Being the largest and most widely played sport in the world, soccer, or football, every championship of football has been given such tremendous attention that it can not be denied as to any less than a world cup even if it is on a continental level, like the one we will talk about today, the UEFA Euro.
Since its beginning in the year 1960, UEFA Euro has risen a lot in its status and fame. 24 Teams from 24 different countries of Europe competing for one title of the best European team, that surely brings a lot of adrenaline to football enthusiasts. Now that it is held only once every four years, that makes it even more exciting for players as well as the audience.
But that aside, one more really important reason why this year is so much more important for everyone else is because of the pandemic. Since it took the world by storm at the beginning of last year, that is around the February-march of 2020, all the countries are in a strict lockdown.

This was the last of some of the Online streaming subscriptions that people can use for watching the UEFA Euro 2020 matches, be it online or on their televisions via cable. Now some things still need to be known. As follows.
Why Euro 2020 in 2021?
One question that is bothering us all, is why is it called Euro 2020 and not Euro 2021 since we are here right now playing and watching it in 2021, right?
Well, the answer to that is, since Euro 2020 was originally supposed to be held in 2020 only, that is, the previous year, it was named 2020, but because of the CoronaVirus pandemic, it was postponed. Now that it has been re-initiated, the UEFA organizing committee has decided that it would be called Euro 2020 only instead of 2021.
What is VPN?
You might have noticed that we have talked about VPN a few times, so what is it?
VPN, or, Virtual Private Network is a method by which we can create a path for our internet to be accessed from a different point before reaching the destination. In much clearer words, we can be sitting in the United States of America but with a VPN, we can surf on the internet as if we are using the computer/mobile phone devices from China, or New Zealand, or any other part of the world.
Now how does the VPN work? VPN settings can be enabled via the network and ethernet settings of our devices, but that can be a little tricky. To overcome that, we have a much simpler method, by simply using VPN softwares.
VPN applications or softwares are nowadays very much common since with just one click they can do what could take quite a while to process. That is, enabling and setting a secure connection via a secure server.
How do VPN applications work? VPN providers have their servers all across the globe, and when we select one of those servers via their app’s user interface, we connect our device to that server.
For example, while sitting in Russia, we connect to England’s servers and then access the BBC websites, the website will not block us even if we are from Russia, since it interprets us to be coming from the server in England which our VPN helped us to do.
So knowing all about VPN, let us find some good ones to use. The most used and renowned VPN softwares are these –
Now since everything about getting there is known, let us find more about when to get there. That means when are our matches being played and by which teams.
