For the third year running, the Champions League and Europa League finals will be free to watch online. But before we get to the tournament to end all tournaments, there are still two big events on the football calendar in the shape of the Europa cup final and Champions League final.

When asked by The Irish Times if all of the matches in question would be broadcast free-to-air, a TV3 spokesperson said: "We will be sharing more information about the deal over the coming weeks".

RTÉ has retained a Tuesday slot, but TV3 will also be showing a live game that night due to a new schedule.

Pat Kiely, managing director of TV3, did not mention any details of the broadcast arrangements in...

Up until now, RTE had the rights for Wednesday night Champions League matches and the final while Eir also showed Champions League games on Tuesday and Wednesday as well as Europa League matches on Thursdays.

Mahathir says he'll stay in office for 1-2 years
Mahathir also said he will find a replacement for the head of the anti-corruption authority, after the resignation of former one. Anwar, 70, serving a five-year sentence for sodomy, has been recovering from a shoulder injury in hospital under police guard.

"The sports rights market continues to evolve and RTÉ is now competing against major global companies both here and in the United Kingdom, both free and subscription, for the right to broadcast premium sports events in this country". The TV3 group - which includes TV3, 3e and Be3 - will have exclusive rights to 327 European matches.

There's a summer of football ahead with the World Cup just around the corner.

If Virgin does opt to stream some matches exclusively online it will represent a further move towards such a system in football, with Facebook and Amazon both already having made tentative - but so far unsuccessful - moves towards the Premier League market.

The Champions League final, which sees English side Liverpool take on European giants Real Madrid in Kyiv will be shown on Saturday 26 May.

And, thanks to BT Sport, you'll be able to watch both matches for free online.
