BT Sport will show the UEFA Champions League final free-to-air, having also done so for the UEFA Europa League final.

Absolutely anyone can watch the showpiece game on Freeview channel 59, on BT.com, on BTSport.com or via the BT Sport YouTube channel (youtube.com/btsportofficial).

The Madrid derby takes centre stage on Saturday, May 28th, as Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid compete for the most prestigious prize in club football.

Gary Lineker and the BT Sport team will be on air from the San Siro from 6.30pm as Diego Simeone's men look to avenge their dramatic 2014 UEFA Champions League final defeat to their bitter rivals.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored in the final two years ago, insists he will be fit and raring to go despite an injury scare in the build up, as Real chase an unprecedented 11th Champions League crown.

Atletico, who have twice finished as UCL runners-up in their illustrious history, will look to go one better and take home the trophy at one of European football's most illustrious stadiums.

John Petter, chief executive of BT Consumer, said: “We’ve always said we wanted to give top quality sport back to the people and making the UEFA Champions League and Europa League finals free to everyone in the UK does this in a big way.

"We’re also bringing BT Sport to a new generation of younger sports fans who view their entertainment online, through social media and on their mobile devices. 

"We plan to make these finals the most social sports broadcast ever, with lots of exciting content in the build-up and on the night across YouTube, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Vine.

“BT Sport has pioneered the way when it comes to new technologies and digital platforms, whether that’s live Ultra HD, our immersive BT Sport App or red button functionality on YouView," he added.

"Today’s announcements will take this further, and there’s plenty more that we’re looking at, whether that’s more programming in live Ultra HD, new App developments or our recent Virtual Reality trials at the FA Cup semi-finals and NBA.”
