uefa under-21 championship

Sky Sports has signed a deal to show every game form the UEFA Under-21 Championship 2017. Its arch rival, BT Sport, has exclusive rights to the adults' games from the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, so Sky is encroaching on its territory somewhat.

The under-21's tournament kicks off on 16th June. It will take place in Poland, with the host nation being in England's group. PFA Young Player of the Year nominee Jordan Pickford, Everton's Tom Davies and Leicester's Demarai Grey are all in with a shot of representing England.

The last tournament took place in 2015, and saw Sweden emerge victorious. True to form, England went out in the group stage.

"The UEFA Under-21 Championship 2017 strengthens our football offering for fans," Gary Hughes, Sky Sports' head of football, said in a statement. "The tournament unearths future greats and is incredibly difficult to predict which makes it such an exciting proposition. Who will be the next Harry Kane, can England win their first title since 1984? Sky Sports is the only place to find out."

Sky Sports also shows the vast majority of the Premier League's matches, as well as the EFL play-offs, SPFL, La Liga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup, Copa Del Rey and the Copa Italia finales. Later in the summer, it will also show the Premier League Asia Trophy and the inaugural six-a-side Star Sixes tournament.
