The opening ceremony as well as the final match will be aired live by TV3.

"TV3 will be discussing with Astro to share some of the broadcasts as we are unable to cope with all the matches simultaneously," added Farid. The repeats of the live matches will be aired by sister company, 8TV.

As a move to hype up the event, TV3 will organise publicity campaigns in preparation for Euro 2004.
