Liverpool will face Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League at St Jakob-Park in Basel from 6pm on May 18. Sevilla are chasing a third Europa League title, while Liverpool are on a quest for glory after missing out on the Premier League, FA and League Cups this season.
On May 28, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will face off for the Champions League trophy. The game will be shown live from 6pm at the San Siro.
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.”
