watch Sweden vs Ukraine live online

On June 29, thousands of Swedish and Ukrainian fans will pour into Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland to see if their favorite squad will progress to the quarter-finals or go home empty-handed. The match will begin at 9 PM CEST (8 PM BST / 3 PM EST / 12 PM PST) and could last until 11 PM if neither side scores. Read on to find out how to live stream the Sweden vs Ukraine match, wherever you are in the world.

The European Championship is one of soccer’s biggest events after the World Cup. As such, preventing unlicensed streams is almost impossible. However, despite their prevalence, we don’t recommend using them. They often provide a worse viewing experience, partly because of their low video quality, and partly because of their tendency to be taken offline at inopportune moments. There are many ways to stream Sweden vs Ukraine online for free legitimately, and we’ll cover some of these below.

Euro 2020 matches are mostly shown on region-locked streaming services. If you’re traveling outside of your home country at the moment, you’ll likely need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to watch on the same services you would back home. 

How to live stream Sweden vs Ukraine online from abroad

VPNs are mostly used to keep your online activities hidden from snoopers, but they also have the ability to make it look like you’re browsing the web from a different location. This is especially useful for accessing geo-blocked services abroad, and will allow you to watch Euro 2020 games online from anywhere.

Here’s how to stream Sweden vs Ukraine online from anywhere:

  1. Begin by deciding which VPN provider you’d like to use. We recommend NordVPN but Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two fantastic alternatives that are great for streaming.
  2. Download and install the VPN app. Most services let you have five or so connections at once, so feel free to install it on any device you use for streaming.
  3. Now, log in and connect to a server in the required location. You’d use an American server to watch ESPN, for instance, or a British server to unblock BBC iPlayer abroad.
  4. All that remains is to try watching something. You should find that the video loads right away but if not, we’d recommend clearing your cache and cookies before trying again.

The Sweden vs Ukraine match will air live. For this reason, it’s a good idea to take a few minutes and make sure your VPN works with your preferred streaming platform ahead of time. Many VPNs offer 24/7 live chat, so even if you find an issue, it shouldn’t take long to resolve.


NordVPN is offering a fully-featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use our  top VPN for streaming Euro 2020 without any restrictions for a monthgreat if you want to support your favorite team while vacationing abroad.

There are no hidden termsjust contact support 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 Sweden vs Ukraine on US TV

US flag - flag of the USA

The vast majority of Euro 2020 matches (including this one) will be broadcast on ESPN, with only a single game left to air exclusively on ABC. Already an ESPN subscriber? Great — just sign into the website or app to start watching online right away.

Don’t worry if you don’t have cable, though. It’s also possible to sign into ESPN with FuboTV, YouTube TV, and Hulu with Live TV. We’d recommend using Sling TV instead, simply because it costs around half as much, at $34.99 USD per month. All of these platforms include a free trial, though, which means you can try them all out for yourself.

You’ll normally have to be in the US to use these services. That said, a VPN can help you unblock them during your travels abroad. NordVPN includes a 30-day money-back guarantee, giving you the option to try it completely risk-free. If it doesn’t impress you, simply cancel during the first 30 days to claim a full refund, no questions asked.

Where else can I stream Sweden vs Ukraine live online?

Naturally, there’s strong international interest in this tournament. With over 200 broadcast partners around the world, you shouldn’t have any issues finding a way to live stream Euro 2020 abroad. Here’s a quick guide to watching Sweden vs Ukraine wherever you are:


UK flag Union Jack

Both matches scheduled for June 29 will be available on BBC iPlayer. This is great news, for a couple of reasons: first, this service is completely free to use, provided you have a TV license. Second, it means that on-demand replays will be made available very soon after each game ends. In other words, you don’t have to worry if you’re working or have other plans on the day.

To watch via BBC iPlayer, you’ll have to be in the UK or using a British VPN server. You’ll also have to create a free account beforehand.



If you’d like to watch this match with French commentary, you can simply tune in using TVA’s website. This is entirely free, and there’s no need to register first, plus there’s full subtitle support.

For English coverage, your only option is TSN. Existing cable subscribers can stream the entire tournament at no added cost, but if you don’t have cable, you’ll need a digital pass. There are a couple of options for these: you can either buy a one-day pass for $7.99 CAD or a month-long pass for $19.99. Unfortunately, neither comes with any kind of free trial.

These platforms are both geo-restricted, which means you’ll need a VPN to watch from outside of Canada.



The only network with rights to show Euro 2020 matches in Australia is Optus Sport. Already receive this in your cable TV subscription? If so, you can simply log into the website and stream Sweden vs Ukraine online without paying any extra. However, you also have the option of watching without cable by purchasing a digital pass for $14.99 AUD per month.

Optus Sport is geo-blocked and a VPN is necessary to watch it from outside of Australia.


Swedish flag

Sweden vs Ukraine will be available on TV4 Play, a free-to-watch streaming service. You should note that you’ll have to register before streaming, although this is easy and only takes a moment. The evening’s other fixture, England vs Germany, will be on SVT Play, which also lets you watch for free.

These platforms will normally show an error if you try to use them outside of Sweden. With the right VPN, though, accessing them is child’s play.


Ukrainian Flag

Telekanal Ukraina has the rights to show every Euro 2020 match, including this one. Soccer fans can follow all of the action live on the network’s free streaming service, Kanalukraina. No account is required to watch, although you will have to be in Ukraine or browsing with a Ukrainian IP address.

Other locations

If we didn’t mention your current location above, try not to panic. There are local sources in dozens of countries, so it shouldn’t be too hard to stream Sweden vs Ukraine where you are. A good starting point for your search is UEFA’s broadcast partner list.

However, this doesn’t mention any sub-licensing deals that the official partners might have made. We’d recommend searching for a few of your country’s most popular streaming services and seeing if they have any Euro 2020 coverage. This is usually fairly obvious, since the rights to show these matches are highly sought-after.

Can Sweden beat Ukraine?

This is actually quite a difficult match to call! On one hand, Sweden is one of the strongest defensive teams we’ve seen all tournament and has shown that it’s capable of swiftly punishing any backline that pushes forward that little bit too far. However, Ukraine has put in spectacular showings against heavy-hitters like the Netherlands and the oft-underestimated North Macedonia. Ultimately, it’s all going to come down to whether the Ukrainian side can get forward consistently without opening themselves up to a devastating Swedish counterattack.

Which players are taking part in this match?

Neither country has released its starting lineup for this game just yet. However, participating nations were only allowed to bring 26 players each, so managers are drawing from a limited pool of players. Here are the full Swedish and Ukrainian Euro 2020 squads:
