More games that matter on Sky

Sky Sports is to offer an unrivalled schedule of live Premier League fixtures from August, providing viewers with more of the games that matter, more of the best experts and more of the best analysis.

Last Updated: 05/09/14 at 09:57

Having broadcast 49 of the 50 most watched Premier League matches last season, Sky Sports has announced a schedule that includes all of last season’s top four at least six times and every club at least three times. 

Viewers can also enjoy seven live Manchester United fixtures - including Louis van Gaal’s toughest tests against Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Only on Sky Sports can viewers see the opening matches of last season’s top four teams, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. Premier League champions City begin their title defence away to Newcastle United.

Following Sky’s best ever Premier League season, viewers can enjoy 43 live matches - at least three live fixtures every week - before the end of November:

There will be more of the games that matter including:

Manchester City v Manchester United

Manchester City v Liverpool

Arsenal v Manchester United

Manchester City v Chelsea

Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester United v Chelsea

Chelsea v Arsenal

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal will all be shown at least six times and every club will be on at least three times with a match coming from all 20 Premier League grounds.

And in an added bonus, all seven Sky Sports channels will be to every Sky, Virgin Media, TalkTalk and UPC household at no extra cost, on Saturday August 16. This means more than 15 million homes can enjoy a full day of unrivalled live sport from Sky Sports, including football from the Sky Bet Championship, Scottish Premiership and Eredivisie as well as England Test cricket, golf from Europe and the USA, rugby union and ATP tennis. Sky Sports customers can also get 2 years' free unlimited broadband.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said: “49 out of 50 of the most popular Premier League games were shown on Sky Sports last season and a quick look at our opening schedule of fixtures shows Sky Sports is still the place to go for more of the games that matter. With more football than ever before, including the launch of our fantastic new European football channel Sky Sports 5, our customers have never had such an unrivalled choice of football. And for the first time, we’re inviting every Sky, Virgin Media, TalkTalk and UPC household to enjoy all seven Sky Sports channels at no extra cost for the opening day of the season.”

Gary Neville, Sky Sports analyst, added: “I can’t wait for the new season and I can’t wait for Sky’s live matches. There are so many stand out fixtures here to look forward to, including must-see head to heads, big tests for the top four and all the promoted sides. We’ll see all the teams at least three times, visit all the grounds and tell the complete Premier League story throughout the opening three months and beyond. I can’t wait to get back into the studio.”
