CBS Picked Up the UEFA Champions League

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A slight update. CBS Sports picked up the reaming rights for this season's UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League and the 2020/21 season after the news of Tuner Sports opted out of their contract from UEFA. This is basically the extension of the initial rights they're gonna have starting in the 2021/22 season.

The details on how CBS is gonna cover it: Most of the games is gonna be on CBS All Access with select games will be on the main CBS network and CBS Sports Network. CBS Sports HQ will have coverage of the drawing on Friday morning (it'll be also on All Access as well).
