Uefa’s club competitions will continue to be shown live on Australian streaming subscription service Stan Sport, after it renewed its rights deal for the 2024 to 2027 cycle.


  • Nine Entertainment-owned streaming subscription service will broadcast all 203 Uefa Champions League matches per season
  • Extension also covers all 342 Europa League and Europa Conference League games
  • The finals of all three competitions will be simulcast live on Nine Network’s’ free-to-air (FTA) 9Network linear channel and the 9Now ad-based streaming platform
  • Super Cup rights are also included in deal that kicks in from the 2024/25 season


The Uefa club competitions, which Stan Sport first started broadcasting in 2021 after the collapse of Sports Flick’s AUS$60 million deal, remain the Nine-owned streaming platform’s only soccer rights property. The previous deal was reportedly worth around AUS$12 million (US$8 million) per year, but with the increasing number of games under the new contract that figure will increase. 


“Stan’s partnership with Uefa has been a key pillar of our sports business, and we are delighted to continue broadcasting the world’s best club football competitions until 2027,” said Martin Kugeler, Stan chief executive.

Coming next:

The Champions League will see an increase in fixtures under the new cycle, due to the competition expanding to include six additional clubs for the group stages.
