The UEFA EURO 2020 Finals will take place in 13 cities across Europe including Dublin, where the Aviva Stadium will host three group matches and a round of 16 match.
RTÉ already holds rights to the European Qualifiers and finals for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the broadcast rights to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Ryle Nugent, Group Head of Sport RTÉ, said “Today’s announcements ensure that all Republic of Ireland European Qualifiers, both home and away, for the FIFA World Cup of 2018, the UEFA EURO 2020 Finals and the FIFA World Cup 2022 will be available, free to air, for Irish audiences on RTÉ.
“In addition, the three Finals tournaments themselves, which always provide some of the biggest and most iconic moments in sport, will be available to the Irish public. At a time of significant and increased competition in the market place to secure these rights on all platforms is a very positive step.”
