The championships kick off on Friday August 18th with the opening ceremony followed by the opening match at 19:30, featuring hosts Germany and group A rivals Italy.

All matches from the competition will be streamed live on internet, with two streams available – one with audiodescription in English and the other with AD in German*.

A minimum of five cameras will be deployed at the venue to bring all the action to blind football fans worldwide, including exclusive on-pitch interviews and post-match reactions from the mixed zone.
