ITV Pundits Stand for Euro 2024 Opener, Fans Joke About Lack of Chairs

ITV have come under some criticism for making their pundits stand ahead of the Euro 2024 opener. 

Tournament hosts Germany take on Scotland in the first match of the highly-anticipated European Championship. 

ITV are the chosen broadcaster to show the match in the UK, with Ian Wright, Roy Keane and Graeme Souness on punditry duties alongside host Mark Pougatch. 

All four stood in the studio for over an hour as they discussed a number of topics related to Friday night’s showdown. 

And fans have taken to social media to make a mock of ITV, with some claiming ITV ‘can’t afford chairs’.

 One fan wrote on X: why are all the pundits standing up? can ITV not afford chairs?

Another said: The ITV coverage of the opening match with Mark Pougatch and the pundits, they could have given them some chairs to sit on in the studio.

A third posted: Why are they standing up, it’s caught me off guard. Maybe the chairs didn’t get shipped in time.  

‘Get the pundits some chairs. Sheesh’, a fourth fan insisted on X.

Ahead of the match, ITV host Laura Woods was pictured joining in with Euro 2024 festivities after touching down in Germany. 

Scotland fans were in good spirits, chanting and singing alongside the 36-year-old while holding pints in their hands ahead of this evening’s 8pm kick-off at the Allianz Arena in Munich. 

It comes as no surprise that Scotland are making the most of their time at Euro 2024 given they have struggled to qualify for major tournaments in the past. 

Euro 2024 marks their second major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, having previously competed in the Covid-delayed Euro 2020 finals.
