Sky Sports will be the only place to see the story of the Premier League unfold, from the potential crowning of the champions to the battle for European places and the scramble among teams looking to avoid relegation.

Throughout April, every Manchester City match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. This means that if – and most likely when – City win the league in April, the only place to watch it live will be on Sky Sports.

It’s sweepstake season with The Masters golf at Augusta and The Grand National horse racing, offering customers a wealth of iconic sport and the chance to line their pockets in the process.

The Formula 1 season continues as drivers take to the track in Bahrain, China and Azerbaijan this April, with Lewis Hamilton looking to fend off the challenge of rivals old and new as he defends his world title.

Here’s a guide to all the action across Sky channels – and terrestrial TV – this month.
