C4 scores rights to FIFA Club World Cup final
February 1, 2022
Chelsea’s bid to become FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2021 Champions will be live on Channel 4 – if they make the final.
Channel 4 has won the terrestrial television rights to show the match which will be live on Channel 4 from 4pm on February 12th if Chelsea win their semi-final. Their semi-final, against opponents yet to be decided, on February 9th, will be shown live on E4 with coverage starting at 4pm.
Channel 4’s Head of Sport, Pete Andrews, said: “This is one of the few major honours to have eluded Chelsea so it’d be great if they can make history live on Channel 4. We’re delighted to be bringing top-flight football live on free to air terrestrial television, let’s just hope The Blues can go all the way.”
A highlights programme will also be shown in the evening on Channel 4 on February 12th.
