While the EURO 2020 will be a great celebration for all of Europe, there is also a personal highlight to celebrate. After more than 10 years as a stadium announcer of the Austrian national team, I am now for the first time able to accompany a major event on TV: as a presenter and commentator on OE24.TV!
A celebration for all of Europe
The EURO already celebrated an anniversary in 2020. The 16th staging of the European Championship, should have taken place 60 years after the premiere last year. And then came the global pandemic. In 1960, the first final round was lifted out of diapers with only 4 teams, and in 2020, the 60th anniversary was to be celebrated as a pan-European festival.
Here we goooooo!
With 1 year delay we finally start into the EURO! From June 11 to July 11, 24 countries from all over Europe will play for the throne in soccer! I am very happy that I can accompany this event with concentrated star power – the Austrian soccer celebrities will be present at OE24. The record goal scorer of the Austrian national team Toni Polster, the “Goleador” Hans Krankl, storm tank Andi Ogris and flank god Frenkie Schinkels will be there.
My football heart is already jumping with anticipation for the coming weeks, especially of course when Austria starts the tournament on Sunday, June 13. It will be an intense time for me… and I love it! Just check out OE24.TV or the livestream and with a bit of luck I’ll be on air right now.
What are you looking forward to at the EURO? Feel free to write me your anticipation in a comment!
