Sky Sport have secured the rights to the 2018 and 2022 football World Cups as part of an eight-year football deal with FIFA.

The deal also includes all men's and women's U-17 and U-20 World Cups, as well as the Beach Soccer, Futsal, Confederations Cup and Women's World Cups between 2015 and 2022.

"It's terrific to have these amazing events locked in for the next eight years," said Richard Last, SKY's Director of Sport.

"We witnessed how magical the FIFA World Cup can be with SKY's coverage of Brazil 2014, and I'm sure the next two events in Russia and Qatar will be equally as impressive."


Sky are also screening this year's FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand 2015, kicking off with the opening match between New Zealand and Ukraine on Saturday 30 May.
