S4C to continue coverage of Welsh national football team
S4C has secured exclusive UK free-to-air broadcast rights to show the Wales football team’s matches from 2022 to 2024.
Following an agreement with UEFA, Wales supporters can watch the team’s upcoming UEFA Nations League campaign and the European Qualifiers campaign for UEFA EURO 2024, live on Sgorio Rhyngwladol.
The agreement covers Wales matches over two years, starting on Wednesday 1 June with the UEFA Nations League game away against Poland. Games will all be live in the Welsh language on S4C.
Sgorio Rhyngwladol host, Dylan Ebenezer, said: “Naturally, we are delighted that Sgorio will continue to follow the national team and bring the passion of the red wall to living rooms, football clubs and pubs across the nation.
“This is such an exciting time to be a Wales supporter. We have a talented, confident young team being led by greats like Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey and the future looks bright. We can’t wait to get behind the team once again.”
S4C Chief Executive, Sian Doyle, said: “We are thrilled that S4C will be the exclusive free-to-air home of the Wales men’s national football team, and we believe that this is fantastic news for Welsh football supporters and the Welsh language.
“This is a golden age for the Welsh national team and for the continued growth and development of the game it is key that supporters can enjoy their matches on free-to-air television.”
Following the UEFA Nations League match between Poland and Wales next Wednesday, June 1, S4C will be at the Cardiff City Stadium for live coverage of Wales in their European Qualifiers play-off final to the FIFA World Cup 2022, before resuming coverage of the UEFA Nations League on Wednesday, June 8, with Wales v Netherlands in Cardiff.
Wales will then host Belgium at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday, June 11, before concluding a busy fortnight of football with an away match against the Netherlands on Tuesday, June 14.
