Latest EFL TV selections revealed by Sky Sports for February and March

The latest EFL Championship and Carabao Cup Fourth Round TV selections have been revealed by broadcaster Sky Sports for November.

TV selections are bound to wind fans up, and you can see the reaction further down in this article, as always with these picks, bound to see some controversy.

As usual, no games from Leagues One and Two have been picked, leaving many fans questioning why they are being ignored.

EFL STATEMENT:

The following EFL fixtures have been selected for live broadcast on Sky Sports in November.

Two Carabao Cup Round Four have been chosen for live coverage. The London derby between West Ham United and Arsenal will be aired on Sky Sports, followed by a repeat of last year’s Final between Manchester United and Newcastle United.

In addition, four Sky Bet Championship games have been selected for live coverage in the month.

Carabao Cup
Wednesday 1 November – West Ham United v Arsenal – 7.30pm
Wednesday 1 November – Manchester United v Newcastle United – 8.15pm

As a result of both Manchester United and West Ham United being scheduled for Premier League action on Sunday 29 October and Saturday 4 November, their respective Carabao Cup Round Four will both take place on Wednesday 1 November to allow for the appropriate recovery and preparation time for the fixture.

Due to a number of Premier League games taking place on Sunday 29 October, options for live selections on Tuesday 31 October were impacted, meaning both fixtures will be broadcast on the Wednesday, in staggered kick offs.

Sky Bet Championship
Friday 3 November – Leicester City v Leeds United – 8.00pm
Sunday 5 November – Norwich City v Blackburn Rovers – 12.00pm
Friday 10 November – Blackburn Rovers v Preston North End – 8.00pm

Here’s how social media users reacted to the latest EFL and Carabao Cup TV selections revealed by Sky Sports for November…

@conner2712: What makes sky think 12 k.o is a good time for fans travelling 260 miles? #rovers

@HuggerV2:
… @SkyFootball mate… you fucking weapons
Norwich at midday on a Sunday???
PNE moved to a Friday?
Absolute piss take

@caridack: Sky is ruining football for the fans.

@ChrisMartin_93: That Norwich (a) move is absolute football terrorism #rovers

@LiamSully81: Lovely 5:30am start for away fans #rovers

@ThrowingAPaddy: Another I’ll now have to miss due to sky 😡😡😡😡 #rovers

@Adam_PVFC: Absolutely stinks of corruption

@DaleyBlindFC: Fucking stupid again. Sky massively taking the piss

@Peter_Mahoney_: 4 prem teams on TV for the Carabao Cup fourth round who we see play each other 4 times a year already. There’s a surprise 🙄

@jaywhitebcafc: You’d think league one and league two just didn’t exist

@JustDxm: It’s insane that they’re chosen to show two games on Wednesday instead of just choosing a game being played on Tuesday.

@bwfc_elliot: Honestly, if you’re struggling for games to fit on a Tuesday just stick Mansfield v port vale on there. How can that be worse than showing two games at the same time on a Wednesday?

@Danbro_01: Sky fucking hates league one and league two don’t they 🤣

@PaulSkinner88: Why do you let Sky have the rights for League One and Two and allow them to never show any games?

@My_Precious98: Did they forget there’s League 1 and 2 right
