina Delannoy, already heard during the Women's World Cup.
But it will appear alongside a rookie, Julien Brun, already passed by Eurosport, Radio France, BeIN Sports and Téléfoot.

On M 6, the kick-off is scheduled for Saturday June 12, with Belgium-Russia.
"We will have an identical cover device for each match," explains Frédéric de Vincelles, the group's sports director.
We will first have a pre-match plateau, then the match and, finally, a post-match magazine, called 100% Euro.
Marie Portolano will host the post-match on M 6…
And it is now Marie Portolano, new to the channel, who will be in charge of this program.
She will be accompanied by several guests, including Alain Boghossian or Julien Cazarre, ex-Canal +.
"And former of 100% Foot with Vincent Couëffé", specifies Frédéric de Vincelles.
Newcomer to M 6, Marie Portolano will host the “100% Euro” program for the duration of the competition.

In addition, television broadcasting is accompanied by an innovation for Bouygues Telecom subscribers with three possible versions of each match. The viewer will be able to choose to do without comments or to have the choice of those of Xavier Domergue and Robert Pires or… celebrities, like Florian Gazan and Mathieu Madénian this Saturday. Football fans will also be entitled to special programming on 6play, the digital platform of M 6. "One hour before each match, they will be able to access the stadium to follow the warm-up and the atmosphere", explains the manager. .
For real Euro fans, those who do not want to miss a match, it will be necessary to connect to BeIN Sports.
From this Friday, the specialized media will devote a large part of its antennas to competition.
And, for good reason, the channel owns the rights to all 51 posters, as was the case in 2012 and 2016 as well as for the 2014 and 2018 worlds. “With BeIN Sports, you store your remote control in your drawer, s 'amuses Florent Houzot, the boss of the antenna.
All the meetings are on our channels, and that's what makes our subscribers happy.
… And Thomas Thouroude will speak on BeIN Sports
For the occasion, a very comprehensive system has been deployed. "With us, a match does not last 90 minutes but 3 hours," he says. Thus, each meeting will be preceded by an introduction of one hour in order to follow the arrival of the players and present the stakes. Then, after the match, it's time for the magazine “Club Euro” which will look back on the confrontation, with Vanessa Le Moigne, Florian Genton, Darren Tulett and even the newcomer Thomas Thouroude at the helm. Another magazine: "Euro Show", at the end of the day, in the wake of the last match. “It will last at least sixty minutes,” explains the boss. Darren Tulett will offer a catch-up session for today's games for those who could not follow them. "
Fans will also have access to several innovations, especially on BeIN Sports Max with the start of the match two hours before kick-off. "This will allow you to see the atmosphere, the arrival of the buses," says Florent Houzot. On these same channels will also be available the meeting without comments or with those of Bruce and Brak, "a little in Twitch mode". "The screen will be divided into several parts and subscribers will be able to provide their comments," enthuses the manager.
