BT Sports retains Champions League and Europa League UK TV rights
It was announced today that BT Sport will remain the exclusive UK home of all UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League football.
BT will pay around £394m each year for the rights until the end of the 2020/21 season.
The UEFA Champions League is set to be even stronger from 2018/19, with a minimum of four participating teams now guaranteed from each of England, Spain, Germany and Italy, resulting in more games between the top European teams. Fans will also be able to enjoy UEFA Champions League ‘double header’ nights, as live matches will kick off at both 6pm and 8pm during the Group Stage.
