TV3 Is Going To Dominate Irish TV Coverage Of The Champions League

Irish broadcasters split European football rights

This year's Europa League final between Marseille and Atletico Madrid takes place this weekend.

TV3, which was acquired by Virgin Media in 2015, said yesterday that it had bought the exclusive Irish rights for 327 matches a season across the Uefa Champions League and Europa League over the next three years.

TV3 and Virgin Media will dominate Irish TV coverage of the Champions League and Europa League for the next three seasons.

In a reverse of the current schedule, RTE will now have first pick of Tuesday night Champions League fixtures, with TV3 getting first choice on Wednesday. It is unclear how Virgin will deliver this volume of matches - whether it will be broadcast on TV3, a subsidiary channel, or via an online streaming service. Virgin Media rival Eir had the rights to Europa League matches.

RTÉ has first pick on Tuesday, but TV3 will show a game in the other slot and also have the option to air other fixtures.




There's a summer of football ahead with the World Cup just around the corner.

"Our award winning sports broadcasting team look forward to bringing the biggest clubs and the best players to our viewers and customers in new and exciting ways over the coming European football seasons". Non-subscribers will be able to view the match in Kiev on May 26th via YouTube, the BT Sport app and the company's website.

Liverpool are aiming for an historic sixth European Cup (or Champions League title to use the modern parlance), while Real Madrid can claim a 13th title and a third in a row.

"To have Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final is fantastic", said Pete Oliver, BT Consumer's marketing and sales managing director. BT also confirmed that the clash will be broadcast for free too.
