champions league, europa league, guide

The Champions League and Europa League tournaments are now getting to the business end and here’s all the latest info fans should know.

There’s been plenty of footballing drama already this season, but things are about to get ticked up a notch.

With a few international breaks now behind us and Europe’s major leagues in full swing, here’s where things start to get tricky, tense and stressful for the clubs that earned qualification for the continent’s biggest annual club tournaments.

Plenty of English outfits managed to lock down direct entry to both the Europa and Champions League Rounds of 16, but before we get there, there’s a round of knockout Europa playoffs too.

Manchester City, looking to defend their maiden Champions League crown, have hit a couple of recent domestic hurdles and have drawn one of this season’s Champions League’s most engaging stories at the Round of 16 too, meeting FC Copenhagen.

So for those figuring which football is streaming where, here’s what you’re looking for.

In Australia, streaming platform Stan Sport has broadcasting rights, like last season.

Unlike other inferior streaming platforms (we won’t name names), you can pause and rewind live games on Stan Sport; functionality means that if you decide to watch the action on delay the next morning, you don’t have to wait for the full event to finish and then re-uploaded. It sounds simple, but it’s not universal across sport streaming platforms, unbelievably.

Stan Sport is Stan’s add-on package, costing an additional $15 a month. The platform also has all the major rugby (including the Rugby World Cup), tennis and various other events.
