England’s matches from 2018 until 2022 will be broadcast on ITV and Sky Sports, UEFA announced this morning.

ITV has retained exclusive live rights to England’s games in the European Qualifiers up until Euro 2020 and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Sky Sports has been awarded an extensive live rights package that includes all of the Three Lions’ matches in the newly-created UEFA Nations League.

The inaugural season of the Nations League is due to begin in September of next year, and will see the 55 UEFA national teams split into four 12-team divisions. The 2018-19 Nations League is linked to the qualifying process for Euro 2020, which will begin in March 2019.

Sky Sports has also been given exclusive rights to the first two editions of the UEFA Nations League Final Four. Scheduled to be held in June 2019 and June 2021 respectively, each Final Four will see the four best UEFA Nations League participants compete for the title of UEFA Nations League champion.
