Newcastle United v Fiorentina will be shown in Italy by DAZN Italia while the Villarreal match will be broadcast in Spain by Movistar+ and DAZN Spain. Both matches will also be shown in the MENA region by SSC and Shahid online.

In addition, OGC Nice have the rights for France, while matches will also be shown by TVM in Malta, beIN Sports in Australia and New Zealand, ESPN in the USA, S Sport in Turkey, VG in Norway, Aftonbladet in Sweden and Sport in Ukraine.

NUFC TV will bring supporters extended post-match highlights of the men’s team matches against Fiorentina and Villarreal, as well as Newcastle United Women’s showpiece match.’
