The FA has confirmed that ITV has won exclusive rights for all England internationals from 2014/15 to 2018.
The rights now include all home and away friendly internationals having already won World Cup and European Championship qualification fixtures from UEFA.
“ITV have done a tremendous job in recent years and we look forward to their fantastic continued support of the England team,” said Greg Dyke, the new FA Chairman.
“We are delighted to have all the England games, both qualification and friendly internationals, in one place allowing ITV to follow the team home and away.”

“By adding exclusive live coverage of England’s friendly games, both home and away, until 2018 to our exclusive rights to show live England’s competitive qualifying tournament matches over the same period, we continue to be the home of live England football.”
