BT Sport’s UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League coverage available at Vue Edinburgh Ocean

Prepare for the final stages of European football’s top competitions exclusively live on BT Sport via the Big Screen at Vue

Football fans will get an August bonus of live sport with the UEFA Champions league and UEFA Europa league on the big screen this month, as BT Sport’s exclusive live coverage gets underway at Vue Edinburgh Ocean.

BT Sport recently announced plans for the exciting prospect of ‘Club 2020’ as European football’s premier club competitions return. Club 2020 will provide fans with some much-needed knockout tournament fever in August.

Vue Edinburgh Ocean will be host to six special screenings of BT Sport’s coverage with Gary Lineker, Jake Humphrey and James Richardson presenting the action and support programming live from the BT Sport studio.

Joint favourites Manchester City kick off its UEFA Champions League coverage as they look to defend a 2-1 first-leg lead against mighty 13-times winners Real Madrid on Friday 7th August.

A weekend of scintillating fixtures is promised with the tournament’s other frontrunners Bayern Munich in action in Germany against Chelsea on Saturday 8th August, looking to build on their 3-0 advantage after the first-leg at Stamford Bridge.

And not forgetting the other ties as superstar Neymar’s Paris St-Germain take on Italy’s Atalanta, and perennial contenders Atletico Madrid face up to emerging German side RB Leipzig on August 12th and 13th.

The UEFA Europa League’s quarter-finals will also be showing at Vue Edinburgh Ocean on 10th and 11th August, with some top class football on the cards featuring the winners of this week’s last 16 ties.

The full list of games showing at Vue Edinburgh Ocean are listed below:

UEFA Champions League: Man City vs. Real Madrid
Friday 7th August 2020 8pm

UEFA Champions League: Bayern Munich vs. Chelsea
Saturday 8th August 2020 8pm

UEFA Europa League: Man Utd vs. Copenhagen or Basaksehir
Monday 10th August 8pm

UEFA Europe League: Olympiacos/Wolves v Sevilla/Roma
Tuesday 11th August 8pm

UEFA Champions League: Atalanta vs PSG
Wednesday 12th August 2020 8pm

UEFA Champions League: RB Leipzig vs. Atletico Madrid
Thursday 13th August 2020 8pm

As well as this roster of the some of the biggest sporting clashes of the year, a selection of classic family and fan-favourite films will also be back on the big screen where they belong.

Families can look forward to getting lost in magical worlds, by re-visiting the tale of the boy who lived, in Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, or watching the adventures of two teenage elves in Onward.

Crowd pleasers such as Bridesmaids will also be available for those in need of a good laugh, and dancing shoes can be worn for the return of fan-favourite La La Land.

And for film-buffs missing the complete experience, cinematic classics such as Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back and Dunkirk will be screening, rounding off a slate of big screen entertainment that provides something for every taste.

Robert Smith, General Manager at Vue Edinburgh Ocean, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming in football fanatics and are anticipating an excellent atmosphere as Europe’s top sides look to finish their delayed seasons in style.

“Fans can look forward to enjoying the action knowing that their safety is front of mind. Vue Edinburgh Ocean will be operating under measures including carefully managed customer flow systems, enhanced cleaning protocols and state-of-the-art booking systems to ensure our customers are back in the big screen enjoying great content in the safest possible way.”


Bruce Cuthbert, Connectivity and Commercial Sport Director, BT’s Consumer division, said: “With the addition of Vue Cinemas as a partner, and the increasing availability of the BT Sport app on new platforms and devices, BT Sport has never been more widely or easily available to sports fans.”

Tickets for the matches are available from myvue.com
