Live on Sky Announces More EFL Fixtures For January

Published

on

Whether you’re looking to watch the Premier League, EFL, the FA Cup or any other major sport, you can now stream your favourite matches live from anywhere in the world thanks to Live on Sky. The EFL is the latest to join the club after it was announced that Sky Sports will have exclusive rights to live games in the UK.

Sunderland AFC vs Bor

Despite their poor form in the past few weeks, Sunderland AFC are still in contention to make it into the League One Play-Offs. The Championship season is now halfway through and there are some exciting games on the horizon.

The EFL is set to announce its fixture list for the upcoming season on June 23. It will include the entire Play-Offs as well as 15 Carabao Cup matches. There are also at least three Papa John’s Trophy matches to be played.

Sunderland AFC have also confirmed that their scheduled game against Fleetwood Town on January 2 has been postponed. The Black Cats are also set to take on Burnley on matchday 17 of the Championship. It will be a crucial clash for both clubs. The winner will go on to claim the top spot in the East Lancashire derby.

Huddersfield Town vs Milton Keynes Dons

Earlier this week Sky Sports announced more EFL fixtures to be shown on TV in January. These include the season opener for Sunderland against Derby County. And the first of the league’s new midweek matches. And it’s the first Carabao Cup tie for Sunderland, too.

As for the new Sky Sports deal, it is worth remembering that it will run from the start of next season until May 2024. This represents a 35 per cent increase on the current arrangement. And it also includes the Carabao Cup and Checkatrade Trophy. The EFL also announced that it had agreed to a new TV rights deal worth PS595 million with Sky.

Of course, the new deal also includes Sky Sports’ commitment to show all EFL games live for at least five weeks. And the EFL is also committing to give fans five weeks’ notice of any changes to fixture dates.

Arsenal v Manchester City in the FA Cup at Wembley

Against Manchester City at Wembley, Arsenal managed to come out on top in a 2-1 win. Despite having their noses in front, Arsenal were still not satisfied. They were looking to re-claim their spot in the Champions League.

Arsenal made a positive start, despite being largely unlucky, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring the first goal. After a slide-rule pass from David Luiz, Aubameyang finished well, shooting past Ederson from a tight angle. The Gabon international has now scored more goals than Nicolas Pepe in this season’s Premier League.

Manchester City’s performance was largely a shadow of their brilliant FA Cup triumph last month. Their first half was shaded by several defensive errors. David Silva had a great game, working well with Kevin De Bruyne. However, the City midfielder missed several opportunities, including a first-half goal.

Premier League and EFL games are being postponed due to positive Covid-19 tests

Several Premier League and EFL games are being postponed this weekend due to positive Covid-19 tests. These outbreaks have led to 18 Premier League matches being postponed or cancelled so far this season. The EFL has also confirmed three matches scheduled for 26 December will not go ahead.

During the recent testing period, 90 positive tests were recorded among players and staff at Premier League clubs. The previous high for positive results among players and staff was 42.

Aston Villa and Burnley’s fixture was the latest casualty. The Omicron strain of Covid-19 was found in the Villa squad, while the Omicron strain of Covid-19 was also found in the Burnley squad.

Leicester City’s game against Tottenham was also postponed. A number of players in the Tottenham squad have also tested positive for the COVID-19, while the club’s backroom staff have also tested positive for the disease.

Sky Sports’ exclusive rights to live EFL football in the UK

During the last five years, Sky Sports has held TV exclusive rights to live EFL football in the UK. The deal, which runs until May 2024, is worth US$765 million. It’s a 35 per cent increase on the previous deal.

Sky Sports will show 138 League and Play-Off games each season. They will also air 15 Carabao Cup ties. In addition, they will show Semi-Finals and Finals of the Papa Johns Trophy.

In addition to live games, Sky Sports will also show highlights of matches. They will also air one match from the fourth and fifth rounds.

All Championship clubs will be able to show their own matches online, which will be available on the clubs’ websites. This will be in addition to all League One and League Two matches being shown online.
