Management at Channel 5 were ecstatic this morning as they relieved themselves of overpriced mediocre European football.
As ITV signed a 3-year deal to transmit footage of games no-one cares about, Channel 5 released a statement on the matter through a spokesman.
Brian Conlon, Head of Putting Progammes in Some Sort of Order, said: "Jesus Christ, thank God that we've finally gotten rid. This has been messing up the schedules ever since I can remember."
ITV will show most of the matches on ITV4 and ITV.com, although if more than one viewer is detected matches may be elevated to ITV3.
