RTVE said in a statement, “Reinforces its commitment to the Spanish national football team to accompany the national team in all its matches over the next four years, a total of around 40 matches.”
International friendlies, qualifying fixtures for the European Championship and World Cup, and the final phase of the Euros, which will be contested in Germany in 2024, are all covered by this agreement with UEFA. A tournament that has returned to RTVE after a 20-year hiatus.
RTVE will also air other international tournaments including the Women’s European Championship in 2025, the two European Under-21 Championships in 2023 and 2025, the two Nations League finals, and the two Finalissimas between the European and South American champions in 2022 and 2025. This year’s Finalissima will be held at the Wembley Stadium in London on Wednesday, June 1, with Italy facing Argentina. The game will be broadcast live on RTVE’s La 1 free-to-air television channel.
The new UEFA agreement enhances RTVE’s international soccer offering, as it already has the right to broadcast all Spanish national team matches for the next five years, for which it will allegedly pay €140 million.
