Wondering what Europe's biggest competition is about? Curious about the games, but have no idea who to support? We're here to help.

FOX Sports has renewed its exclusive media rights in the United States and Caribbean to the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, two of the world’s most prestigious soccer competitions, for three additional seasons from 2015-16 through 2017-18.

FOX Sports has been the English and Spanish language rights holder in the United States and Caribbean for the Champions League since the 2009-10 season and Europa League since 2012-13. The new agreement with UEFA -- the governing body of soccer in Europe -- ensures comprehensive coverage of both tournaments on multiple channels and platforms including FOX Sports, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, FOX Deportes, FOX Sports Regional Networks and FOX Soccer Plus.

“We are elated to continue our partnership with UEFA and serve as home of its flagship properties through at least 2018,” said David Nathanson, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2. “The combination of UEFA Champions and Europa leagues provides viewers with the complete club competition experience at the highest level.

"The fact that all the leading European teams and players continue to be seen on one destination speaks to FOX Sports’ commitment to showcase the world’s best. No other sports television franchise has an elite international soccer schedule that even comes close.”

In total, FOX Sports plans to carry 146 UEFA Champions League games annually throughout the term of the agreement on FOX; FOX Sports 1, America’s new national sports network; FOX Sports 2; FOX Soccer Plus; and FOX Sports Regional Networks on a live and delayed basis. FOX Sports also provides a robust offering on its authenticated/premium broadband platforms FOX Sports GO and FOXSoccer2GO including all matches carried live and on-demand.

UEFA's Europa League is an annual competition that has been organized by UEFA since 1971 for eligible European clubs, and has committed to carry 205 matches across multiple FOX networks. FOX Sports 1 is slated to carry two live UEFA Europa League matches per week, while FOX Sports 2 televises two live matches and encores of the FOX Sports 1 matches. All matches air live on the FOX Sports GO mobile app.
