The Euro 2020 Round of 16 is finally upon us! The very first game of the knockout stage is Wales vs Denmark which kicks off at the Johan Cruyff Arena, Amsterdam, on Saturday, June 26, at 5 PM BST (6 PM CEST). The winner will progress to the quarter-finals where they will play either the Netherlands or the Czech Republic. Euro 2020 broadcasts are subject to copyright and geographic restrictions but don’t worry: we’re about to explain how you can use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to watch Wales vs Denmark live online from anywhere.
Unlicensed streams of popular sporting events such as Euro 2020 are common. However, we’re only recommending official sources for watching Wales vs Denmark. The trouble with unauthorized streams is their low resolution and excessive lag. Besides, there’s no need to risk missing out on Wales vs Denmark due to a dodgy stream. That’s because there are many official sources for streaming the match, some of which are actually free.
Most platforms showing Wales vs Denmark are region-locked. This means that, if you’re traveling abroad, you’ll need to use a VPN to watch via your regular home streaming service.
How to watch Wales vs Denmark live online with a VPN
A VPN works by encrypting your data and allowing you to browse anonymously. In connecting to a server and changing your IP address, you can spoof your location and unblock your usual websites and services from home.
Here’s how to live stream Wales vs Denmark using a VPN:
- Sign up with a VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two highly competitive alternatives for live sport streaming.
- The next step is to download and install the correct VPN app for your streaming device. The above VPNs also offer the option of browser extensions.
- Open the VPN app before connecting to a server in the country of the platform you’d like to unblock. For example, a server in the UK for unblocking ITV Hub.
- Go to your preferred streaming platform and select a live stream. Content should now play in your location without interruption.
- In the event that content is still blocked, you should clear your browser’s cache and cookies. This ensures that your previous IP address and location are forgotten.
It will come as no surprise that Wales vs Denmark (and indeed all Euro 2020 matches) will air live. It’s for this reason that you should test your VPN with your chosen streaming service ahead of time. Having trouble? You can always contact your VPN’s customer support for further assistance.
