The third batch of latest EFL TV selections have been revealed by Sky Sports and set to be televised later on in October.
The new season is in full swing for the 2021/22 season, and now the broadcaster has added many more live English Football League fixtures to the schedule for the next few months.
Unlike the usual previous announcements on TV games, this occasion sees teams from across the Sky Bet Championship and League Two being picked.
Sky Sports has announced 11 games to be shown live on Sky Sports Football in October.
There are 10 games already set to be shown live on Sky Sports Football in September, and there are now 11 more set to be shown live in October.
Stoke and West Brom meet for a Friday night clash under the lights at the bet365 Stadium on Friday, October 1, while the next day will see another early frontrunner in Fulham head to Coventry for a Saturday lunchtime match.
Then, following the October international break, the Championship will return with a bang with three huge rivalries across three days.
On Friday October 15 it is West Brom vs Birmingham at The Hawthorns, the following day we head to west London for a lunchtime clash between Fulham and QPR, then on Sunday, we move on to South Wales, where Swansea take on Cardiff.
Then, on Saturday 30 the two early pace-setters in the Championship, Fulham and West Brom, meet at Craven Cottage in a 12.30pm kick-off.

Fans reacted with the latest EFL TV selections for October revealed, see what they had to say below…
@jodyburry: Finally Swindon on sky 👍🏻 #stfc
@Willh1985: FFS I hate sky at times!
@ben_k_99: This is truly awful. 3 times in 1 month? Fuck you @SkySports
@Brookeyyy___: That’s piss poor from Sky and the EFL
@AmbroseBarnaby: Stupid Sky Sports made Coventry away impossible now for me
@ShadowLancer29: Three games at 12:30? That’s bizzare.
@TomRogers24: I swear we don’t do well in early kick offs?
@Tendou1879: 3 Saturday 12:30PM kick-offs in one month. Yeah. Fuck off. I’m glad I didn’t renew this year.
@VinoFiIipino: What the actual fuck, I’m barely awake at 12pm as it is
@hutchie100 (Fulham fan): Gosh sky are truly dreadful. 3 -12.30 kick offs in a month.
@bobcainffc1971: 12.30pm the worst KO time of the week. Surely that West Brom fixture could have been switched to Friday night. Coventry now requires a 7.30am start. Think er indoors was right to opt for the Forest drive. #ffc Why can’t @EFL Saturday TV games KO at 5.30pm. But we will be there.
@Cayden65585821: 12:30? pricks, for the fans that have a big trip to Fulham and away games, this is a complete joke
@Daciakish: Hate the 12:30 kickoff. Was expecting two of these but not in the worst time slot of all. Will miss West Brom match, thanks @SkySports
@SCFCShenton: All 3 Stoke games are at home, piss
@MarvellousMR_: Sky Sports Coventry
@TnsCov: Tell sky to blow it out their backside
@Adam_Hooper10 (Coventry fan): Awful KO time 😖
@Danterry1411: Sky tv is fucking shit
@DanBacon777: Two games from Leagues 1 & 2 in two months 🙄🙄 same old Sky
@TheTilehurstEnd: No Reading games on the main Sky Sports coverage in October. In all fairness these picks were probably made days ago, before we signed a variety of Premier League stalwarts. They can’t get it right every month.
@callum1512_: League one and two is a thing? Honestly just give the rights to bt if your just gonna put champ games on
