New TV deal struck to cover 2021 UEFA Women's European Championships
A new TV deal has been agreed to show the 2021 Women's European Championships in England.
The deal was struck between The European Broadcasting Union - which is an international alliance of 56 media organisations including UK networks such as ITV and Channel 4 - and UEFA.
However, it is not yet known which specific UK channel will broadcast the tournament. Internationally, other well-known channels include RTE and TF1.
The deal has been agreed by the 'Eurovision Sport' division and is a three-year deal which also encompasses the youth and Futsal national teams.
Pascal Fratellia, Eurovision Sport’s head of football rights said: “The deal ensures extensive broadcast support from EBU members across Europe for women’s football, at both the highest level and at the grassroots.
“Women’s football has entered a new era, engaging audiences and growing its fan base, and Eurovision Sport is proud to support and hopefully help take this to the next level as the natural broadcast partner.”
