Central European commercial network Nova Sport has snapped up a selection of rights across the Czech Republic to pan-European club soccer’s UEFA Europa League and UEFA Conference League.

The deal covers first-choice games in those two lower-tier competitions organized by European soccer’s governing body UEFA across the next three seasons, 2024-25 to the end of 2026-27.

Europa League and Conference League games are set to be available on the newly launched Nova Sport 5 for the next three seasons.

Currently, Europa League and Europa Conference League (that competition will be renamed at the end of 2023-24) action is shown across the Czech Republic by Czech TV, and by the AMC Networks media group (which has also renewed a selection of action from the next three seasons of these competitions, it was revealed late last month).

The latter operator also covers the top-tier UEFA Champions League during the current cycle.

From 2024-25, both the Europa League and the Conference League will expand in size, incorporating more teams and a larger number of games.
