UEFA Euro 2008 is the official video game of the Euro 2008 football tournament, published by EA Sports. It was developed collaboratively by EA Canada and HB Studios and was released in Europe and North America on April 18, 2008 and May 19, 2008 respectively.[1] The commentary was provided by Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.

EA issued an apology after mistakenly using the Soldier's Song as Northern Ireland's anthem within the game, instead of God Save The Queen. Public Relations head Shaun White said "we pride ourselves on delivering rich and authentic videogame experiences. We sincerely apologise for this error." The apology was welcomed by Gregory Campbell, Northern Ireland's Sports Minister, who said "Any apology on this matter is most welcome. Obviously there's has been a lack of knowledge on the makers' part and hopefully it will be changed as soon as possible".[2][3]
