Big news! All Virgin TV customers can watch the UEFA Champions League and Europa Conference League finals at no extra cost
By Virgin TV Edit
After all the thrills of a super-tight Premier League title race that saw some exhilarating football played, you might feel you need to catch your breath. But you don’t! Immediately after the end of the domestic season, attention turns to Europe. And the big news is that two teams from the Premier League are competing for continental glory.
The even bigger new is we’re giving all Virgin TV customers the chance to watch BOTH of these massive finals at no extra cost.
On Wednesday 7 June, it’s the UEFA Europa Conference League final. West Ham will be at Prague’s Fortuna Arena trying to win their first European trophy since 1965, as stars like Declan Rice and Lucas Paquetá strive to bring glory to the claret and blue. They’ll face Fiorentina, whose greatest European night was even longer ago in 1961. It promises to be a magnificent occasion for both clubs and their fans.
And the game will be live on BT Sport 1 HD (CH 527) and in 4K on BT Sport Ultimate (CH 531) for subscribers, and on CH 524 in HD for non-subscribers at no extra cost. Coverage starts at 6.30pm.
Then on Saturday 10 June, it’s the big one – in every sense. Two of the world’s biggest clubs will enter the colossal Atatürk Stadium in Istanbul for a titanic battle to get their hands on the enormous trophy and the honour of calling themselves champions of Europe.
For Manchester City, it’s their second Champions League final, and after the disappointment of defeat to Chelsea in 2021 they’ll be desperate to make this one count. Since that day they’ve added superhuman striker Erling Haaland to their squad and when he’s on form, and feeding off the creativity of Kevin de Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva, very few defences are able to stop City.
Although Inter have been European champions three times, most recently in 2010, the Milan club find themselves cast in the role of plucky underdogs against the might of Man City. But they have plenty of talent in their ranks, from Euros-winning midfielder Niccolò Barella to World Cup-winning forward Lautaro Martínez. City may have swept all before them in the Premier League this season, but they must not take their opponents lightly.
These two teams have never met in a competitive game before. If you’re looking for an omen, though, the only previous final held at the Atatürk Stadium ended in a victory for a team from north-west England over one from Milan…
For full live coverage of the match, tune in to BT Sport 1 HD (CH 527) and it’s also in 4K on BT Sport Ultimate (CH 531). And again, if you’re not a BT Sport subscriber, go to CH 524 in HD or to catch the match at no extra cost. Coverage starts at 6pm.
