BT Sport to air Champions League and Europa League finals for free

BT Sport has announced that their coverage of the Champions League and Europa League finals will be free to watch in the UK.

Manchester United tackle Villarreal in Gdansk on Wednesday in the Europa League final, while Manchester City lock horns with Chelsea in the Champions League final in Porto on Saturday.

All clubs involved were given limited tickets for the fixtures, with access to stadiums still restricted amid the coronavirus pandemic.

That means there will be thousands of supporters left behind when others travel to the continent for the European finals but there is, at least, some good news.

Both finals will be available for free at btsport.com/final on the matchday, as well as on the BT Sport YouTube channel.
