Wouldn’t it be nice if all the sporting matches were on the same platform? It would be, but that’s unfortunately not the reality in our streaming landscape.

When it comes to the Champions League in Australia, you could once find games over on Optus Sport. That has since changed, however. Stan Sport has since taken over the broadcasting rights for the Champions League, so this is where you will find all matches, including the final game, for the 21/2022 season.

On June 28, 2021, Stan announced that the service landed a multi-year partnership agreement with the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). This includes the UEFA Champions LeagueUEFA Europa LeagueUEFA Europa Conference League and UEFA Youth League, and the UEFA Super Cup for the next three seasons.

So get your Stan Sport membership up and running if you’re hoping to catch any games from these comps in the coming seasons. A Stan Sports add-on is an additional $10 per month on top of your regular Stan membership fee (which ranges from $10 to $19 per month). You can sign up for a seven-day free trial if you like, however.
