Please note: some people have experienced issues with some of these applications on their PCs. Some anti-virus programs may treat them as malicious, but personally I've not had any issues in over 18 months of using them.
There are lots of free sites offering streaming football, not to mention other sports, but I'm going to tell you about the few that I use with varying degrees of success ? this is not an exact science as you'll find out!
Sopcast ? by far my most successful app for watching footy. Go to www.sopcast.com and download/install the small application. Now go to www.freefootball.org and go to the forums. Create a (free) login and head to the footy forum. On here its forbidden to post links to streaming footy due to certain laws & restrictions, but if you click on the moderator signatures you'll get all the links for upcoming games. Also, you can request links and have people send them to you privately through the forum. This is the best resuorce for finding working links.
TVants ? a similar application to the above, go to www.tvants-ppstream.com and follow the instructions for download/install, then head onto the freefootball forum and continue as above.
These pages are also decent places for streaming games:
Hope this helps some of you; you will find that you have varying degrees of success with all of the above on any given day. The key is patience; free stuff is hard to come by on the Internet ? so often it's a case of getting what you're given.
Also, please don't clutter this thread up with complaints and rants about how sopcast ruined your PC etc. All of the above is to be used at your own risk, but like I said, I've not had any problems and I'm also a network engineer so do have some insight into the workings of these contraptions.
ps: We haven't fully checked all these links. Please Email the Editor if you find one that is incorrect or isn't working. Thanks Allan! ? Michael.

To say that its impossible to see live games is simply not true. So far tonight, I’ve watched bits of Valencia v Chelsea, Celtic v Milan and The RS v Marseille. Currently I’m watching Lazio v Real Madrid, all on sopcast or tvants.
Be patient my friend.

ukrainatv.com may carry the match. Its not listed on there as of 9:30pm (est) but check tomorrow. I believe there is a cost of around $9 USD per match. They show the Ukrainian Champions League games so I would think that they would show UEFA Cup games as well.
