TV3 secure rights to Champions League and Europa League next season”

"This season we have shown some absolutely incredible games and have had some of our biggest games to date with our UEFA Champions League viewing figures up by 47% this season".

RTÉ has retained a Tuesday slot, but TV3 will also be showing a live game that night due to a new schedule.

Pete Oliver, managing director of marketing and sales at BT Sport, said: "To have Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final is fantastic".

The deal also includes rights to the final qualifying round for the Champions League, the Super Cup and all Champions League and Europa League highlights.

News broke earlier today that TV3 had snapped up the majority of the rights to Europe's top competition for the next three seasons.

Virgin Media Ireland, TV3 and RTE have between them secured the rights to the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches for the next three years.

Who's your money on to win for the UEFA Champions League Final?

The move by Virgin is the latest in its ever-expanding live sport portfolio which now includes the majority of the Champions League and Europa League, the Rugby World Cup, the Six Nations, the Champions Cup and United Kingdom racing. Once again we will be making the UEFA Champions League final available to all to watch online for free.

Are we heading towards an era where every match could be streamed on YouTube?

A spokesperson for Virgin told the Irish Independent: "Virgin Media and TV3 are simply announcing this landmark rights deal - which has just been established - and they will then be providing more information in due course".

The Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid takes place in Kiev on May 26, but you can get the match programme even if you're not travelling to Ukraine.

BT Sport hold the broadcasting rights to the Champions League in the UK.
