GolTV to Televise Celtic-Elfsborg UEFA Champions League Match Today

Today, GolTV will televise the UEFA Champions League Third Qualifying Round second-leg match between Celtic and Elfsborg at 1:45pm ET.

FOX Sports owns the US media rights to the Champions League, but with FOX Soccer in re-run mode (except for International Champions Cup games) and its coverage of the UEFA Champions League not scheduled to begin on FOX Sports 1 until the week of August 18, GolTV has been permitted to show this one match on its channel.

The Celtic match will be shown on replay at 10pm ET.

According to GolTV’s TV schedule for the next two weeks, this is the only UEFA Champions League match the network is scheduled to air as of press time.

GolTV is available on DirecTV and other select TV providers.
