Autumn action on BT Sport!

Autumn action on BT Sport!

  

Club rugby is back on BT Sport as the new Premiership season arrives, while there’s loads of football – including the Premier League – in the coming month plus MotoGP, UFC, cricket and more


By Chris Miller, Writer

Note: TV channels are currently subject to wholescale schedule changes, so bookmark to keep up to date with the latest changes.

 

With the advent of football’s UEFA competitions and the new Premiership rugby union season, the BT Sport schedules are even more packed than usual with thrilling live sport. There are a dozen huge rugby clashes on your screens in the coming weeks, plus two full rounds of European football, with nine British clubs in action across the three UEFA tournaments. There’s also extensive coverage of domestic football leagues around the world, from France to Australia.

 

The MotoGP season is hotting up too with three crucial races as the season moves from Europe to Asia, while there’s action from Major League Baseball and college football in the US, the Canadian Football League, Aussie Rules’ AFL (including the men’s Grand Final and the start of the new women’s season), and the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters competition. For pugilism fans, there’s MMA, boxing and good old WWE.

 

All fixtures are subject to change, particularly if they take place in the UK towards the start of this period. Please note that BT Sport ESPN HD is now BT Sport 4 HD, and it’s in the same position in your Virgin TV channel list, CH 530. And remember, you can follow all the live action on BT Sport wherever you are in the UK, as long as there’s WiFi, 3G or 4G, thanks to Virgin TV Go.

Football: Premier League

Either side of the international break at the end of September, BT Sport has Premier League fixtures that should get any football fan’s mouth watering. So to speak. The north London derby is, of course, always a hotly contested match but with both Arsenal and Spurs looking in better shape than they have for a while, this could be the most significant clash between the two for years.

 

Later in the month Erik ten Hag takes his revitalised Man Utd side to Goodison for a rare Sunday evening game. But before all that, it’s the turn of Wolves to try to stop the combination of Kevin de Bruyne and Erling Haaland that has proved so effective already.

Football: UEFA Champions League


Matchday 1 was a mixed bag for the British teams: wins for Tottenham and Man City, but defeats elsewhere – including one for Chelsea in Zagreb that proved to be Thomas Tuchel’s last match as manager. Graham Potter takes charge of his first Champions League game at home to RB Salzburg, a match-up that should be a little less tricky… although you never know.

 

Liverpool aim to kick-start their campaign at home to Ajax, who thrashed Rangers in the first game, making Napoli’s visit to Ibrox even more of a must-win for the Glasgow club. Celtic travel to Warsaw to take on Shakhtar, Spurs are in Lisbon and Haaland gets an early reunion with his former club Dortmund at the Etihad.

Football: UEFA Europa League/Europa Conference League


Arsenal and West Ham both started their group campaigns with convincing wins, while Man Utd and Hearts suffered home defeats and Irish champs Shamrock Rovers claimed a creditable draw. Anything but a win for Man Utd against Sheriff (conquerors of Real Madrid in the Champions League groups last year) will surely put their qualification in jeopardy, while the Hammers and Hearts have tricky away ties too.

Matchday 3

Thursday 6 October, BT Sport

 

Football: National League

Boreham Wood hit the proverbial headlines with their FA Cup exploits last season, beating AFC Wimbledon and Bournemouth before losing to Everton, but their league form suffered and they slipped out of the play-off places to finish ninth. The Wood will be looking to rectify that this season but they’ve got off to a slightly weird start, winning their first four away games but picking up only two points from their first three at home.

 

However, with new Zimbabwean striker Lee Ndlovu – no relation to 1990s Coventry, Birmingham and Sheffield United forward Peter – already scoring regularly, they look set for a strong campaign in the National League this year. You can check them out at home to Maidstone on BT Sport on 1 October.

Football: Serie A


There are plenty of British players to look out for in Serie A this season. As well as England striker Tammy Abraham and former Man Utd defender Chris Smalling at Roma, Fikayo Tomori is a mainstay of Milan’s defence, while Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks is on loan at Sampdoria. Chelsea’s Wales international Ethan Ampadu is spending the season with Spezia and former Hearts defender Josh Doig is now at Hellas Verona, while his compatriot Lewis Ferguson is at Bologna and Club Brugge’s Scotland centre-back Jack Hendry is on loan at Cremonese.

 

Atalanta and Napoli have been the somewhat unexpected pace-setters at the top of the Italian league in its early stages. You can see every team in action this month on BT Sport.

Football: Ligue 1

PSG made the expected flying start under new boss Christophe Galtier, surging to the top of the table – but Marseille matched them and were level on points after six games, helped by the Parisians being held to a draw at home by Monaco. Lens, Lille, Lorient and Lyon – all the L clubs – got off to good starts too, although there’s a big test looming for the last of those as they face PSG at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais. Then there are two “L derbies” (as no one’s calling them) on 2 October.

Football: Primeira Liga

Braga have been the most successful Portuguese side outside the Big Three in recent years, winning multiple domestic cups and featuring in the group stages of the Champions or Europa League in 11 of the past 13 seasons. With their unusual ground, carved into the side of a mountain, they’re among Europe’s most distinctive clubs. Now managed by their former defender Artur Jorge, they visit the champions Porto this month as they make another attempt to crack the top three.

