Football on TV and live stream
Football fans are obsessed with the game and if they’re not playing themselves, they’re likely to watch football on TV, support local and international teams and enjoy hearty debates about players and managers. Football’s global coverage means football live stream games are very accessible for most people, especially during tournaments such as the World Cup and European Championships, which are on free-to-air channels in many countries.
The Premier League is by far the most famous football division on the planet, with millions of fans supporting one of its 20 teams and watching football on TV each week. English football has been marketed across the world and you can find fans of Premier League clubs in every country.
The Premier League title race is dominated by what is known as the Big Six, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham usually in contention for the championship. These teams drive the Premier League TV rights deals, where broadcasters pay billions to show the best matches from England. It is estimated 4.7 billion fans tune in to watch Premier League online and on TV each season — and that has proved a lucrative market for the EPL.
European football’s elite club competition has enjoyed various guises over the years but remains the one every player, manager and fan wants to win. The Champions League is considered the pinnacle of club football and just reaching the group stage can earn a club many millions of pounds.
The world tunes in on Champions League nights to watch sport on TV. There are more than 80 teams who complete through qualifying and the group stage, which means the Champions League TV schedule is always packed with fixtures.
A club can earn as much as €82m from competing in the Champions League, with much of that prize money coming from broadcasters who pay to show football on TV and live stream football. Once teams progress from the group stage they compete in knockout competition over three rounds before the final.
Real Madrid boast the most Champions League / European Cup honours with 13 titles as of 2019. Liverpool and Milan both have a rich history in the competition too. The glamour of the competition is always the main draw for neutral fans watching Champions League on TV and it’s these big clubs that bring eyes to the screens!
European football’s secondary club competition is no less dramatic for fans who watch Europa League live. The Europa League features many illustrious European clubs and offers an avenue into the Champions League for the winner. That carrot has driven competition in the Europa League, with Sevilla a club that is always desperate to push for the title.
The Europa League structure involves clubs who finish third in their Champions League group dropping into the last-32 knockout stage. This naturally causes a huge fluctuation in the Europa League winner odds but is great for creating tantalising football fixtures to watch on TV.
It is estimated over half the world’s population watch the World Cup on TV and online during the tournament — and it’s fair to say this festival of football captures the imagination of the planet. The World Cup features nations across the globe and in upcoming years will be expanded past 32 teams. Fans who live stream World Cup games and watch on TV often gather in bars, restaurants and outdoor screenings to celebrate and support their nations as one.
Some countries are more desperate to win the World Cup than others. England last won the tournament in 1966, while France have boasted two young generations who have dazzled World Cup TV viewers all the way to glory.
Brazil remain the iconic World Cup team, having won multiple trophies in this competition. Every four years the Samba Boys arrive under huge media attention and scrutiny — and legends of the game such as Pele, Cafu and Ronaldo have all dazzled in the competition.
Fans from around the world tune in to watch European football online in leagues such as Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga. These three leagues feature some of the best footballers on the planet, as well as the biggest clubs. Real Madrid and Barcelona battle it out for La Liga honours each season, while Bayern Munich reign over German football.
Meanwhile in Italy, Juventus have always been at the top of Serie A, although Milan, Inter, Napoli and Roma boast such committed fan bases that watching Italian football on TV is always entertaining!
Other top leagues include Portugal’s Primera Liga, the Eredivisie in Netherlands and France’s Ligue 1.
