Football – the version of the sport that doesn t involve wearing protective headgear or touching the ball with your hands – is in fashion this month.

Starting Friday evening local time, the 24 best European teams will be facing off against each other in France for a full month, at the UEFA competition.

DON T MISS: This might be the most exciting and unexpected Apple announcement at WWDC 2016

From June 10th to July 10th, 51 games will be needed to establish the new champions, with Spain expected to try to defend the title it won four years ago.

Cord-cutters still have to pay

Of course, there are ways to watch all of the games online, Cut Cable Today explains, without having to pay for cable just for this particular tournament.

That way, you can pretend you re in the UK and load the games using the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps.

As PC Advisor explains, both BBC and ITV will broadcast the matches.

It's not just the Queen's 90th birthday this weekend.

More meaningfully, the 2016 UEFA European Championship kicks off in France and it couldn't be easier to follow all the action as England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland take on Europe's best.

Whoever you're supporting during the Euros, you won't want to miss a second of the action – and you don't have to.

The BBC and ITV have let the UK down

The BBC and ITV share coverage rights for Euro 2016 S4C has TV rights in Wales , meaning you're actually getting your money's worth out of your annual license fee for once.

To tune in to the matches online, all you need to do is know which channel is airing the fixture, and then navigate to the relevant website – that's ITV Hub for the ITV matches, and iPlayer for the Beeb's slice of the pork pie.

Do not adjust your screen, there really are apps Windows Phone too.

All the big match action including, England's first game against Russia and Wales taking on Slovakia, are being shown on the BBC and ITV.

If you're not at home you can also watch every game on your smartphone via the BBC and ITV on demand apps.

TEAM: Watching your team get through to the final could eat through 5GB of data MATCH: Wales take on Slovakia in their first game GK: Fraser Forster Southampton - 6.75

Mark Lee, Geek Squad agent, said: "By our reckoning 5101 megabytes of data should be enough to see you through to the end of the tournament.

"We ll play it safe though so let s call it 6GB to follow a team all the way to the final, which allows for the possibility of extra time and penalties in every knockout game.

If you want to really play it safe then speak with your network to double check your data allowance, that way you can increase it if you need to.

So, if you want to tune into football on your phone just make sure you have plenty of data or can find some free Wi-Fi.

I ve been following the Iceland football/soccer team even before it amazed fans at the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament, which is currently underway in France.

But in recent years the country invested heavily in football talent, and it all paid off soon enough.

Iceland almost managed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup tournament, and then secured the ticket to Euro 2016, its first appearance at a major football tournament.

Even so, many ignored Iceland ahead of the tournament, thinking it would be easy prey at Euro 2016.

But the team surprised everyone from the first game in group F, thanks to both its amazing gameplay as well as its great fans, who dominated stadiums with their thunderous Viking clap.

The better Iceland did in the tournament, the more clap videos we got to see on YouTube and social media, and the more we loved this underdog.

You can, of course, watch all the games live on the BBC and ITV for free in the UK and on ESPN and others in the USA check here for international broadcasters , but if you're after something beyond the usual TV punditry, it's to pod-land you must go.

The catalyst for live TV coverage of Serie A was Gazza's transfer to Rome's Lazio, but the highlight was the café-based banter from presenter James Richardson.

He's still doing it on BT Sport's Sunday Night Football Show, but his best work is the decade-old Guardian Football Weekly podcast for The Guardian newspaper, which will transform into Euro 2016 Football Daily for the duration of the tournament.

Anyone from veteran commentator John Motson to Danny Mills and the easily riled Steve Claridge can feature.

The Total Soccer Show

Much of the best and least cliché-riddled analysis of British and European football comes from other continents, and that's certainly true for this independent podcast.

Though the shouted contributions of Kartik Krishnaiyer can be a little grating, the serious, considered opinions of UK football journalist Kristan Heneage of ITV News and Yahoo UK are the highlight.
