ITV Sport have secured the live rights to England’s competitive qualifying matches home and away for Euro 2016 and the World Cup in 2018. The main games of the “fianls” of Euro 2016 and the World Cup in 2018 are again to be split between BBC and ITV.

The four-year deal starting in September has been agreed as part of UEFA’s new strategy of central selling of European international football, for which the FA have been guaranteed a minimum £25m for their rights.

This will be the first time in a number of years that a single broadcaster has shown all England’s qualifying games for consecutive tournaments.

ITV has held the rights to England’s home games since 2008 and, since 2009, the team’s home and away friendly matches. This new deal extends their coverage to all away internationals.

Sky Sports will show the live games featuring the other three home nations, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as the Republic of Ireland.

And Sky, who have the England highlights, will also share the live broadcasts for England’s away games if they are drawn to play another of the home nations.
