    The FA Cup is set to be broadcast exclusively on free-to-air television from the 2021-22 season.

    According to a report published in the Times, ITV have reached an agreement with the FA over a four-year package from the start of the 2021-22 campaign that will guarantee a larger television audience for the oldest national football competition in the world.

    The move will see ITV join the BBC as rights holders for the competition, with the BBC having the rights to broadcast up to 18 live matches a season, in addition to the highlights and online highlights, while ITV will gain the larger package on offer and will broadcast up to 30 games as the senior partner.
