Burnley’s Europa League play-off trip to Olympiakos will be screened on Eleven Sports after a late deal was struck.
The Clarets’ visit to Istanbul Basaksehir in the previous qualifying round was not broadcast in the UK or Ireland but the newly-launched streaming service has stepped in to show Thursday’s game in Greece.
The club will also be hosting a screening in the Turf Moor fan zone for local supporters who have not made the journey to Athens.
Eleven Sports already has agreements in place to show the Primera Division, Serie A and the Eredivisie. The new online broadcaster also had the the rights to the US PGA Championship earlier this month.
