Premier Sports secures the rights to the Nations League and the Euro 2024 qualifying games not involving England and Wales.

Premier Sports has been confirmed as the UK home for most Nations League and Euro 2024 qualifying games over the next few years.

The deal with UEFA will see all European games not involving England and Wales in both competitions play out on Premier Sports - including some games being shown for free on FreeSports - starting next week with the new season of the Nations League.

Sky had previously held the rights to the competitions but lost out as part of a process that will see new Scandinavian streaming service Viaplay take over from Premier for the next cycle of the competitions, as well as World Cup qualifiers, from 2024.

"We are thrilled to be awarded this fantastic package of UEFA National Team matches," said Richard Sweeney, chief exec of Premier Sports.

"This summer when the domestic seasons ends, our subscribers will enjoy a feast of international football with live coverage of the UEFA Nations League where every game matters as it provides a potential route to qualification for UEFA Euro 2024.

"From 2023 we will bring fans every game of their team's vital qualification process towards UEFA Euro 2024."

Nations League and Euro qualifying games involving the England national team will be broadcast by Channel 4.
