Rangers fans who aren’t heading to Seville will be able to watch the Europa League final for free online, BT Sport has confirmed.

The broadcaster will make the match against Eintracht Frankfurt free to view via their website, YouTube channel and app.

It will also be available free for Virgin Media TV viewers on channel 532.

The action kicks off at 6:30pm on Wednesday May 18, with coverage hosted by Darrell Currie and pundits including Ally McCoist, Kenny Miller and Owen Hargreaves, Alex Rae and Stephen Craigan. Rory Hamilton will be on commentary and Emma Dodds reporting from the stadium.

BT Sport will also show the Europa Conference League final between AS Roma and Feyenoord on May 25 and the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid on May 28.

Jamie Hindhaugh, Head of BT Sport, said: “We’re delighted to round these European campaigns off by making the live action from all three finals available for anyone to watch for free on the BT Sport website, app or YouTube channel.”

No Ibrox beam-back

Rangers fans have been left disappointed, however, that the club won’t be screening the historic match at Ibrox.

When the club reached the UEFA Cup final in Manchester in 2008, thousands attending a beam-back event in Glasgow.

An update from the club said that they did not have sufficient staffing resources to make the screening possible.

It read: “Whilst we understand the wish for supporters to be able to gather at our home for this momentous occasion, the club does not have sufficient staffing resources to be able to host such a large event due to the number of qualified staff and personnel required to travel to Spain to assist in the safe delivery of the final. We could not safely operate an event of this size without the presence of our safety team, all of whom are required in Spain.

“Given the significant UEFA regulatory demands, we are required to deploy our full safety team in Seville, given the anticipated travelling support. This was not an easy decision but it is vital we ensure the safety of the team, management and travelling support in Spain.

“We acknowledge and understand the disappointment and frustration of non-travelling supporters, but there was no safe way of delivering a matchday screening.”

Pubs and sports bars across the country have announced events around the game, while Vue cinemas will also be screening the game.

Seville fanzones

For those heading to Seville without match tickets, the club confirmed a fan viewing area in the city’s Estadio La Cartuja – the stadium in which Celtic lost to Porto in the 2003 UEFA Cup final.

There will also be a ‘fan meeting point’ in Alameda de Hércules for those supporters with a ticket for the final.
