News UK wins FA Cup and England match highlights

News UK has won the rights to show video clips of FA Cup and England friendly matches in a deal that will last four seasons, until autumn 2018.

Following on from January's announcement that News UK has secured the rights to show near-live clips of Barclays Premier League matches from August 2013, it was confirmed today that the group has also won the rights to screen similarly near-live highlights from the FA Cup starting in August 2014.

Clips from FA Community Shield matches, 14 England Senior Friendly matches, all televised England U21 matches as well as England Development Team matches will also be available on The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times’ websites from August.

Subscribers to The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sun – which will go behind a paywall on 1 August – will also be able to access the clips on their smart phone or tablet.

Mike Darcey, News UK chief executive, said: "This is a significant enhancement of our sports offering to all our readers, and will help transform the way football is enjoyed across a range of platforms.

"Compelling content is at the heart of the distinct offering which will help News UK deliver its goal of securing a sustainable future for our world-class journalism."
