BT Sport have announced that the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League finals will be broadcast free of charge for everyone in the UK. 

In a rematch of the 2018 final, Liverpool will seek to win their sixth European cup when they take on 13-time winners Real Madrid on May 28. 

The Europa League final between Rangers and Frankfurt will take place 10 days earlier in Seville, while the Europa Conference League final is set to take place a week later in Tirana, Albania.

And now BT Sport – the broadcaster which has shown European football in the UK since 2015 – has confirmed residents will be able to watch all the finals through a series of different means, in addition to on television. 

All the finals will be available for free on their website on the respective matchdays, while those who prefer YouTube will be able to stream the game on BT Sport’s channel on that platform.

Moreover, the European finals will also be available through the BT Sport app for all small screen and large-screen devices, which ranges from smart TVs and games consoles to tablets and mobile phones.

Live coverage of the Champions League final will begin at 6pm and will be hosted by Jake Humphrey, and the team includes Rio Ferdinand, Peter Crouch, Michael Owen, Darren Fletcher, Steve McManaman, Glenn Hoddle and Des Kelly. 

The news will come as a relief to fans of all six teams especially Liverpool, with supporters asked to pay up to £578 for each ticket. 

There are 75,000 tickets available but each club has received just 19,618, while a further 12,000 were put on general sale via a ballot which closed last month, with the remainder going to the UEFA ‘family’ of sponsors and officials.

Jurgen Klopp criticised the decision, saying: ‘It is absolutely not right, but it happens everywhere.

‘It doesn’t make it better, just in this specific case you are not only paying more than last time for a ticket, but you only get 50 per cent of the tickets and the rest goes to people who pay thousands and thousands for the tickets.’

Meanwhile, Rangers fans have been allocated 10,000 tickets for the clash against Frankfurt.
