ITV announced last week it had agreed a deal with Setanta to broadcast highlights of all of England’s remaining World Cup 2010 away qualifying matches.
Highlights of each game will be broadcast on ITV1 from 10.30pm on the evening of the game. The remaining games are against Belarus on 15 October, Kazakhstan on 6 June 2009 and Ukraine on 10 October 2009. All of England’s home World Cup 2010 qualifiers will be shown live on ITV1 — beginning with England v Kazakhstan on 11 October.
ITV holds the rights to broadcast live coverage of all of England’s competitive home fixtures until 2012 in addition to selected friendlies — the first of which is England’s international against Germany on 19 November.
