2021 is a big year for Stan. Early this year, the streaming service joined the sports streaming niche with the launch of Stan Sport, coinciding with the Super Rugby AU season. Today, Stan announced a new partnership with the Union of European Football Associations, significantly expanding its sports offerings.
Every UEFA Champions League match starting 12 August 2021 will be broadcast by Stan Sport, kicking off with the 2021-22 UEFA Super Cup match between Chelsea and Villarreal, winners of the previous season’s UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. Stan’s broadcast time will be announced soon.
Prior to this, Stan Sport is already the go-to for diehard rugby union fans, offering every match of the Super Rugby AU, Super Rugby Aotearoa, Trans-Tasman tournament, and so many more. Wimbledon and Roland Garros tournaments also stream on Stan Sport, ad-free, live, and on-demand.
Stan’s new multi-year deal with UEFA finds the Australian streaming service locking down broadcast rights for every match of the UEFA Champions League for the next three seasons. Stan Sport users will also be able to stream every match of Europa League, Europa Conference League, Youth League, and the UEFA Super Cup.
