Fancy a week’s worth of non-stop top-notch sport? Of course you do – and Sky Sports has you covered…
From Friday 16 November on Sky Sports
If, like us, a freak mishap involving a chainsaw and some bees has grounded your private jet and scuppered your plans to attend the week’s best sporting events around the world, fear not! Sky Sports is here to ensure that you can catch each and every one from the comfort of your sofa.
Settle down for top-drawer cricket in the Caribbean, a host of NFL fixtures from the US (and beyond!), superstar tennis at London’s O2 Arena and a darts tournament like no other. All these telly treats await in what’s sure to be a scintillating week of sporting drama.
Intrigued? Then read on to find out more about what’s going on and where you can see it…
ICC Women’s World T20 World Cup
Continues Friday 16 November, 8pm, Sky Sports Cricket/HD (CH 514/504)
Following their 2016 win, the West Indies will be keen to retain their title on home territory – although three-time champions Australia or 2009 winners England might have something to say about that! The next few days will see some crucial clashes, as one of the favourites, New Zealand, take on both the mercurial Pakistan and outsiders Ireland, while England face Sri Lanka, and Australia look to beat India.
2018 ATP Finals
Continues Friday 16 November, Sky Sports Arena/HD (CH 518/508)
Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are once again heading to the O2 for the end-of-season showpiece that is the ATP World Tour Finals. And while Juan Martin Del Potro and Alexander Zverev possess the potential to cause an upset – especially so following Rafael Nadal’s withdrawal from the competition due to injury – it’s hard to look past the top two, with Djokovic in particular looking in the form to wrap up his sixth Finals trophy.
18-22 November, Sky Sports Action/HD (CH 517/507)
Admit it, there’s nothing quite like the sound of two helmeted beasts clattering into one another on an American football field. A good thing, then, that there’s a whirlwind of NFL action heading to Sky Sports this week! In Sunday’s late-night game, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking for revenge for last season’s playoff defeat as they visit the Jacksonville Jaguars.
On Monday the action comes from Mexico City, as Kansas City take on the LA Rams in the final match of the 2018 International Series. And Thanksgiving means there’s loads of live action on Thursday too, with the Detroit Lions welcoming the Chicago Bears, Washington travelling to Dallas and an all-Southern affair as the New Orleans Saints host Atlanta. Did someone say touchdown?
Grand Slam Of Darts
Continues Friday 16 November, 7pm, Sky Sports Action/HD (CH 517/507)
Can anyone steal this tournament away from high-flying Dutchman Michael Van Gerwen? “Mighty Mike” has bagged the prestigious trophy for three consecutive years, beating Peter Wright in the final last year, after trouncing six-time champ Phil Taylor along the way… and Van Gerwen looks to be in the same imperious form in 2018. The chasing pack – which in this event includes players from both the PDC and the BDO – will have to come up with something special to ensure MVG leaves Wolverhampton empty-handed.
