Glastonbury Festival has announced important news for football fans, they're won't be any coverage of the Euro 2016 competition at this year's Festival, they have stated, "With this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament in France fast approaching, we have being asked about our plans for screening any matches during the Festival. With the kick-off times of the tournament potentially clashing with headline sets, the decision has been taken that no matches from the tournament will be shown at Glastonbury this year.
"We’d like to take this opportunity to wish the home nations all the best at Euro 2016, and we very much hope they will still be involved in the tournament once the Festival is over for another year."
