Sky Sports to bring pubs Premier League action
Sky Sports is bringing publicans 12 more live Premier League matches in March as the battle for the title intensifies, as well as Scottish Premiership clashes.
Matches between Premier League contenders Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United will be shown live in Sky Sports venues.
David Rey, managing director of Sky Business, said, “Sky Sports continues to give landlords the top Premier League picks, with 21 of our 22 February and March fixtures featuring a top six side.
“This is great news for licensees who can look forward to attracting customers into their venues with some fascinating showdowns, including a massive top of the table clash between Manchester City and Liverpool at the end of March.”
Sky Sports is more than halfway through its biggest ever season of Premier League football, with 70 live matches shown so far.
Scottish teams also in action
Publicans can also show customers the third Ladbrokes Premiership clash of the season between Celtic and Rangers in March with Sports.
