Canal + struck a blow, Wednesday June 29, by winning the broadcasting rights for the entire Champions League, the Europa League and the Europa League Conference over the period 2024-2027. The information was announced in the evening by Maxime Saada, the chairman of the management board of the channel, via a message posted on his Twitter account.

Lot “B”, also acquired by Canal+, concerns all the other matches in the competition (166 in total).

Finally, the encrypted channel also won the tender for the broadcasting rights of C3 and C4.

As a reminder, from 2024, the Champions League will introduce its new format adopted last May. On the program: 36 qualifiers instead of 32 and above all more matches since each team will play eight matches (instead of six currently) during the group stage. The Europa League and Conference Europa League will also grow to 36 teams each.
