The start of another eagerly anticipated football season is just around the corner and Sky Sports continues to bring licensees more of the games that matter. And what a line up it is.

Only Sky Sports brings: 

  • 4 top flight matches in the opening weekend featuring Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool
  • 24 live Premier League matches in the first two months of the season
  • Coverage of all 20 teams, with 14 matches involving last season’s top four
  • 116 live Premier League matches across the season
  • Plus, 127 live Sky Bet Football League matches – up from 92 last season
  • The only place to watch more of the games that matter to British football fans across Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday

And it’s not just the Barclays Premier League and the Sky Bet Football League. Sky Sports brings pubs & clubs up and down Ireland action from the Capital One Cup, SPFL and the Scottish Cup. With competitive matches throughout the season, the intense rivalry helps to attract more fans through the door, to spend more money.

In the Premier League, Sky Sports is showing every single team at least once in its opening 24 matches. Sky Sports will kick off at Stamford Bridge, home of the champions Chelsea, as they take on Swansea, plus there’s some massive head-to-heads in the first two months of the season, including Manchester City v Chelsea.

Liverpool will be hoping for a strong start to life after Steven Gerrard, but they face difficult tests early on against Arsenal (24 August, 8pm) and Manchester United (12 September, 5.30pm), while Premier League new boys Bournemouth visit Anfield on 17 August (8pm) intent on causing an upset.
