The UEFA Euro 2016 will take place in France from June 10 to July 10, 2016. 

According to beIN MEDIA GROUP Deputy CEO, Yousef Al-Obaidly, this agreement demonstrates Es’hailSat's and beIN's ability to stay ahead of the competition by bringing the best-in-class TV experience to subscribers. Es’hailSat’s President & CEO, Ali Ahmed Al Kuwari, added that in addition to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the English Premiere League, and a number of tennis and basketball tournaments, his company is witnessing a growing number of broadcasters relying on Es'haiSat to broadcast sports content to the MENA region.
