You can watch the Champions League & Europa League final on YouTube!

If you don’t have cable television, you don’t need to spend hours hunting after live stream links for the Champions League final!

BT Sport have confirmed that they would be streaming the Champions League as well as Europa League final on YouTube, sticking to a promise they made after winning rights to broadcast matches from the competition, last year.

Chief Executive of BT Consumer, John Petter said: “We’ve always said we wanted to give top quality sport back to the people and making the UEFA Champions League and Europa League finals free to everyone in the UK does this in a big way,”

“We’re also bringing BT Sport to a new generation of younger sports fans who view their entertainment online, through social media and on their mobile devices.  We plan to make these finals the most social sports broadcast ever, with lots of exciting content in the build-up and on the night across YouTube, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Vine.

“Both BT and UEFA are delighted with what we have achieved in our first year as the broadcaster of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

“The Manchester City semi-final second leg against Real Madrid had an audience peak of 1.7m and we were privileged to show what most people regard as one of the truly outstanding European matches when Liverpool came back to beat Borussia Dortmund 4-3 in the Europa League quarter finals. That game had an audience high of 1.6 million, which is fantastic,”

“Now we want to make sure that millions more sports fans can join in from next season, accessing content digitally, whether that’s through social media, mobile devices or digital TV,” Peter concluded.

The Champions League final between Real Madrid and local rivals Atletico Madrid will take place on the 18th of May, while the Europa League final between Liverpool and Sevilla will happen 10 days later.
