FITE+ secures the UK and Ireland rights to the AFC Champions League in a two-year deal.

FITE+ has secured the UK and Ireland rights to the AFC Champions League for the next two seasons.

The competition is contested annually amongst Asia's top clubs and is attracting heightened interest this year following the blockbuster moves of big-name footballers to the Saudi Pro League over the summer.

This season four teams from Saudi Arabia are taking part, meaning that the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante, Sadio Mane, Marcelo Brozovic, Ruben Neves, Benjamin Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly should be on show.

FITE+ - a streaming and on-demand subscription service - will show every game from the competition live on its platform and will also make all matches available on demand, starting with this week's opening group games.

Adam Bigwood, vp of subscriptions at FITE, said: "We are delighted to bring the AFC Champions League to our FITE+ subscribers.

"This partnership not only bolsters our rapidly expanding sports content library but also underscores our commitment to delivering top-notch sports entertainment to our fans."

FITE+ will also show the games in Belgium, France and the Netherlands as part of the deal.

Sports Mole readers can sign up for a FITE+ subscription with a seven-day free trial here.
