England v Lithuania live on TV3 on Sunday 26th March, 2017
TV3 has secured the rights to broadcast exclusive live coverage of England’s European Qualifiers to the 2018 FIFA World Cup thanks to an agreement with Sky Sports, the official licensee in Ireland.
Under the deal, TV3 will broadcast six live England Soccer Internationals, beginning with this Sunday’s European Qualifier against Lithuania at Wembley. Coverage will also include England’s trip to Hampden Park as they take on Scotland on Saturday 10th June, 2017.
The deal adds to TV3’s growing stable of sports rights which includes coverage of Germany v England soccer international tonight, the UEFA Champions League quarter and semi-finals, Europa League Final, FA Cup, the Aintree Grand National and Epsom Derby. TV3 also has the exclusive broadcast rights to the Six Nations for four years from 2018.
The six England European Qualifiers to the 2018 FIFA World Cup will also be available to watch live on 3player
Commenting on the deal, TV3’s Director of Broadcast Niall Cogley said:
“Irish people like to watch the England football team and, with thanks to our colleagues at Sky Sports for facilitating the agreement, we are very happy that audiences in Ireland can watch all these games live on TV3. Following our hugely successful coverage of last week’s Cheltenham festival, with Irish Free to Air audiences up 37% on last year, we are looking forward to even more live sport across TV3 over the coming months including the next stages of the UEFA Champions League, the Aintree Grand National, the Epsom Derby, the UEFA Europa League Final and the FA Cup Final.”
