Since then it has been providing entertaining match analyses, insightful background reports and interviews themed around all of Continental’s major football sponsorship commitments. At international level these include not only UEFA EURO 2016™ but also Major League Soccer in the USA and Canada, as well as the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, which will be staged in the United Arab Emirates.
