BT Sport has extended its deal with MP&Silva for exclusive rights to live Italian top flight football until 2017-18.

BT currently holds rights to live Serie A in the UK and BT Sport has signed a contract to add another three years to the current deal. BT Sport will have the rights to show up to 380 exclusively live matches a season.

The deal means that Italian football fans can continue to enjoy watching clubs such as AC Roma and AC Milan attempting to wrestle the league title from current champions Juventus on BT Sport.

From August, BT Sport will also offer exclusive live midweek football from the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “Serie A attracts some of the best players in the world and is a fantastic, competitive league featuring some of the legendary teams of European folklore, such as Juventus, AC Milan, Inter and Roma.”
