BBC Football Coverage

The choice of live football that is broadcast on BBC Sport is far more extensive than most people think.

First, there are the major international football tournaments - the World Cup and Euros. Coverage of these is shared with ITV Sport, but BBC Sport often get the best games and always show the finals.

Domestically, they have the rights to show the FA Cup (shared with BT Sport) and they have first pick of live games from every round, including the FA Cup final.

There are also live matches from the Scottish FA Cup, Scottish Championship and Northern Irish Premiership. These games are only shown on TV to viewers in their respective countries, but if the game is not on live in your region you can always stream it live on the BBC website or the iPlayer.

There is also a good selection of liveĀ  women's football on the BBC. They show one live WSL match every week throughout the season, and also cover the women's FA Cup, women's SPL, and international games featuring all the home nations.

Whilst there is no longer live Premier League football on the BBC, they do have the exclusive rights to the highlights package. Match of the Day is on ever Saturday night, and Match of the Day 2 every Sunday night. There are also midweek specials of both these shows at various points throughout the season, whenever the Premier League has a round of midweek fixtures.
