Non-subscribers will be able to view the match in Kiev on May 26th via YouTube, the BT Sport app and the company's website.

There is, of course, increased interest in this year's final as Liverpool become the first English team since Chelsea in 2012 to take part in UEFA's showpiece event. That includes the Champions League final round qualifiers and the Super Cup along with all highlights rights to both Champions League and Europa League.

There's also a rare occasion where a half-and-half scarf is an acceptable memento of the occasion!

And they'll now be able to tune in online for free.

Real are going for their third consecutive Champions League win, which hasn't happened in the Champions League era.

"To have Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final is fantastic", said Pete Oliver, BT Consumer's marketing and sales managing director.

RTÉ announced that it has secured rights to first choice Champions League games on Tuesday evenings for the next three seasons.

Previously, RTÉ had the Irish rights for Wednesday night Champions League matches and the final. "The final is set to be a classic and we can't wait to bring it to football fans across the United Kingdom". "The sports rights market continues to evolve and RTÉ is now competing against major worldwide companies both here and in the United Kingdom, both free and subscription, for the right to broadcast premium sports events in this country".

"We are delighted to be partnering for the third year running with BT Sport to make these games available live to YouTube users across all of our platforms".

Only the submitted name and comment will be displayed in public, while the rest will be kept private (we will never share this outside of ISPreview, regardless of whether the data is real or fake).
