The BBC has won the rights back to broadcast the FA Cup after a five-year hiatus.

The corporation will share the TV rights with the newly created BT Sport from 2014/15 to 2018.

BBC and BT Sport will also share highlight rights for The FA Cup, while BT Sport will be the live broadcaster for The FA Community Shield.

“I would like to thank everyone who expressed an interest in these FA Cup broadcast rights and congratulate the BBC and BT Sport on their successful tenders,” said Greg Dyke, the new FA Chairman.

“Their valuable support underlines what a great competition The FA Cup is and how important it is to the sporting calendar.

“The BBC is obviously an organisation I know very well but I don’t think anyone would dispute that their name goes hand in hand with some of the most famous FA Cup moments of yesteryear.

“We’re delighted that the competition is back on their channels, not just through television but with significant online presence as well.

“BT Sport might be new to television but they’re a major corporation and have been a part of everyday British life for a number of decades.

“They have a huge consumer database and are shaping up to be a heavyweight player in the broadcasting world so The FA Cup is a fantastic asset for their growing portfolio of sports.”

In addition to both broadcast deals, News UK have won non-exclusive clip rights to The FA Cup, Community Shield and England matches for use across The Sun and The Times publications.

The 2013/14 FA Cup season will be shown exclusively live on ITV and ESPN.
