BT has revealed that live coverage of the upcoming Champions League and Europa League finals will be available to “absolutely anyone”.

The broadcaster said that both finals will be broadcast on BT Sport Showcase (channel 59 for Freeview users), the BT Sport website and YouTube, making it possible for all publicans to show the games live.

The first of the finals takes place on Wednesday 24 May when Manchester United take on Ajax in the Europa League final, with the winner set to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The Champions League final will then follow at 7.45pm on Saturday 3 June, as Real Madrid and Juventus play each other for the biggest prize in European club football.

BT Consumer CEO John Petter said that the broadcasts showed that BT was “serious” about making sport available to the widest audience possible.
