Following the FIFA World Cup 2018 draw on Friday, BBC and ITV have confirmed which broadcaster will show which matches of next summer’s much anticipated event in Russia.
Eurosport will continue to bring fans across Europe all the action from the US Open after reaching a broadcast deal for a further five years. The deal excludes the UK and Ireland where Eurosport has historically sub-licensed the rights.
The series will follow the team through the season and promises fans a glimpse into the historic Club, coach Pep Guardiola and the week-on-week stories that unfold within the lives of the players currently sitting top of the English Premier League table.
The deal covers exclusive free-to-air TV rights for eight singles matches, including a semi-final and the final, and includes the right to stream these matches across the BBC’s online platforms, as well as non-exclusive radio rights for the whole tournament.
The film, No Hunger in Paradise, is based on the book by award-winning author, broadcaster and journalist Michael Calvin, and features contributions from Arsene Wenger, Gareth Southgate and Steven Gerrard.
