BT Sport's Twitter account confirmed the news yesterday, saying they will be live streaming the Europa League and Champions League finals on YouTube.

BT Sport have announced that they will be broadcasting the Champions League and Europa League finals for free to "absolutely anyone" in the United Kingdom.

The finals will kick-off this year on Wednesday, May 24 with Manchester United's quest for European glory in the UEFA Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm. In addition, BT Sport is debuting 4K and VR coverage of the games.

The Women's Champions League final, meanwhile, will be contested by Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain at Cardiff City Stadium on June 1st, with the men's final between Real Madrid and Juventus to follow two days later at the National Stadium of Wales. The Europa League and Champions League finals were also shown on the video site by BT for free past year. We will also be making the UEFA Champions League final available live via multiple 360°cameras.

BT Sport will be capturing the entire match at Csrdiff's Millennium Stadium, in which Juventus will take on Real Madrid, in 360 degrees, allowing fans that didn't manage to grab a ticket to still get at least a taste of what it would have been like to actually be there.

The Dragon Hotel in The Kingsway, Swansea, has 96 of its 106 rooms booked by the Football Association of Wales, and general manager Chris Honey-Jones said: "It is the first time we have had such a big event so close to us".

YouTube's senior director in EMEA, Stephen Nuttall, added: "Our users love football, so we're seriously excited to bring BT Sport's ground-breaking coverage of these two massive games LIVE on YouTube, for a second year running". People can enjoy it wherever they are, on any screen and experience new ways of watching the handsome game.
