UK broadcaster BBC has acquired the rights to the National Football League (NFL) in a new two-year deal.
As part of the deal, the BBC will show coverage of Super Bowl 50 on TV, radio and online, with a weekly highlights show to also feature from early November.
The channel will also show live coverage of all three NFL matches at Wembley Stadium in London.
“NFL has a growing fan base in the UK and I’m delighted that the BBC can bring it free to air for our audience,” said BBC director of sport Barbara Slater.
NFL UK managing director Alistair Kirkwood said: “We are very pleased and excited to be back on the BBC.”
