BeIN to offer European club finals on YouTube

Pay-television broadcaster BeIN Sports will stream live coverage of the 2015-16 finals of the Uefa Champions League and Europa League club football tournaments to audiences in Spain via video-sharing platform YouTube.

BeIN Media Group, the parent company of BeIN Sports, has exclusive rights in Spain to the Champions League in a three-season deal, from 2015-16 to 2017-18.

The announcement comes after UK telecommunications company BT confirmed earlier this week that its pay-television broadcaster, BT Sport, will also provide both finals on YouTube.

An all-Spanish affair sees Real Madrid face city rival Atlético in the Champions League final on May 28. Spanish LaLiga club Sevilla will take on English Premier League team Liverpool in the Europa League final on May 18.
