ITV wins back England Football broadcasting rights

England on Channel  e

ITV will show live and exclusive free to air coverage of all England men’s football matches outside major tournament finals from September 2024 through to June 2028.

In the new deal announced today, ITV will broadcast England’s bid to reach the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals in North America, followed by the European Qualifiers to UEFA EURO 2028.

All matches – home and away – for both campaigns will be shown across ITV.

In addition, all England matches in the UEFA Nations League, plus all England friendlies will be shown by ITV.

ITV had previously held the rights for England European Qualifiers from 2018 until 2022. They are currently being shown on Channel 4.

“We’re delighted to bring the England men’s team back to ITV, which keeps coverage of their progress between major tournaments on free to air television,” said Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport.

“We have an experienced team here who are looking forward to bringing viewers all the action and insight from England’s qualification campaigns in the coming years.”

ITV currently holds the rights to show both UEFA EURO 2024 and UEFA EURO 2028, sharing coverage with the BBC.
