The European Football Championship has passed the halfway point, and the playoff matches are ahead. A heated debate has broken out in Russia about whether the tournament should be shown on television. Well-known sports officials, deputies and TV presenters have expressed different points of view. Some believe that the population should not be deprived of broadcasts, while others call the showing of Euro 2024 a betrayal. NEWS.ru has collected the most interesting opinions on this topic.

Vyacheslav Fetisov: “I consider the showing of Euro 2024 a betrayal”

“I don’t even watch any international competitions. Moreover, I consider it a betrayal to show the Ice Hockey World Championship and the European Football Championship today. I don’t understand why we discuss these broadcasts in such detail in the studios?! What the hell do you hope for, that if you show these matches, you will be returned to this site?” two-time Olympic hockey champion and State Duma deputy Vyacheslav Fetisov told Regnum.

Nikolay Valuev: “I agree with Fetisov”

“I agree with Fetisov. We will soon come to an understanding of this. State channels should not show this – then there will be no one left who wants to call our athletes cowards,” RB Sport quotes former world heavyweight boxing champion and deputy Nikolai Valuev as saying.

Egor Titov: “You have a remote control, you can switch it”

“When we showed the World Hockey Championship, everyone was silent. They showed the BRICS games, and there were a lot of questions about that too. I have great respect for Vyacheslav Aleksandrovich, but here it’s everyone’s choice – to watch or not. You have a remote control, and you can always change the channel,” former Spartak player Yegor Titov told SE.

Elena Vyalbe: “It’s not a betrayal, but I feel offended”

“I don’t watch Euro 2024. And not because I don’t have time, but simply. But if the Russian team were playing, then of course I would follow. I have always supported our football players at the World and European Championships. As for the broadcast of the Euro on television, this is wrong. It is very strange for me. There is no betrayal in this. But I am offended. I understand that all the football players and ardent fans follow the championship. But this can be found on the Internet. The state channel could broadcast Russian competitions. After all, our sport needs to be popularized. Everyone is outraged that the BRICS games were shown very little,” Sport-Express quotes the president of the Russian Cross-Country Skiing Federation Elena Vyalbe as saying.

Tatyana Tarasova: “Let our people watch world football”

“I don’t agree with Fetisov. Why can’t we broadcast the Euro? We say that they play football so badly in Russia. Then let people watch the World Cup. What’s the matter? Why should the entire country be punished? What does this have to do with the people who love football and hockey? Why can’t people watch competitions in their free time?” Honored USSR figure skating coach Tatyana Tarasova told SE.

Roman Teryushkov: “This is open aiding of Russia’s enemies”

“By purchasing the rights to broadcast European competitions, where Russians and Belarusians were not allowed to participate for political reasons, Russian TV channels are in fact supporting the economy of these transnational companies, supporting and popularizing both the competitions themselves and discriminatory actions against Russia. I am sure that the attention of the Russian president to this open complicity with opponents, carried out by TV channels in the context of an armed confrontation with the NATO bloc for the state budget or at the expense of various subsidies, injections of state corporations, is only a matter of time,” said State Duma deputy Roman Teryushkov.
