BT reached an agreement with UEFA in 2013 to exclusively show Champions League matches from this season, beating rivals BSkyB and ITV according to the Guardian.

The channel will also show some Premier League and Europa League football this year.

Van Persie is currently trying to qualify for the Champions League group stages with Fenerbahçe. The 31-year-old striker made his debut in the goalless draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in the preliminary play-off round first-leg tie.
