The match debate with new and interesting information and commentaries promises to bring viewers memorable moments watching each EURO 2020 match.

In addition, with the aim of creating an exciting summer, Vietnam Television is expected to produce and broadcast highlight and behind-the-scenes programs.

According to journalist Phan Ngoc Tien, Head of the Sports Programme Production Department, immediately after owning the media rights and becoming the official broadcaster of the UEFA Euro 2020 in Vietnam, Vietnam Television is preparing specific plans for the production and communication on the championship.

However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, many ideas and plans for program for production have been changed to adapt to the epidemic situation.

"EURO 2020 is really special as it has to be delayed for the first time one year due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. And this is also a very special EURO for the producers of VTV sports programmes. Many ideas and plans for TV program production have not been implemented so far and many have to be adjusted. However, in any case, we are ready to enter the EURO 2020 campaign with the programs that promise to hook the audience. Some ideas would not be deployed to ensure safety and prevent infection for crews, guests, as well as reporters of Vietnam Television.

To comply with pandemic prevention rules, only programs which do not require large participation like EURO Diary, EURO Panorama, EURO Rap, Debates before - between - after matches, Exciting EURO, EURO Moments, With EURO Number will be produced, said journalist Phan Ngoc Tien.

On the subject of media and broadcasting rights exchange, a representative of the Editorial Board of Vietnam Television said: "VTV is willing to license the Euro 2020 media rights to other broadcasters according to UEFA regulations on the matters. Given the complicated and dangerous situation of the COVID-19 epidemic, Vietnam Television will not grant the rights to conduct the public screening of EURO 2020 matches."

According to the regulations, media outlets and broadcasters, under authorization of VTV, can use images and clips with a maximum duration of no more than 90 seconds/match for news delivery purposes and without commercials.
