Optus aims to expand its soccer coverage by seeking to gain the Australian broadcasting rights to a number of domestic competitions in Europe. Optus will broadcast every match of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, while it has held the English Premier League rights since 2015. There is also speculation that it is set to gain the EUFA Champions League broadcasting rights, which are currently held by Al Jazeera-owned BeIN Sports Australia.
