Ex-Chelsea player backs Liverpool to win Champions League

BT Sport has announced the Liverpool vs Real Madrid Champions League Final will be a free-for-all.

Pete Oliver, managing director marketing and sales, consumer, said: "To have Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final is fantastic".

"We have always said that we want to make top quality sport available to more people".

VIRGIN MEDIA AND TV3 have secured the rights to 327 exclusive matches across the Uefa Champions League and Europa League from next season, including the finals of both competitions. BT also confirmed that the clash will be broadcast for free too.

The deal also includes rights to the final qualifying round for the Champions League, the Super Cup and all Champions League and Europa League highlights.

However, TV3 and Virgin Media failed to clarify whether their coverage of Europa and Uefa matches will be a free service or pay-to-view.

Viewers in Ireland will be able to watch the Champions League final on RTE - but not for much longer.

The new deal will see the Ballymount-based broadcaster share the rights to 16 Tuesday night Champions League matches with RTÉ; with the latter having first choice of game broadcast.

They will take on the might of Real Madrid, the most successful team in the history of the Champions League, in Kiev's Olympic Stadium on Saturday 26 May with Ronaldo and co looking to win the competition for the third year in a row.

Liverpool will be aiming to overtake Munich and FC Barcelona to go third in the all time honours table with their sixth European Cup/Champions League victory.

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.
