RTÉ, Virgin Media and Premier Sports will each broadcast all six Republic of Ireland UEFA Nations League games in 2022.
The Republic of Ireland’s campaign begins away against Armenia on 4 June, and the team will then host Ukraine in the Aviva Stadium on 8 June.
In total, all six Republic of Ireland UEFA Nations League matches will be covered in Ireland by RTE, the nations’ free-to-air public service broadcaster.
RTÉ Group Head of Sport, Declan McBennett, commented: “RTÉ Sport is delighted to bring the UEFA Nations League games to the audience free to air given the growing momentum behind the Men’s international team and the significance of the games with Scotland, Armenia and in particular Ukraine.
“Combined with our coverage of the Women’s national team, the Under 21’s qualification campaign and the domestic game it visibly demonstrates our commitment to keeping key sporting moments available to the widest possible audience.”
In the UK, Virgin Media are also set to broadcast games from the tournament. Specifically, the company will show France, Germany, England, Spain, Belgium and Italy matches, as well as highlights compilations of Republic of Ireland matches.
For Premier Sports, the deal looks to further its investment in Scottish football, adding to existing broadcast deals around the Scottish Cup and the Premier Sports Cup.
Scotland play on 11 June in the Aviva followed by the away game against Ukraine which will provisionally take place in Łódź, Poland on 14 June.
Finally, in September Ireland will travel to take on Scotland and finish the campaign at home against Armenia.
