The BBC and ITV have reached a deal with UEFA to share coverage of the UEFA Euro 2024 and 2028 tournaments.
The broadcasters will split the rights to each tournament equally, with matches divided between them until the final which both will air.
UEFA 2024 will take place in Germany, with the host venue for 2028 yet to be announced.
Speaking about the deal, Barbara Slater, director BBC Sport, said: “The BBC has proven time and again that we have the ability to bring the biggest sporting events to the widest audience. The previous UEFA European Championships were a huge success so we’re delighted that we’ve completed this deal for the next two tournaments that we hope will provide even more memorable moments for viewers.”
Niall Sloane, ITV director of Sport, added: “This deal keeps the Euros available on free-to-air television for viewers for the coming years. Having delivered the biggest ever UK single channel football audience of 27.6 million at last year’s Euros, for England’s semi-final victory over Denmark, we’re looking forward to bringing to the widest audiences the very best coverage of tournaments that have such broad appeal.”
Guy-Laurent Epstein, marketing director, UEFA said: “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with ITV and the BBC. Each partner brings in-depth knowledge and expertise to the broadcasting of the UEFA European Football Championship and we look forward to the extensive and excellent coverage for the fans across the UK.”
