Setanta scoops Champions League qualifiers

Setanta has announced it has acquired the rights to four Champions League third qualifying round clashes involving Liverpool, Arsenal, Celtic and Rangers.

Liverpool’s Champions League third qualifying round first leg fixture away to Toulouse on Wednesday August 15 will be exclusively live on Setanta Sports 1. This will be followed by Arsenal’s first leg trip to Sparta, Prague at 7.45pm the same evening.

Setanta will also feature Celtic and Rangers’ third qualifying round matches including its first leg visit to Spartak Moscow live on Setanta Sports 2 from 4.30pm on Wednesday August 15. Rangers second leg clash in Serbia against Crvena Zvezda will see them through to the group stages of the Champions League.

Michael O’Rourke, joint chief executive, Setanta Sports, said: "This is another coup for Setanta to acquire these crucial Champions League clashes. On the back of our debut Barclays Premier League season which kicks off on Saturday August 11, these games give football fans out there even more top class football on Setanta at a great value price."
