uefa nations league

Sky Sports has bagged the rights to show England games in the new Uefa Nations League exclusively live.

The tournament will see England and other European countries compete against each other in a league format.

Their performances in this competition will determine how nations are seeded for the next World Cup and European Championships.

The opening stages of the Uefa Nations League will take place in September, October and November 2018, with teams divided into four groups.

Group winners will then progress to a knockout final four in June 2019 and play semi-finals and a final.

Sky Sports will also show the home nations qualifiers for Euro 2020 and World Cup 2022 live, plus England highlights.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, commented: "Showing England in competitive matches exclusively live for the first time in seven years is great news for our viewers, with the Uefa Nations League putting the top nations against each other regularly. 

"Added to the recent success of Wales and Northern Ireland in reaching major tournaments, there is even more reason to follow the home nations on Sky Sports."

This means Sky Sports will be offering up to 900 live matches between 2018 and 2022, which it says strengthens its position as the "unrivalled home of live football".

Sky Sports added that extending the coverage of live international football also underlines the breadth of coverage it offers across eight channels.

Indeed, it has recently added more Premier League matches to its schedule, coverage of The Open and extended agreements with La Liga and Formula 1.

"Sky continues to provide customers more choice than ever before," Sky Sports said.
