Useful Euro 2024 resources for Irish football fans

Despite the Ireland national team failing to qualify for the Euros after finishing second-bottom in their group, fans of football will still be tuning in to watch the action unfold in Germany. Taking place between Friday 14 June and Sunday 14 July, it’s a competition that is guaranteed to serve up plenty of drama.

Irish fans can still get involved

In the same way fans of Ireland follow the Premier League and the Champions League, seeing how the likes of England get on will surely be on the agenda this summer. Irish fans can partake in some fantasy football action, there is always news to follow, while betting on the EUROs is another option, with the likes of Spain being priced at an enticing 8/1 to triumph in Germany.

Although assessing the best fantasy picks and looking at the latest football odds serves up plenty of enjoyment, chances of success are lessened somewhat if Irish fans aren’t making the most of the very best Euro 2024 resources. From podcasts to YouTube channels, let’s take a look at some of the most informative tools fans should have at their disposal ahead of what promises to be a festival of football.

Football Ramble is worth listening to

Given the rather depressing state of the Irish national team at the moment, a podcast with a hint of comical value is something fans of Ireland deserve. Football Ramble is the standout production here, with the likes of Marcus Speller, Pete Donaldson, and Andy Brassell being more than capable of keeping you in the loop during the tournament and offering some hilarious takes along the way.

If Football Ramble doesn’t tickle your fancy, then Totally Football Show with James Richardson is a solid alternative. The BBC 5 Live Football Daily podcast is another enthralling production here, alongside the award-winning Football Weekly podcast from The Guardian, another strong contender in the podcast arena. The Athletic Football Podcast also deserves a mention here.

YouTube is a go-to resource for many

If you prefer to soak up your football-related content in video form, then YouTube is a platform that could come in extremely handy during the Euros. The sheer amount of channels that will undoubtedly be focusing on the competition is vast, although there are some esteemed creators that immediately spring to mind.

For example, The Club’s opinion-based material is likely to serve up plenty of entertainment, with the likes of Rory Jennings and Adam McKola sharing passionate rants about Gareth Southgate’s England on a weekly basis.

The same applies to Football Daily, with the channel’s controversial takes and strong doses of banter representing an enticing opportunity for Irish fans. Copa90 is another channel to get behind, a place where football meets culture.

The must-read publications

An option if you’re wanting to read pre-tournament previews and interviews with key players, there are a number of must-read publications that should be snapped up in time for the Euros. Likely to feature in-depth content and offer some engrossing views, there are some excellent publications to consume here.
For many, MUNDIAL is the top football magazine around right now. Taking readers on a journey through football culture, it’s a publication that will surely have a strong Euros focus. Likewise, Four Four Two’s issues leading up the competition will undoubtedly revolve around the some of the tournament’s most-fancied sides, such as England, France, and Germany.

World Soccer is another great read here, with monthly issues being snapped up by football fans everywhere given the specials on major tournaments and the detailed scout reports it tends to feature.
