BT Sport will remain the home of all top flight European club football until 2024, following a new deal between BT and UEFA.

BT have secured the rights to all 420 games of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and the new UEFA Europa Conference League, for a further three seasons.

This represents an increase of 77 games from the previous deal, and includes highlights and in-match clips, and commences in 2021.

“We’re delighted to remain the home of UEFA Champions League in the UK,” said Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer Division.

“BT Sport leads the way when it comes to UEFA Champions League coverage, and we’re very excited to continue to bring our world class coverage to one of the most exciting football competitions in the world – whether that’s broadcasting 12 games simultaneously or delivering industry leading images in 4K UHD.

“With increasingly more ways to watch our content, with more games on show than ever before, and alongside our excellent line up of other competitions and sports, BT Sport is going from strength to strength.”

Last season the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League was a huge success for BT with an all English team finals. BT Sport saw a 26 per cent increase in UEFA Champions League viewer hours, with the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs available for all to watch in the UK on social media, and a record breaking 11.3m people tuning in across all platforms.

BT will pay £400m each year for the rights.
