In what should come as good news for football fans in India, the Carabao Cup final between Manchester City and Aston Villa will be telecast live on TV in India. Vh1, Vh1 HD and Colors Infinity are the channels airing the all-Premier League clash. JioTV will provide the live stream.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at London’s Wembley Stadium at 22:00 IST on Sunday (March 1).
While the official website has listed Viacom18 and JioTV as the broadcasters in India, football fans in the country have been able to watch the marquee matches from the competition on Vh1, MTV and Colors Infinity in the last two seasons. The case in point being the live broadcast of last season’s semi-final between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea on Vh1, the same channel which, along with MTV in India, aired the 2018 and 2019 Carabao Cup finals.
None of the third-round matches this season, involving the likes of Manchester City, the defending champion, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea, was shown on TV in India. The subsequent rounds of fixtures, including Liverpool’s last-16 match against Arsenal and Chelsea’s fixture against Manchester United in the same round, were broadcast live on the Vh1 and Colors Infinity channels.
