French pay-TV operator Canal Plus has struck a deal with UEFA to secure the rights to the Europa League, formerly the UEFA Cup, for the next three seasons.

The deal will allow Canal Plus Sport to broadcast 205 matches, including 190 live matches. The new format of the competition will allow Canal Plus Sport to air a flagship programme on Thursday nights built on the template of Canal Plus’s coverage of Champions League matches on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Other matches will be aired by Sport Plus and Foot Plus.
