The BBC will show 16 games from Sweden live, with 14 of those on BBC Three and two on BBC Two and BBC Two HD, including the final on 28 July.

Hope Powell's England side, who were runners-up in 2009, finished top of their qualifying group.

England have been drawn against France, Russia and Spain in Group C for the tournament, which starts on 10 July.

All of England's matches will also be broadcast live on BBC Radio 5 live or 5 live Sports Extra.

The BBC Sport website will also have live text commentaries of all of Powell's team's games, as well as the latest news, reports and on-demand video highlights.

Each televised game will be streamed live across the BBC sport website, mobile, IPTV and the Smartphone app.

BBC director of sport Barbara Slater said: "We are delighted to provide cross-platform coverage of this summer's European Championship as well as women's football in general as the sport continues to grow in popularity."
