Cymru matches to remain free-to-air

The Red Wall will be able to continue watching Cymru senior men’s internationals on free-to-air television until 2028 as S4C strike a deal with Viaplay. 

Welsh language coverage will include the next two UEFA Nations League campaigns for 2024/25 and 2026/27, the FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifying matches and the UEFA EURO 2028 qualifying matches.

International friendly matches will also be part of the deal that will see at least 40 live games on S4C.

“It’s great news that the games are going to be available for everyone to watch on S4C. It’s also a terrific boost for the Welsh language,” said Cymru Captain Aaron Ramsey.

“The goal for us as a squad is to reach the finals of the Euros and the World Cup, and we hope that S4C will share our success with the viewers.”

Recently, S4C also announced that they will broadcast all of Cymru’s qualifying matches for the 2025 UEFA U21 Championships in Slovakia. 

Noel Mooney, FAW CEO, added: “Our partnership with S4C has been a cornerstone to the growth of Y Wal Goch and we are so happy that Cymru’s Men National Team matches will be free-to-air for everyone. 

“I want to thank Viaplay, who have been key in this collaboration to ensure that our games are available to everyone.”
