More Championship games announced to be shown live on Sky Sports as the race for promotion hots up nicely with relegation also to come.
Another three games have been listed for broadcast later this month, adding to the excited and much anticipated batch already announced recently. Some fans are already preparing to watch bein sports NZ so that they don’t miss out on any of the action.
Clubs are set to play out their remaining five fixtures for the 2019/20 season, with so much at stake, and even potential points deductions for various clubs yet to be handed out, should it happen.
So who what are the new additions to be televised by Sky Sports? There is a triple-header across successive days in the race for the Premier League starts with second-placed West Brom hosting fourth-placed Fulham on Tuesday the 14th of July with kick-off at 5pm.
Brentford, who currently sit third in the Championship table, are still in the hunt for an automatic promotion place, will host playoff hopefuls Preston at the soon to be demolished Griffin Park in front of the Sky Sports cameras on Wednesday the 15th of July, kicking off at 5pm.
And then it’s attention Leeds on Thursday the 16th of July who hope to finally end their 16-year wait of returning to the top flight, when they face Yorkshire rivals Barnsley in a third 5pm kickoff.

EFL quaking in their boots that they are about to lose their big money spinner from the TV deals – trying to put pressure on us to bottle it by sending us out last each round of fixtures.
Hope we win all our last games and will not miss the corruption one bit!

Honestly don’t see this as a disadvantage at all. We know what we need to do for the games so the lads will be focused.
If we play before they can always think we’ll hopefully someone will drop points if we don’t get a result

Getting less and less value for this ifollow pass ?
I’d rather watch it in sky to be honest, although sky’s commentary isn’t as funny! ?
