ITV has regained the rights to broadcast England men’s team matches, Sports Mail understand.
The broadcaster has agreed a four-year deal to take over from Channel 4 when their deal expires in 2024.
ITV will broadcast all men’s matches outside of major tournaments.
The channel has a long association with the English side. It shared its coverage with Sky Sports until Channel 4 stepped in last year to take the rights to the Nations League and European qualifiers through to next year’s European Championship. ITV will then share rights to the tournament with the BBC before their deal comes into effect.
The move has been welcomed by ITV bosses and comes at a time when the broadcaster is at the forefront, with rights to the Rugby World Cup underway in France.
