Government moves to ‘future proof’ British sport’s free-to-air crown jewels –

Major sporting events such as the Olympics, the FA Cup, the World Cup, the Rugby World Cup final, the Grand National and Wimbledon will continue to be shown on free TV channels under Government plans to safeguard the UK’s sporting heritage.
