"This package of highlights and digital content will allow football fans to follow the Uefa Champions League, wherever and however they like.

"The Uefa Champions League is a wonderful addition to our portfolio of football output on the BBC and we can't wait to get started in 2024."

Guy-Laurent Epstein, Uefa marketing director, said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with the BBC in the UK for 2024-2027, as it broadcasts Uefa Champions League Wednesday highlights for the very first time.
