A fabulous month of action on Sky Sports!

A fabulous month of action on Sky Sports!

  

The next few weeks are packed with exciting sport including F1’s Monaco Grand Prix, the Football League play-offs, the final of the Indian Premier League, golf’s PGA Championship and much more

By Chris Miller, Writer

We know it’s vulgar to talk about money, but it’s hard to avoid it this month in the sporting world. The Monaco Grand Prix is always a highlight of the F1 calendar, its tunnels, tight corners and unique road circuit providing a tough challenge for the drivers – but it’s the hugely glamorous backdrop of casinos, yachts and high-end jewellery that draws the attention. But we’re never distracted by all the glitz. There’s serious racing going on.

 

In football, May features the game generally acknowledged to be the world’s most lucrative match: the EFL Championship play-off final. We’re old enough to remember when it was known as the £30 million game; now, estimates of its value range up to £265 million, such are the riches on offer for the team that reaches the Premier League. (Fun fact: the loser of the Wembley final receives the gate receipts to make up for missing out on all that moolah.)

 

There are also millions on offer for the winners of the Indian Premier League, the PGA Championship and the NBA. But of course, this isn’t what sport is about – it’s about the contest, the skill, the commitment, the glory! The money does help a bit, though.

 

Here’s all the action you can enjoy live on Sky Sports this month. Don’t forget to bookmark this page for monthly updates – and 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 Virgin TV Go. Simply download the free app, which is free to all Virgin TV customers and is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows 10 and PC/Mac.

Premier League


It’s been a tremendous season, partly because of the sheer quality of the two teams at the top of the Premier League, and partly because of the sheer unpredictability elsewhere. Almost anyone can beat almost anyone in this division, and with just a handful of games left there’s plenty to be decided, including almost all the European qualifying places and the final relegation spot.

 

You just know it’s going to be thrilling – and Sky Sports will be showing multiple games on the final day so you can keep up with everything important that’s happening.

Sky Bet EFL

Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t like the play-offs? We sure haven’t. This end-of-season winner-takes-all knockout jamboree invariably serves up great entertainment, and this year will surely be no different. Can Wycombe bounce back to the Championship at the first time of asking? Can Nottingham Forest continue their surge from bottom of the table in September all the way to the promised land of the Premier League? Find out on Sky Sports this May.

Cinch Scottish Premiership


The final two rounds of Premiership fixtures are likely to see Celtic crowned champions for the 52nd time – but as they say, it ain’t over till it’s over. Could Dundee United or Motherwell trip them up? It’s improbable, but if so, defending champs (and Europa League finalists) Rangers will be waiting to pounce.

Celtic v Motherwell

Saturday 14 May, 11.30am, Sky Sports Football/HD (CH 513/503)


Bundesliga

The top three is decided, and there’s only a very slim chance of things changing at the bottom – but the race for European places in the Bundesliga still has plenty of intrigue. RB Leipzig are favourites for the Europa League spot but could be caught by Freiburg, who are having a fine season (and will face Leipzig in the German Cup final), while Union Berlin and Köln are just behind them. On the final day of the league season, you can follow Freiburg’s fortunes against Champions League qualifiers Leverkusen live on Sky Sports Mix.

 

Bayer Leverkusen v Freiburg

Saturday 14 May, 2.20pm, Sky Sports Mix/HD (CH 520/510)


MLS

Philadelphia have been among the pace-setters in MLS’s Eastern Conference this season, scoring some notable results including a smash-and-grab 2-0 away win over last year’s MLS Cup winners New York City. Their match against Phil Neville’s Inter Miami is part of Sky Sports’ live coverage of MLS this month, as is a top v bottom clash in the Western Conference between LA FC and San Jose.

 

You can also watch the Seattle Sounders, who recently became the first MLS team to win the CONCACAF Champions League, against Minnesota.

Formula One


Lewis Hamilton is probably looking forward to the Monaco Grand Prix as much as anyone: he lives in the principality so even if his Mercedes continues to disappoint on the track, at least it won’t take the seven-time world champ long to get home… We’re enjoying the tussle between Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc so far and expect it to continue in Barcelona and Monte Carlo this month.

W Series Racing


The W Series started in 2019 as a way to increase female participation in motorsport. Of course being forced off the track for reasons in 2020 didn’t help the cause, but it returned last year and is going from strength to strength, with races available to enjoy live on Sky Sports.

 

If you’re looking for a successful British sportswoman to support, you’ll find one here – 23-year-old Jamie Chadwick has won both championships contested thus far and is already ahead of the pack this year (driving for a team backed by former Olympian and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner). But there’s plenty more British interest in the series, with six UK drivers on the grid in all.


Indianapolis 500

One of the most famous motor races in the world returns in 2022 for its 106th staging and you can see it on Sky Sports Action. A couple of drivers will be familiar to F1 fans: Juan Pablo Montoya is racing for the Arrow McLaren team, while Romain Grosjean makes his Indy 500 debut with Andretti.

 

Six former winners are scheduled to start the race, including 2021 champion Hélio Castroneves in what’s likely to be the 46-year-old’s final Indy 500. Can he hold off challenges from the likes of Scott Dixon and Pato O’Ward to triumph again and go out on a high?