 

Benfica v Maritimo

Sunday 18 September, 6pm, BT Sport 4 HD (CH 530)

 

Porto v Braga

Friday 30 September, 9.15pm, BT Sport 3 HD (CH 529)

 

Football: A-League Men

Melbourne City (sister club of Manchester City) might have finished top of the table last season but it was Western United who won the championship with a 2-0 win over City in the Grand Final. And it’s those two clubs who kick off the new A-League Men season, as United – based not, as you might think, in Western Australia but west Melbourne – make the short trip to AAMI Park. Both will no doubt be among the contenders again this year.

 

If you’re watching the A-League live on BT Sport in the UK, familiar faces to look out for include former QPR and Southampton striker Charlie Austin (Brisbane Roar), ex-Arsenal and West Ham defender Carl Jenkinson (Newcastle Jets) and Sydney FC’s trio of Englishmen, Adam “Alf” LeFondre (Rotherham, Reading), Joe Lolley (Huddersfield, Nottingham Forest) and Jack Rodwell (Everton, Man City, Sunderland). Aston Villa and Man Utd legend Dwight Yorke is manager of south Sydney-based Macarthur FC.

Football: Canadian Premier League

In mid-August, Forge were sitting pretty at the top of the CPL, but a poor run of just one point from five games – including two defeats to Valour, who had a man sent off in both matches – allowed Atletico Ottawa and Cavalry to sneak above them. A win over Cavalry (in a slightly loopy match that featured three red cards) pushed them back up to second, but with five points between the top five clubs and only four advancing to the play-offs, it’s seriously tight at the time of writing. Ottawa v York on 9 October is the final fixture of the regular season.

 

York United v Halifax Wanderers

Motorsport: MotoGP


There are three huge races this week, as the season ends its European leg and moves to Asia, with just three more events left after the Thai GP – and there’s no doubt where the momentum lies. Francesco Bagnaia has won the last four GPs and with Fabio Quartararo able to claim only 39 in that time compared with the Italian’s full complement of 100, there are just 20 points between the pair ahead of the MotoGP of Aragon. It looks like a straight two-way fight for the championship, and Bagnaia will hope that he used up all his bad luck with those four retirements earlier in the season…

Motorsport: Rallying/Touring

Rallying (a time trial with one car at a time on a course) comes from New Zealand this month, while there’s rallycross (a race between multiple cars) action in Belgium. In DTM, a disastrous Nürburgring event for Mirko Bortolotti – crashing out of one race, classified 20th in the other – allowed Sheldon van der Linde to take the lead in the championship standings, and the South African will be desperate to cling on to it and claim his first title.

Rugby Union: Premiership


Leicester dominated the 2021/22 season, topping the table and winning the Premiership final – but they’ve lost key players this summer as George Ford left for Sale and Ellis Genge went to Bristol. Both those clubs will hope their new arrivals can galvanise their squads and boost their top-four chances, and you can see Genge’s new team in action against Newcastle and Exeter on BT Sport this month. With Saracens looking strong too, the Tigers may find this year much tougher than last.

Cricket: Caribbean Premier League

After finishing rock bottom of the six-team CPL last year, Barbados Royals turned their fortunes around to start the 2022 season with five wins out of five, as Kyle Mayers, Corbin Bosch and captain David Miller smashed runs for fun. Mayers also picked up important wickets, including four for four in two overs against St Lucia. They look favourites to make the final on 30 September, and that’ll keep co-owner Mark Wahlberg happier than a smart-mouthed teddy bear ever could.

Australian Rules Football: AFL Men’s + Women’s


In the AFL Men’s play-offs, Geelong Cats and Sydney Swans qualified automatically for the Preliminary Finals and will be the favourites to proceed to the Grand Final on 24 September – one of the biggest events in the Australian sporting calendar, and one you can see live on BT Sport.

 

There’s already been an AFL Women’s competition in 2022, thanks to pandemic restrictions and postponements, but another one gets going this month as Adelaide Crows start the defence of the title they won in April. If their 3am kick-off at Collingwood is a bit early (or late) for you, you can see them at a more reasonable time against local rivals Port Adelaide.

Baseball: Major League Baseball

Here’s a number: 2,430. That’s how many games in total there are in a regular MLB season – without even including the play-offs. For comparison, football’s Premier League has 380, the rugby union Premiership season 156, the Indian Premier League just 74. It’s a loooootta games.

 

The 2022 MLB season is in its final stretch now, with the Astros, Dodgers and Mets all looking well placed for postseason participation (the play-offs begin on 7 October). The Dodgers’ Mookie Betts, who’s among the league’s highest run scorers this year, is – fun fact – also a professional tenpin bowler with three perfect games under his belt.

Boxing


Denzel Bentley defends his British middleweight championship against Marcus Morrison at London’s York Hall. Bentley – who has 13 KOs in 18 pro fights – won the belt back in May, having lost it in 2021, and will be determined to hang on to it this time. Incidentally the undercard features the cruiserweight with arguably the finest name in world boxing: Ellis Zorro.

 

On 24 September, tune in to see the build-up to the all-British heavyweight clash between Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker at Manchester’s AO Arena, which is live on BT Sport Box Office.

Canadian Football: CFL

Winnipeg are head and shoulders above every other team in the CFL once again this season, qualifying for the play-offs first and looking almost certain to retain the Grey Cup. The final is in Regina this year, and Saskatchewan’s hopes of playing for the cup at their home stadium look distinctly dim. The Lions, led by star quarterback Nathan Rourke, and the Argonauts may stand a chance of stopping the Blue Bombers – but we wouldn’t bet on it.
