The change aims to provide more opportunities for top teams to compete and enhance the excitement of the tournament.

Additionally, UEFA's premier club competitions will no longer have a break in January, ensuring non-stop European club football from August to May.

SPNI has been the home of UEFA Champions League since 2017 and will continue to broadcast the final at Wembley Stadium in London, England. The network also holds the rights to UEFA EURO 2024, Bundesliga, Emirates FA Cup, and Roshn Saudi Pro League.

The renewal of SPNI's UEFA rights ensures that Indian audiences will continue to enjoy the highest level of European club football, featuring top teams and players like Real Madrid, Manchester United, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland.
