The Euro 2020 round of 16 saw the shock exits of both France and the Netherlands while Switzerland and Spain both progressed to the quarter-finals. Indeed, Switzerland vs Spain is scheduled to kick off on Friday, July 2, at 5 PM BST (6 PM CEST). The game will take place at Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russia. In this post, we’ll explain how and where you can watch the match live online even if you happen to be traveling abroad during Euro 2020.
While unlicensed streams of high-profile international matches are common, we’re only recommending official sources for watching Switzerland vs Spain. Unauthorized streams tend to be low-quality with excessive lag. There’s also the risk they’ll be taken offline for violating copyright. With so many official sources for watching Euro 2020 (some of which are free), there’s just no need to waste time and energy on unreliable, unofficial streams.
The majority of platforms showing Switzerland vs Spain are region-locked. This means that a VPN is required to continue watching via your usual home streaming service from abroad.
How to watch Switzerland vs Spain live online with a VPN
Not sure how a VPN works? It’s actually quite simple. Connecting to a server ensures your data is encrypted. You’re also provided with a new, temporary IP address. With this, you can lead websites and services into thinking you’re located within their country. As a result, you should be able to access geo-blocked content regardless of where you actually are!
Here’s how to live stream Switzerland vs Spain from anywhere:
- Sign up with a VPN service. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are also excellent options for live sports streaming.
- Now you’ll be able to download and install the VPN app that’s compatible with your streaming device.
- Open the VPN app and connect to a server in the country of the streaming platform on which you’d like to watch Switzerland vs Spain.
- Go to the website or app of the streaming service and select a live stream. Content should be unblocked regardless of your location.
- If it still doesn’t work, try clearing your browser’s cookies before refreshing your browser. You could also try connecting to another server.
Due to the fact that the Switzerland vs Spain match will air live, it’s a good idea to test your VPN with your chosen streaming platform before matchday. In all likelihood, everything will work perfectly. However, if it doesn’t, your VPN’s customer support may be able to help.