Test Cricket


Ben Stokes, appointed England Test captain at the end of April, begins his new role at a tricky time for his team. With one win in the last 17 Tests and an unsettled line-up, they could probably do without facing New Zealand, who won the inaugural Test Championship last summer.

 

Having been born in New Zealand probably won’t help Stokes much but he’ll be confident that bowlers such as James Anderson and Chris Woakes, always so impressive in English conditions, will get on top of the batsmen and give England a chance of success in the three-match series.

Indian Premier League Cricket

“Giants” is a fine name for a sports team, as outfits from San Francisco, New York, Sydney and Huddersfield will attest. But it wasn’t good enough for 2022’s new IPL team from Lucknow, who decided they needed to be the Super Giants. It turns out they were right though, as they’ve led the way since early on in the tournament, thanks to runs from KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock and the brilliant bowling of Josh Hazlewood.

 

So can the Super Giants make it to the knockout stages in their debut season? Rajasthan Royals, for whom England’s Jos Buttler has been bashing boundaries for fun, are among the teams trying to stop them this month.

Vitality Blast T20 Cricket

A quickfire half-century from wicket-keeper Jordan Cox helped Kent Spitfires see off Somerset in last year’s Vitality Blast final – and the two teams face each other again in South Group in the first televised match of the 2022 tournament. The North Group teams will be looking to improve on 2021’s showing, when no northern side reached the semis. Finals day is on 16 July at Edgbaston.

Golf


The second major of 2022 comes around this month, with the PGA Championship starting on 19 May at Southern Hills club in Oklahoma (having been moved from the Trump National in New Jersey). Last year Phil Mickelson became the oldest golfer to win a major with victory at Kiawah Island in South Carolina.

 

He’ll be back to defend his title, while the top-ranked likes of Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa and Dustin Johnson are likely to be challenging. Tiger Woods’ comeback continues too, as the four-time champion has been named in the 156-strong field.

Rugby League: Betfred Super League XXVII

St Helens have led the way this season as they look to achieve their fourth consecutive Super League title – but they’ve not had things all their own way. Alongside the dominant victories including a 42-8 crushing of Hull KR, there have been defeats to Castleford and the debuting Toulouse. Perhaps they’re vulnerable after all? Wigan and Catalans have been keeping pace with them at the top of the table, and there are some fascinating match-ups in the coming month.

Rugby League: NRL

Melbourne Storm and Penrith Panthers have been the teams to watch so far this season, surging to the top of the NRL table with some dominant displays, the stand-out being the Storm’s 70-10 win over NZ Warriors in which they scored 13 tries. Full-back Ryan Papenhuyzen went over for two of them and kicked five conversions and two penalties, and it wasn’t even his highest-scoring game of the season – he nabbed 28 points against the Bulldogs. However, he’s been ruled out of this month’s mouth-watering clash with the Panthers with injury. Could this make the difference? Find out live on Sky Sports Arena.

Southern Hemisphere Rugby Union

As in rugby league, the Antipodean rugby union competition sees a big clash between the top two this month when the Brumbies host the Blues at Canberra’s GIO Stadium. Brumbies fly-half Noah Lolesio has been ultra-reliable with his kicks so far this season, averaging more than 11 points a game, but Blues’ Stephen Perofeta is not far behind. Also on Sky Sports this month you can see rugby from South Africa, as the Cheetahs face the Sharks in the Currie Cup Premier Division.

Basketball

Leicester have dominated the BBL this season, losing only two regular-season games, and the Riders will be firm favourites to see off the London Lions in the grand final. In the women’s competition it’s the Lions who will be expected to win, having topped the table, while Sevenoaks Suns play the role of underdogs. Both finals are live on Sky Sports Arena on 15 May. Across the Atlantic the NBA play-offs continue, with the top teams battling to make it to the finals starting on 2 June.

Darts

Jonny Clayton didn’t join the ranks of the PDC pros until 2015, when he was already in his 40s, but he’s right at home with the best of the best these days. Having won the 2021 Masters to qualify for that year’s Premier League, the Welshman promptly won that too – and this season he was the first to qualify for the play-offs, having reached the last three finals and won two. Michael van Gerwen, James Wade and Peter Wright are well placed to join him, but there’s still a lot of tungsten to be thrown before the grand final in Berlin next month.

Netball Vitality Superleague


The Superleague season is getting towards the sharp end and there’s a real treat in store in the final round of league fixtures when Manchester Thunder host Loughborough Lightning.

Suncorp Super Netball

It’s definitely a big month for top-of-the-table clashes Down Under. West Coast Fever and Melbourne Vixens have led the way at the top of the Super Netball league, with Jhaniele Fowler – already a three-time player of the year award winner – outstanding for the Fever. They meet at Perth’s RAC Arena this month, and after coming close to the championship in 2020 and 2021, the Fever will be desperate to stamp their authority on this season.

The superbly named Ellis Zorro will be confident of success, with six knockouts and no defeats in his 11 pro fights. Jamie Smith, Anees Taj and Ryan Cotterell are among those trying to stop him.
