The Champions League final is the biggest night of domestic football in the calendar. It is simply the most prestigious game in club world football and the spectacle of Liverpool v Real Madrid feels apt.


Both teams are among the most successful in the history of the competition. Real Madrid top the charts with 13 triumphs, while Liverpool are third on six, but a victory here would nudge them level with AC Milan.

The sheer scale of the match is clear for all to see, and BT Sport has made a decision that will make it easier than ever for all to see.

BT coverage will be shown live across multiple free platforms, including YouTube, this weekend so everyone can tune in to soak up the grand occasion.

Fans across the UK will remember the all-English Liverpool v Tottenham Champions League final was also made available for free in 2019, and BT has once against responded to the millions of fans who don't subscribe to its services with an olive branch.
