With one week to go before kick-off of the UEFA Euro 2012 championship in Poland and the Ukraine, capacity on five Eutelsat satellites has been booked by broadcasters around the world to ensure full coverage and commentary of one of soccer’s top international competitions.

Al Jazeera Sports has booked two extra transponders on Eutelsat 3C for the duration of the event to deliver signals to its studios in Europe and the Middle East

The reportedly high-power reach of Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Indian Ocean islands and Central Asia delivered by the Eutelsat 3A, 3C, 10A, 16A and 33A satellites, forms part of the infrastructure put in place by rights holders to enable viewers to watch the 31 matches in eight stadiums from June 8 to July 1.

Al Jazeera Sports has booked two extra transponders on Eutelsat 3C for the duration of the event to deliver signals to its studios in Europe and the Middle East.

Reportedly working closely with broadcasters and service providers, Eutelsat’s booking centre will continue to coordinate allocation of capacity for minimum periods of 15 minutes in advance and throughout the championship.
