Italy vs Wales will kick off on Sunday, June 20, at 5 PM BST (6 PM CEST). This is the final group stage game for each team. Italy have already qualified for the knockout stage while a draw for Wales versus Italy would guarantee their progression. It may be that you’re going on vacation and are worried about missing out. However, we have some good news! You can watch Italy vs Wales live online from abroad with the help of a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
There are a lot of unlicensed streams for Euro 2020 matches. However, we’ll only be recommending official sources for watching Italy vs Wales. The reason for this is that unauthorized streams tend to be low quality and run the risk of being taken offline for copyright infringement. Furthermore, there are many ways for you to watch Italy vs Wales live online via official sources. Some of these are even available for free.
Italy vs Wales will mainly be available for streaming on region-locked platforms. As such, a VPN is required to continue watching your usual home streaming service from abroad.
How to watch Italy vs Wales live online with a VPN
With a VPN, your data is encrypted, allowing you to browse securely and anonymously. Further, connecting to a VPN server gives you a new IP address so it looks like you’re browsing from another location. This means you can use a VPN to unblock geo-blocked websites and their content.
Here’s how to live stream Italy vs Wales using a VPN:
- First off, you’ll need to sign up with a VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are affordable, high-quality alternatives.
- The next step is to find the appropriate VPN app for your streaming device before downloading and installing it. This shouldn’t take more than a minute.
- Open the VPN app (or browser extension) and connect to a server in your preferred location. For example, a server in the UK for unblocking ITV Hub from abroad.
- Go to the platform on which you plan to stream Italy vs Wales. You may need to sign in or sign up for an account. Content should now be unblocked in your location.
- If it’s still blocked, you may need to clear your browser’s cookies before reloading your browser. Another option is to try connecting to another server.
The Euro 2020 fixture between Italy and Wales will air live. It’s for this reason that we recommend you test your VPN with your chosen platform well before the match kicks off. That way, you’ll have sufficient time to get in touch with your VPN’s customer support should you happen to encounter any issues.

How to watch Italy vs Wales (Euro 2020) on UK TV
Soccer fans from the UK can watch Italy vs Wales (and indeed all of the Euro 2020 matches) for free. While most matches are broadcast by the BBC, Italy vs Wales will be shown by ITV. To watch it online, you’ll need to access ITV Hub (or STV Player if you’re in Scotland). You’ll need an account to watch content live and on-demand. This means providing your name, email address, date of birth, and a UK postcode (any will do).
Once signed up to ITV Hub, you’ll be able to watch Italy vs Wales live online. However, if you’re traveling abroad (outside the UK), you’ll need to use a VPN due to geographic restrictions. This means connecting to a server in the UK and getting a UK IP address. You can do this with NordVPN which even comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This gives you plenty of time to try it out for yourself, risk-free.

Of course, unless you already have a subscription with one of the aforementioned services, this works out a lot more expensive. However, it’s worth knowing that some offer free trials for new customers.
All of the US streaming options listed are region-locked so a US IP address is required to watch them from anywhere in the world.
In Australia, Optus Sport holds the rights to Euro 2020 and is showing every game of the tournament. Subscribers can sign in via the app or website and watch the match live online.
