Berne, 14 November 2007
Around 150 million viewers watched every match on television during the last UEFA European Football Championship in Portugal - and there is no reason to expect a drop in numbers for 2008. To enable the televised pictures to be broadcast worldwide, Swisscom Broadcast will guarantee transmission of the pictures from the UEFA EURO 2008 stadia in Switzerland and Austria to UEFA's International Broadcast Centre in Vienna. Swisscom and UEFA have already signed the contract.
As the official telecommunications equipment supplier to UEFA EURO 2008TM, Swisscom will provide the voice and data networks at the match venues and be responsible for their availability. Swisscom will be represented as one of four national supporters in the official fan zones in Switzerland.
