Unfortunately, it’ll be harder (and potentially more expensive) to follow your team’s achievements in competition – if you want to watch the action live anyway. However, the deal with the BBC means UK fans will be able to watch the Champions League for free on Terrestrial TV for the first time in many years.

The latest Champions League finals and its partner competitions are streamed for free by BT Sport on YouTube and on their own channels.

BT Sport has exclusive television rights for the UEFA Europa League and Conference League tournaments.
