Sky is set to show up to 100 more Premier League matches per season as part of a new four-year deal.

It has secured the broadcast rights to show a record number of Premier League fixtures meaning Sky Sports live coverage will increase by 70% from the start of the 2025/26 season.

Sky has been awarded four packages meaning more than three quarters (80%) of live broadcast Premier League matches will be on Sky Sports and customers can expect at least four live games weekly.

Multiple matches

According to Sky, the line up of Premier League football it will broadcast will include at least 215 live games each season.

It will also mean multiple live matches on a number of weekends on Sundays at 2pm will be offered by Sky for the first time.

Furthermore, it will also include most of the Christmas season fixtures with Boxing Day Premier League football back on Sky.

Significant increase

Sky Business hospitality managing director Damian Saunders said: “There’s nothing quite like live sport when it comes to bringing people together and this announcement is a fantastic result for our customers.

“Pubs and clubs with Sky will now be able to show 80% of live Premier League broadcast matches in their venues from the start of the 2025/26 season.

“This is a significant increase in the number of Premier League matches available, bringing certainty to their business and giving their customers the game they love until the end of the decade.”
