The streaming service will show UEFA Champions League matches featuring Italian sides every Wednesday night.

Amazon has won the rights to exclusively broadcast 16 UEFA Champions League matches on Wednesday nights live in Italy, for three seasons from 2021-2024.

We are delighted to offer our customers in Italy the Wednesday night top matches from 2021 onwards. We know that Italian football fans are among the most passionate in Europe and we’ll be working hard to deliver a fantastic football experience that brings them close to the action.”
