Source: CBS extends Champions League deal for $250M a year

By GRAHAM DUNBAR AP Sports Writer

GENEVA (AP) — The Champions League is staying on CBS in the United States for six more years.

A person familiar with the deal has told The Associated Press that CBS' parent company Paramount is paying $250 million a year to renew its prime European soccer rights through 2030.

That is an increase of 250% from the previous deal, starting in the 2024-25 season when a new competition format creates a 50% increase in the number of games.

In May, CBS drew a U.S.-record for a Champions League final broadcast in English.

The average audience was 2.76 million for Real Madrid's 1-0 win over Liverpool.
