What to watch on Sky Sports in September

  

From big ties in the Premier League to the most-anticipated women’s boxing match of all time, Sky Sports have you covered this September

The weather might be (slightly) cooling down, but it’s all hotting up in the world of sport. With the FIFA World Cup hurtling into existence in November, the football fixtures are coming fast. The Premier League has already thrown up a load of surprises this season, and there are some juicy ties on Sky Sports this month featuring tussles at the top and bottom. There’s also the chance to watch every Championship side across two glorious days, while (most of) England’s heroic Lionesses kick off the Women’s Super League with national pride replaced by club loyalties.

 

Elsewhere, rugby league’s Super League reaches its conclusion in September as table-topping St Helens look to make it four out of four championships. Formula One continues its globe-trotting parade with stops in Italy and Singapore. And The O2 is the place to be to watch the biggest ever match in women’s boxing, Claressa Shields v Savannah Marshall… but the next best thing to be being there is your sofa for a ringside seat.

 

Remember, you can follow all the live action on Sky Sports wherever you are in the UK, as long as there’s WiFi, 3G or 4G, thanks to the Sky Sports app. Simply download the free app from the Apple app store for iPad or iPhone, or from Google Play.

Here’s all the action you can enjoy live on Sky Sports in September…

 

Football: Premier League


We’re well into the Premier League season with a picture of the season ahead beginning to form. It has been a strong start for Manchester City and Arsenal, but while the Citizens are well used to this position, how will Mikel Arteta’s Gunners fare in this new territory? The City v Spurs tie looks like the pick of the televised bunch, with arguable City’s toughest test so far this season.

 

Arsenal, meanwhile, travel to a Brentford outfit who embarrassed Manchester United (before their resurgence) – something they’ll be wary of. And don’t miss Chelsea v Liverpool: after patchy starts to the season, it’s a must-win game for both Blues and Reds.

Football: Scottish Premiership

Following their first Old Firm game of the season (which Celtic won comfortably, 4-0), the two Glasgow sides are in action on Sky Sports across consecutive weekends as they look to get ahead in the hunt for the title. First up, Rangers travel north to the Pittodrie Stadium to face an Aberdeen side fighting to find some consistency even in this early part of the season. Celtic then face a St Mirren team who started the season with two defeats but have begun to find some form just as the Bhoys roll into town. Two fascinating encounters you won’t want to miss.

Football: EFL Championship


Great news: all the Championship sides play live on Sky Sports across two glorious football-laden days in September. So far this season, there has been an expected surge from the newly relegated sides all vying for an immediate return to the riches of the Premier League. But Sheffield United (relegated in 2021) are seeking to break up Norwich, Burnley and Watford’s grip at the top of the table after missing out on promotion in the play-offs last term.

Football: Women’s Super League

After the roaring success of the Lionesses this summer, it’s set to be the biggest, most-watched season in the history of the WSL. Already many clubs have announced record pre-sales and, if you’re new to the league, Sky Sports are dishing up two mouth-watering opening ties. Spurs and Man Utd kick off the season with many of England’s heroes like Alessia Russo and Ella Toone likely to be on show. Man City’s Chloe Kelly, who scored the winner in the Euros final, will hope to be back to face Arsenal after missing the recent World Cup qualifiers through injury.

Football: Bundesliga

Once again, 17 teams are lining up to stop Bayern proceeding to their umpty-ninth title in a row. The Bundesliga may be a bit of a power imbalance, but the match atmosphere and the attacking qualities on show – not to mention frequently ropey defending – definitely make it one of the most entertaining leagues to watch. This month the contenders on TV include Wolfsburg under new manager (and former Bayern boss) Niko Kovač as well as Borussia Mönchengladbach, who now have former Norwich head coach Daniel Farke in charge.

Football: MLS

There’s plenty of MLS coverage on Sky Sports in the coming weeks and with the regular season ending in early October, it’s coming up to crunch time. Gareth Bale’s LAFC are leading the way and you can check on the Welshman’s progress as his team take on Dallas – although Wales fans may be mainly hoping he can avoid injury ahead of the World Cup, with the MLS play-offs going right up to 5 November. Also on this month is the Hudson River derby between NYC and Red Bulls.

