The BBC has secured a late deal to broadcast this year's European Athletic Championships this weekend.

The event takes place in Rome from this Friday, June 7 to Wednesday, June 12 and will see Europe's elite track and field athletes face off in one of the final competitions before this summer's Olympic Games in Paris.

The agreement with the EBU is for four years - up to and including 2027 - and also covers the 2026 Championships in Birmingham, the 2025 and 2027 European Athletics Indoor Championships and the annual European Cross Country Championships from 2024 to 2027.

Philip Bernie, the interim director of BBC Sport, said: "Adding the European Athletics Championships to our athletics portfolio is great news for audiences, who get to watch the best athletes in the world regularly on the BBC.

"The European Athletic Championships in Rome promises to be a high class event, and we can't wait to see how Team GB performs in the build up to the Paris Olympic Games which will be live on the BBC later this summer."

The deal further boosts the BBC's extensive portfolio of athletics rights, which also includes the Olympic Games, World Athletic Championships, UK Athletics Major Events series, Diamond League, London Marathon and the Great North Run. body check tags ::
