*ESPN will interrupt its live coverage of soccer’s European Championship so it can provide live coverage of Muhammad Ali’s memorial service on Friday at 2 p.m. EST on its main channel.
Former President Bill Clinton will deliver Ali’s eulogy at the service, to be held at the 15,000-seat KFC Yum! Center in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. Other speakers include family members, actor Billy Crystal, sportscaster Bryant Gumbel and representatives of multiple faiths.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and King Abdullah II of Jordan plan to attend, and actor Will Smith and former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis are among Ali’s eight pallbearers.
Ali died Friday in Arizona after suffering for years with Parkinson’s disease. The three-time heavyweight champ and worldwide sports icon was 74.
ESPN will move the Euro 2016 opener between host France and Romania, which also begins at 2 p.m. on Friday, from ESPN to ESPN2.