Golf


Rory McIlroy returns to the BMW PGA Championship for the first time since 2019 in search of a second career victory at the Wentworth Club. But the World Number Four will have his work cut out against the likes of Jon Rahm, who finished runner-up to McIlroy in 2019, plus current US Open Champion Matt Fitzpatrick, still riding high following his maiden Championship title at The Country Club.

 

Elsewhere, there’s action from the LPGA Tour, while the Italian Open at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club – the same venue as the 2023 Ryder Cup – will give us an early glimpse into how the European and United States players may tackle the course next year.

Motorsport: Formula One


After the fireworks of last season, the highly anticipated round two of Max Verstappen v Lewis Hamilton hasn’t really materialised. Red Bull have dominated the first half of the season while Mercedes have found themselves well off the pace in a car that has continued to raise eyebrows ever since it was first unveiled. There are signs following the Dutch Grand Prix that Team Mercedes can finish 2022 strongly to set themselves up for a proper title tilt in 2023. But as for this year’s championship, it’s now Verstappen’s to lose.

Cricket: Men’s Test Match


England have largely stuck with the same side for this third and decisive Test against South Africa at The Oval, with the series level at 1-1. It’s not hard to work out why: the home side were at their scintillating best at Old Trafford last month, with captain Ben Stokes putting in a stonking performance, while James Anderson, at 40, continues to be one of England’s best performers. The only omission is batter Jonny Bairstow after the Yorkshireman’s unfortunate golf course accident.

 

It now all comes down to this. If England can get close to their performance in the second Test, it’s all set up for them to claim a hard-fought victory.

 

England v South Africa – Third Test

From Thursday 8 September, 10am, Sky Sports Cricket/HD (CH 514/504)

 

Boxing

The O2 plays host to one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, and ten years in the making – it’s the biggest fight in the history of women’s boxing. There is no love lost between Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall and it’s a rivalry that has been simmering since Marshall beat the US fighter at the 2012 Olympics. Both women are undefeated in their professional careers and Shields will throw down her WBC, WBA, IBF and The Ring middleweight belts as she looks to strip Marshall of her WBO title on home turf. The winner becomes the undisputed world middleweight champion.

 

Claressa Shields v Savannah Marshall

Saturday 10 September, 7.30pm, Sky Sports Arena/HD (CH 518/508)

 

Rugby Union

Another month, another bucketload of top action from the southern hemisphere, including the four-team international Rugby Championship taking place from Buenos Aires to Auckland via Durban and Sydney (and, um, other venues). After four rounds, each of the four sides has won two and lost two, so any team could emerge winners – who can edge it in the final games?

 

For those who fancy an early start, New Zealand’s National Provincial Championship provides entertainment on Friday and Saturday mornings.

Rugby League: Super League XXVII


It has been a long, long season (it began in February!), but it all comes down to this. St Helens may have finished the season top of the table, but that means practically nothing at this point – as last season’s table-topping (but eventual championship runners-up) Catalans Dragons know only too well. The Saints have been brilliant all season, and a fourth consecutive championship seems firmly on the cards. But in this knock-out play-off format, it’s all to play for until the final, final whistle. Game on!

The winners of Panthers v Eels and Sharks v Cowboys will go straight on to the preliminary finals, while the losers will get another chance in the semi against the elimination match winners. It’ll all make sense in the end… Penrith will be strong favourites, having dominated the regular season. The NRL Women’s continues with a triple-header for the hardcore fans, starting just after 3am on 18 September.

NFL

American football is back! Fans can tune in on Friday 9 September, when the defending champs the LA Rams host the Buffalo Bills for the season opener, and for plenty more coverage over the coming months. At this stage many eyes will be on the top draft picks, such as the Jaguars’ Travon Walker and the Jets’ peerlessly named Sauce Gardner, to see if they can affect their teams’ fortunes.

 

Among the new potential stars in action on Sky Sports this month are the Chargers’ offensive guard Zion Johnson and Chiefs cornerback Trent McDuffie. There’s also a new name in the NFL for 2022, as the franchise briefly known as the Washington Football Team officially becomes the Commanders.
