Posted Filed under

Having already broadcasted over a dozen battles between the Premier League’s current top six teams, Sky Sports will air another three epic clashes this month.

Sky Sports’ Head of Football, Gary Hughes, commented: “Sky Sports is the place to see the remaining big fixtures as the Premier League heads towards its dramatic conclusion.”

He added: “There is so much still to play for at both ends of the table and we will be there every step of the way.”

The race for a top four finish is hotting up and Sky Sports is your only way to see Liverpool and Arsenal again this season.

It’s looking like football fans can expect nail-bitingly close run-ins at both ends of the table, kicking off with three massive games this weekend, as Everton take on Liverpool in the Merseyside derby this Saturday lunchtime, followed by a tense game between Middlesbrough and Swansea on Super Sunday to avoid the drop, finishing off at the Emirates as Man City face off with Arsenal.

Presently in prime position to win the league according to betting sites, Chelsea head to Old Trafford on Sunday 16 April. Later this month on Sunday 30 April, the north London derby comes to Sky Sports from White Hart Lane.

April will see eighteen more Premier League matches air on Sky Sports in April and fans can also access highlights and goals from all these plus 380 Premier League matches using the Sky Sports Football Score Centre app.

There’s good news for golf fans too, as Sky Sports viewers can look forward to watching the world’s best golfers for free in the opening round of the British Masters later this year. A whopping 10,000  free tickets have been made available as part of Sky Sports Thursday. The first round of the British Masters takes place at Newcastle upon Tyne’s Close House on Thursday 28 September.

Lee Westwood, the former World Number One, commented: “The British Masters really has become the ‘people’s tournament’ over the last couple of years and with the tickets being available this year on a first come, first served basis it means everyone has the opportunity to come along, particularly if they haven’t been to a golf tournament before.”

He added: “The people in the north east love their sport, and we’ve already had a lot of interest in the tournament, so I’m sure we will get some great support at Close House in September.”
