Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports said: "Live 3D coverage of the Carling Nations Cup further strengthens our portfolio of international football that already includes crucial Euro 2012 qualifiers for the home nations and the Republic of Ireland.”
Niall Phelan, Molson Coors country manager for Ireland added: "We are delighted to have Sky Sports on board as the main broadcast partner throughout the UK and Ireland. Fans can expect a feast of international football when the Carling Nations Cup kicks off in Dublin’s Aviva stadium in February."
