On Monday, Sept 9 and Tuesday Sept 10, our US based viewers can see The Match on NBCN and NBC Sports Gold, 9AM-12 noon Eastern time. You can watch the historic event by streaming (well, except if you are in South America, or New Zealand).

At least 16 international broadcasters will be televising the inaugural edition of The Match Europe v USA in Minsk, Belarus on 9-10 September.

According to the latest broadcasting intentions provided by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), international broadcasters will be showing approximately 108 hours combined of live or recorded coverage of The Match which features three reigning Olympic champions, six reigning world champions and 15 reigning European champions on Team Europe.

There will also be live streaming of both days of competition* through the All-Athletics platform which will be provided by European Athletics' International Partner Eurovision Sport.

The stream will be accompanied by expert English-language commentary and there will also be dedicated streams for each field event across the two days of competition complemented by video on demand.

The Match will air live each day in the United States from 12:00-3:00pm ET concurrently on NBCSN and NBC Sports Gold.

There will also be extensive coverage of The Match on the European Athletics website as well as across European Athletics' Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube accounts.

*Please note the stream will be geo-blocked in New Zealand and Latin America
