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

Previously, Champions League matches had been shared between RTÉ and TV3 on terrestrial television in Ireland and, while that is still the case, the carve-up has changed somewhat.

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

Atletico Madrid take on Marseille in Lyon on Wednesday 16 May for the Europa Cup final, while the Champions League final takes place on Saturday 26 May between Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper has backed Liverpool to win the Champions League against Real Madrid when they clash this month in Kiev. The commercial station has also won exclusive rights for all Europa League games, as well as the final round of Champions League qualifiers and European Super Cup.

YouTube's Head of Sport in EMEA, Tomos Grace, said: "Football is by far the most popular sport on YouTube and it doesn't get more premium than the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals".

Non-subscribers will be able to view the match via YouTube, the BT Sport app and the company's website.
