Australian telecommunications company Optus has reached a deal with YouTube and Twitter to livestream a selection of UEFA Champions League and Europa League soccer matches.

As part of the deal, a total of 10 matches will be shown on the platforms between February and April with six Europa League games to be simulcast on Twitter and four Champions Leagues matches broadcast on YouTube.

Corin Dimopoulos, Head of TV and Content at Optus, said: “These exciting collaborations with YouTube and Twitter mark a major opportunity to leverage the world’s biggest international club competitions and amplify our incredible live programming of these tournaments.”

“Optus Sport is illustrating continued innovation by opening our Optus Sport broadcasts through our YouTube and Twitter channels. We will continue to showcase our exceptional live productions and at-ground presence which we have successfully delivered since securing the rights of these two competitions this season.”

Optus, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singtel of Singapore, is Australia’s second biggest telco. Its rights portfolio includes the English Premier League and it will offer the FIFA Women’s World Cup kicking off this June.
