Sky Sports adds more fixtures to February schedule
13th December 2016
Sky Sports has added to its Premier League schedule as the season enters its second half, including another massive head-to-head between Chelsea and Arsenal and the Manchester derby.
Sky Sports has already shown 50 live Premier League games, helping clubs to pull in the crowds. Title leaders Chelsea are on a winning run with London rivals Arsenal just three points behind. The victors will land a crucial blow in the race for the title although Arsene Wenger’s side haven’t won at Stamford Bridge since 2011.
Festive Football is in full swing on Sky Sports with the biggest head-to-heads, including Man City v Arsenal on Sunday and ‘Mersey Monday’, when Liverpool’s trip across Stanley Park to take on Everton gets the Monday Night Football treatment. Sky Sports venues can look forward to even more in 2017 as the Premier League heads into the second half.
Sky Business managing director David Rey said: “Sky Sports continues to be the home of Premier League and clubs can look forward to a packed 2017 of quality action to keep football fans entertained. With some huge fixtures lined up for February including Chelsea v Arsenal, another Manchester derby and the EFL Cup Final, there’s plenty of opportunities for clubs to get customers through their doors.”
The month’s opening weekend of fixtures pits Manchester City against Swansea while reigning champions Leicester City take on Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. Goals and highlights from these and all 380 Premier League matches can also be accessed via the Sky Sports Football Score Centre app, available to everyone in a Sky Sports WiFi venue.
On Saturday 12 February, Arsenal welcome Hull to the Emirates, and the following day sees Chelsea face a tricky trip to the North West to face Burnley, while Swansea City entertain Leicester. The round’s matches are completed with Manchester City’s trip to the south-coast to face Bournemouth on Monday Night Football.
February finishes with a bang as Pep Guardiola’s City side set out to complete a league sweep of rivals United following their end-to-end 2-1 victory at Old Trafford in September. Elsewhere Tottenham take on Stoke and Leicester face Jurgen Klopp's free-scoring, title-chasing Liverpool on Monday Night Football.
Clubs can look forward to a sensational 2017 on Sky Sports, with the conclusion of the biggest ever Premier League season, the EFL Cup Final, the Lions’ tour of New Zealand, PGA and European Tour golf, England cricket, the 2017 Formula 1 season and much more.
