Modern Times Group (MTG) said it will show every match from the UEFA Champions League men's football tournament in Finland for three years starting from the 2015/2016 season, on Viaplay and the new Viasat Sport Finland channel. The new channel will show key matches live with local commentary from every Tuesday and Wednesday match day in the group and knock-out rounds, as well as the Saturday final.

Viasat Sport Finland will be available to all Finnish households through Viasat’s DTH satellite platform, as well as third party cable, IPTV and DTT providers. Besides the soccer, the channel will also show live ice hockey matches from both the NHL and KHL. Subscribers to the online streaming service Viaplay will be able to select from all matches.

MTG is the only broadcaster to have continuously held the exclusive broadcasting rights for the UEFA Champions League since it was created in 1992, and has always shown the championship in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
