Presented on June 10 at the Stade de France, with highlights by David Guetta, 600 performers, and the French patrol.
PARIS, June 10 2016- 200 million viewers will be glued to their TVs tonight for the opening ceremony of the UEFA EURO 2016. The ceremony is ode to France, revolving around one of the most significant symbols of the country: the carousel. Straight out of the playful universe of a Gondry film, the ceremony will kick off this prestigious tournament, featuring hundreds of extravagant characters and an incredible French garden, the symbol of the art of living.
In honor of the host country, the 14-minute long ceremony pulls its inspiration from one of the most celebratory symbols of France that you will discover tomorrow night. Everyone is invited: Liberty, Equality Fraternity!
