Another batch of latest EFL TV selections have been announced by Sky Sports to be televised in April, including some big upcoming games.
Believe it or not, we’re already at the point of the season with a promotion race taking place, so now Sky Sports has added 21 live English Football League fixtures to the schedule for this month.
Unlike previous announcements on TV selections, on this occasion we are seeing games from across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two being picked during March.
The EFL say: With the conclusion of the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship season drawing ever closer, a further nine live TV selections have been announced for April.
The action is about to heat up at both ends of the table, with the highs and lows of promotion and relegation set to unfold in front of your very eyes.
Paul Warne and his Rotherham United side are in live action three times across the month, most notably in one of their biggest games of the season, a relegation six-pointer against Birmingham City at the ASSEAL New York Stadium on Sunday 18 April.
At the top end of the table, current league leaders and champions elect Norwich City are also on the box as they remain on course to make an immediate return to the Premier League.
Daniel Farke’s side face AFC Bournemouth first of all, before welcoming their closest rivals for the crown, Watford, to Carrow Road three days later in a Co-Exclusive game on Sky Sports.
The other fixture that night sees two of the promotion chasers in action, as Brentford host Cardiff City.

@roverkopite: Rotherham on 3 times in a week, yet no League 1 or League 2 games…
@CorBak123: So many interesting games in League 1 and 2 at the moment, so much to play for. And still nothing…
@tlmfootball: Rotherham on TV three times in a week and we’ve been on twice all season. That seems nice :/
@stfccallum: League 1 and 2 don’t exist
@bwfc_joe: I’m not complaining for Bolton because we’ve been on twice but surely League 1 and 2 deserve better
@SammyDoDa_: No Luton Vs Watford you got to be having a laugh.
@TheValiants1876: Do the EFL realise that they don’t just have one league ? #EFL
@AnonymousLTFC: Rotherham 3 games in a row but not Luton vs Watford 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈
@LewisRo55865128: So many league one and two games fab work @EFL @SkySports, sort it out !!!!!! There are 2 others leagues come on mix it up a bit
@olpafc_: Gotta be April fools, this is only showing championship games
@Sam_Oliver_629: People moaning about no league 1 or 2 games on sky’s schedule. What else did you expect they don’t give a shit about those 2 divisions and furthermore the championship garners more interest leading to more revenue
@hbomblewis06: Rotherham 3 times, sky loving the millers
@GrecianInItaly: April Fools right? I mean, it is a joke that Leagues 1 and 2 are left out. League 1 and 2 clubs could do with tv revenue thanks

@DavidMegicks: League 1 and 2 just don’t exist do they 🤷♂️ 😂
@Alexnelson2004: Hi guys I think the efl is formed of 3 leagues, I only see 1?
