Good news today for all those who like seeing Giles, Dunphy and Brady chatting about the best teams in Europe every week.
RTÉ Sport announced today that it has retained the rights to broadcast live Wednesday night UEFA Champions League coverage, plus highlights for RTÉ2 for the next three seasons, which will see the deal go up to and including the 2017/18 Final. RTÉ’s live coverage will be available in the Republic of Ireland on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player - online, on mobile and on tablet devices.
Ryle Nugent, Group Head, RTÉ Sport said "This is a great result for RTÉ and for Irish sports fans. The UEFA Champions League is undoubtedly the premier club tournament in world football and retaining live free-to-air Wednesday night rights and highlights is in keeping with RTÉ Sport’s aim of bringing national teams, national games and, in the case of the Champions League, major events to Irish audiences."
