ITV secure highlights to Champions League and Europa League games

Full matches will be shown exclusively on BT Sport from the 2015/16 season

ITV has secured the highlights of Champions League and Europa League matches from 2015-2018 after losing out in the bidding for the live rights to BT Sport.

The deal with UEFA will see a highlights programme covering all of the week's Champions League games on Wednesday nights and on Thursday nights for the Europa League.

Niall Sloane, ITV director of sport, said: "We are happy to have secured these highlights packages and to be able to bring them to a significant free-to-air viewership."
