ITV have reportedly won back the rights to show England men’s matches.

The broadcaster is understood to have agreed a four-year deal to take over the responsibility from Channel 4.

ITV will take over the rights when Channel 4’s agreement ends in 2024, according to the Daily Mail.

The broadcaster will show all the men’s matches outside of the major tournaments such as the World Cup and Euros.

The channel is no stranger to showing England matches having shared the coverage with Sky Sports until last year.

Channel 4 then took the rights for the Nations League and European Qualifiers until Euro 2024.

When the tournament starts ITV will then share the coverage rights with the BBC.

The report claims that the move has been “hailed” by bosses at the broadcaster.

The Three Lions are expected to qualify for the tournament in Germany next year.

Gareth Southgate‘s side have won four from their opening five qualifiers leaving them top of the group.


Last time out England were held to a 1-1 draw by third-placed Ukraine.

During Channel 4’s coverage of the match fans were left fuming as a technical blunder left them watching a black screen.

England followed up that result with a 3-1 win over Scotland in a friendly match at Hampden Park.
