HomeSports CoverageBT Sport retain rights to UEFA Champions League and Europa League football till 2020/21

BT Sport will remain the exclusive UK home of all UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League football, following a competitive auction process.

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.

Viewers 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.

BT will continue to show UEFA matches using the latest broadcast innovation and technology, with games made available in 4K ultra high definition with Dolby Atmos sound, and via the award-winning BT Sport App.

“We are delighted to have renewed these rights. The UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League are two of the best competitions in the world and we would like to thank UEFA for choosing us as their exclusive broadcast partner in the UK,” said John Petter, Consumer CEO at BT.

“The UEFA Champions League is due to get even stronger and we are delighted that fans will be able to enjoy two live matches a night for the first time.”

BT secured the rights until the end of the 2020/21 season and will pay around £394m each year for the rights.
