The EUROs are upon us! Huzzah! Here at FTW we don’t normally cover international football too in-depth. That’s what Bavarian Football Works is for. But when a major tournament like the World Cup or the EUROs roll around, we like to get in on the action at least a little bit. We won’t be doing day-in and day-out match coverage, but we at least thought we’d provide a place to act as a general discussion forum for the tournament.

Treat this article as an opportunity to discuss any an all developments or events regarding this week one of the EUROs. We’ll be keeping it pinned on the front page.

Match Thread Rules:

Absolutely no illegal streams. There are legal means listed for you to watch the game. Use those and don’t share any illegal streams in the comments.

Be critical, but not offensive. We’re all tolerant people; we all get frustrated at a bad call the ref makes or react to some foul that the opposing team makes. We encourage you to post your thoughts, just think them through before posting them. Keep things PG-13.

No abusing of other commentators or match officials. None whatsoever. Zero. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Verboten, Verboten, Verboten!! We’re all fans, bear that in mind.

Express yourself how you normally would. We allow for profanity (within reason), but any sexist, racist and/or homophobic comments and replies will result in immediate blocking and banning of future participation.
