THE Football Association of Wales has announced a four-year deal that will see their games broadcast on streaming service Viaplay.

The agreement starts in 2024 with the men's team's qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup and Euro 2028 shown online along with the Nations League and international challenge matches.

Viaplay, who will also show Scotland and Northern Ireland fixtures, will launch in the UK later this year with pricing to be announced.

An FAW statement stressed that the agreement was through UEFA's centralised National Association media rights sales process.

However, there is the prospect of Wales games no longer being shown free to air on S4C.

A deal for the national rugby team saw autumn fixtures shown on Amazon Prime, who initially allowed games to be shown on S4C until they launched their own Welsh language service this season.

"When announcing this new four-year partnership from 2024, Viaplay has made a commitment to making Cymru matches available with Welsh language commentary," said an FAW statement.

Chief executive Noel Mooney said on Twitter: "We are in discussions with them re Welsh language, promotion of domestic game internationally, free to air matches of the Cymru national teams etc. Will update ASAP."

He then responded to a Tweet with: "To be clear, the Association don't sell the rights to our men's international matches but we will engage with Visaplay to get the best outcome for Welsh football once we actually meet them."

International games are currently shown live on Sky Sports and S4C with highlights on BBC Wales.

An S4C spokesperson said: "S4C is disappointed by the news from UEFA. S4C is in talks with the Football Association of Wales to further clarify the situation regarding Welsh language commentary."
