watch France vs Germany euro 2020

Fans are guaranteed a memorable match any time France and Germany clash, so we’d advise you to clear your schedule on June 15. Although France has won 14 of the pair’s 31 prior matches, this fixture will take place on Germany’s home turf, at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Kick-off is scheduled for 9 PM CEST (8PM BST / 3 PM EST / 12 PM PST) and with our help, you’ll be able to live stream the entire France vs Germany match from anywhere in the world.

This year’s European Championship (also known as Euro 2020) is a huge event. As such, unauthorized streams are near-inevitable. Despite this, we still recommend you watch via official sources. These guarantee the highest-possible video quality, and unlike their unlicensed counterparts, can’t be taken down partway through for copyright violation. Many networks will let you watch France vs Germany online for free anyway, so there’s no need for shady streams.

Most of the streaming services showing the France vs Germany game are region-locked. This means that if you’re traveling abroad and looking to watch on the same platforms you would back home, you’ll need a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

How to watch the France vs Germany match from abroad

VPNs are primarily privacy tools, but they can also change your IP address, making it look like you’re browsing from a different location. This helps you access geo-restricted streaming services while you travel.

Here’s how to live stream France vs Germany online from anywhere:

  1. Start by choosing a suitable VPN provider. We recommend using NordVPN, although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two versatile, high-performance alternatives.
  2. Next, download and install the VPN app onto any device you use for streaming. Usually, you’ll be allowed five or so connections at once, although this varies between VPNs.
  3. Open the VPN app, log in, and connect to a server in your home country. From a streaming service’s perspective, there’s no difference between you and a user who’s actually in the country.
  4. All that remains is to try watching something on your chosen streaming service. Videos should load with no problems, but if not, clearing your cookies and cache often helps. If problems persist, we recommend contacting your VPN’s customer support team directly.

Like every other Euro 2020 match, France vs Germany will be shown live. That’s why it’s important to spend a few minutes checking if your VPN works with your chosen streaming platform ahead of time. After all, there’s nothing worse than last-minute technical trouble. Many major providers offer 24/7 live chat-based support, so you can get help in minutes.


NordVPN offers a fully-featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. This means that you can use our #1 VPN for streaming Euro 2020 fixtures without any restrictions for a full month. This is perfect for anyone hoping to support their favorite team while traveling abroad. 

There are no hidden termsjust let customer support know within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

How to watch France vs Germany on US TV

US flag

ESPN is showing the vast majority of Euro 2020 matches in the US. In total, it will air 46 of the tournament’s 51 fixtures, including France vs Germany and Hungary vs Portugal on June 15. The good news is that you can watch online at no added cost, provided your cable TV plan already includes this channel.

Looking to watch France vs Germany online without cable? Don’t worry, you have plenty of options. FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and  Sling TV all carry ESPN, and some even let you stream ABC too, in case you’d like to watch the handful of exclusive matches that this network has. Most of these services include a free trial, but afterward, you’ll have to pay around $64.99 USD per month (or $34.99 for Sling TV).

No matter which streaming platform you use, due to regional restrictions, you’ll need a VPN to watch from outside of the US. Still don’t have one? NordVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to try it out completely risk-free. If you’re in any way unsatisfied, just cancel for a full refund, no questions asked.

Where else can I stream France vs Germany online?

Naturally, there’s strong international interest in this tournament. Euro 2020 is so popular, in fact, that it’ll be broadcast by more than 200 networks worldwide. Here’s a quick guide to streaming the France vs Germany game wherever you are in the world:


UK flag Union Jack

France vs Germany will air exclusively on ITV, which means fans can stream all of the action, free-of-charge, using ITV Hub. You will have to create an account beforehand, but this just requires you to enter a British postcode (any will do). Note that viewers in Scotland will have to use the STV Player instead — this is a separate website, with a separate user account but is otherwise functionally the same as ITV Hub.

ITV Hub and STV Player are both geo-restricted. In other words, you’ll need a VPN to access them while traveling outside of the UK.


Canadian Flag

Canadians can watch the France vs Germany match in English on TSN, or in French on TVA. French speakers actually get a better deal here, since TVA is completely free to watch, whereas you can only stream TSN for free if it’s included in your cable TV package. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay $7.99 CAD per day or $19.99 per month for an online pass.

The services above are only usually available in Canada. However, you can access them from anywhere by connecting to a Canadian VPN server.



Optus Sport has exclusive Euro 2020 broadcasting rights, and is the only way to watch France vs Germany in Australia. If you’re already a customer, you can just sign into the website and watch live online at no added cost. Don’t worry if not, though: this service only costs $14.99 AUD per month, or $29.99 for three months. Sadly, there’s no free trial any more.

If you’re anywhere other than Australia, you’ll need a VPN to use Optus Sport.


French Flag

Because the French national squad are playing, this match will be shown free of charge. M6 and TF1 are sharing free-to-air coverage, with M6 broadcasting France vs Germany specifically. Note that you will have to register before you can watch anything. Luckily, this is very straightforward and doesn’t require you to enter any kind of payment information.

M6 is geo-blocked, meaning it’s usually inaccessible outside of France. With the right VPN, though, you can stream it from anywhere.


German Flag

Every Euro 2020 game is available for free in Germany. ZDF is showing the France vs Germany match, but otherwise, coverage is near-evenly split with ARD. There’s no need to create an account for either service; just show up at kickoff time and start streaming.

ZDF and ARD are geo-restricted. This means that you’ll have to use a VPN to access them while visiting other countries.

Other locations

If we didn’t cover your location above, try not to panic. As we mentioned, this tournament is being shown in dozens of countries, so there’s a strong chance you’ll be able to watch, wherever you are. We’d recommend starting with UEFA’s list of Euro 2020 broadcasters. If at first it seems you can’t watch online, we’d encourage you to do a little digging since this list doesn’t account for sub-licensing deals. For instance, Sky is the main broadcaster in Italy, but you can also watch the tournament on Now TV, which isn’t mentioned in the official list.

Euro 2020: France vs Germany predictions

France are the favorite to win this match, largely due to Didier Deschamps’ masterful management and an experienced squad that has a history of producing results. Les Bleus also haven’t lost a game since November 2020.

In contrast, the German squad suffered a humiliating 6-0 defeat at the hands of Spain that month, and recently lost 2-1 to North Macedonia, a team that has never before qualified for the European Championship. It’s not like there’s no chance of a German win, though; after all, the squad features plenty of heavy-hitters and an exceptionally strong defensive line.
