Eir had the rights for Europa League matches.

If you don't have BT Sport, yes, you can listen to the match on BBC Radio 5 Live, with full commentary from 7:45pm.

In previous years, TV3 showed games on Tuesdays while RTÉ had rights to Wednesdays.

BT Sport subscribers will also be able to enjoy 360-degree highlights on the app throughout the games.

The new deal will see the Ballymount-based broadcaster share the rights to 16 Tuesday night Champions League matches with RTÉ; with the latter having first choice of game broadcast.

Nicosia explains that when they are expecting severe weather for a particular area such as the Twin Tiers they will issue a watch. A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been put into effect until 6:30 p.m. for areas near Northfield, Childress and Estelline.

"This season we have shown some absolutely wonderful games and have had some of our biggest games to date with our UEFA Champions League viewing figures up by 47% this season".

For the third year running, the Champions League and Europa League finals will be free to watch online. "Real Madrid is absolutely fantastic when they turn it on and they've been playing for the Champions League for the last few months now".

Pat Kiely, Managing Director of TV3 said: "The UEFA Champions League is the biggest and most prestigious club competition in the world and we are delighted to extend our partnership with UEFA for both the Champions League and the UEFA Europa League".

Are we heading towards an era where every match could be streamed on YouTube? The final, as with all Champions League and Europa League games, will not be broadcast on any free-to-air television in the UK. "This landmark deal confirms Virgin Media as Ireland's leading connected entertainment business and is great news for TV3 viewers and Virgin Media Customers". For everyone else, you'll be able to watch online at btsport.com/final or in UHD on YouTube, via the BT Sport app or on Virgin channel 100.
