Live on Sky Sports this month

  

The Super League is back and there’s an exciting new tennis channel, plus the Super Bowl, the Africa Cup Of Nations final, Premier League action and much more

By Chris Miller, Feature Writer

Rugby league’s Super League returns for a new season this month and when we say Sky Sports’ coverage is bigger and better than ever, it’s not just a platitude. This year, Sky Sports is showing every single Super League game live across its channels and platforms. That’s right, every game. That’s more than 150 matches for fans to get their fill of hard tackles, skilful handling and lightning-fast runs from some of the toughest athletes in the world. It all begins on 15 February.

 

Also new this month is an entire channel dedicated to tennis. Sky Sports Tennis launches on 11 February and throughout the year it’ll bring you thrilling live action from men’s and women’s events around the world – as well as the US Open, which starts in August. You’ll be able to follow the fortunes of the biggest stars as well as all the British hopefuls. It’s a new dawn for tennis on UK TV.

 

And that’s not all! It’s a month of big finals, from the Super Bowl to cricket’s SA20 to the EFL Cup and the Africa Cup Of Nations in football. Plus there’s plenty of action from the Premier League, Scottish Premiership, Women’s Super League, EFL and Bundesliga, including a potentially title-deciding clash in Germany.

 

All this plus golf, rugby union, darts, MMA, basketball and the start of another new Super League season – this time in netball, with five games in a single day. It’s all happening on Sky Sports so don’t miss a minute.

 

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. On iPad and Android tablets you can also access Sky Sports’ cutting-edge second-screen functions.

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

Football: Premier League


Man Utd are no doubt focused on their own results as they aim for the top four, but you can bet they’d absolutely love to derail their local rivals’ title challenge on the first Sunday in March. That’s three years almost to the day since United last won at the Etihad. The red Devils will get a boost from the likes of Casemiro and Mason Mount returning from injury, but City are likely to be at full strength too – an intimidating prospect for any opponent.

 

Before that United’s trip to Kenilworth Road is also live on Sky Sports, and Erik ten Hag ought to be worried about Luton’s recent home form as they battle to escape relegation. That 4-0 defeat of Brighton was particularly impressive. You can also see Aston Villa in action against both Luton and Man Utd this month, as they aim to maintain their title challenge after a few stumbles.

Football: Africa Cup Of Nations

We’ve had incredible – and yet, oddly, all too credible – scenes at the perennially unpredictable Afcon, where none of the countries that reached the last eight in the previous tournament managed to do so this year. Giants like Sénégal, Egypt, Morocco and Cameroon all fell, while hosts Côte D’Ivoire bounced back from a 4-0 group-stage defeat (and sacking their manager!) to reach the semi-finals. Anyone who confidently predicts the outcome ahead of the semis is kidding themselves. Don’t miss the final on 11 February – it promises to be a classic.

Football: Scottish Premiership

Sky Sports throws us into the thick of the Premiership relegation battle this month. After a rollercoaster rise, fall and rise again, Livingston have enjoyed a few stable years in the top flight, but they’ve been rooted to the bottom of the table this season. Wins are very much at a premium and they’ll be desperate for three points against Motherwell, who aren’t far away from the relegation and play-off places themselves. The previous day Ross County face St Mirren as they aim to catch the teams above them and avoid the dreaded play-off.

 

You can keep up with the title race too, with three Celtic away games shown live as they travel to Hibs, Motherwell and Hearts, while Rangers host Aberdeen (and their new boss Neil Warnock) and visit St Johnstone.

Football: Women’s Super League


Chelsea have been top of the WSL for most of the season – even when they’ve slipped up, their title rivals have dropped points too – and look set to defend their crown again, ahead of long-serving manager Emma Hayes’ departure. But the absence of prolific striker Sam Kerr through injury could have a serious impact. The Blues have signed Colombia’s Mayra Ramirez as back-up, but can she hit the ground running? They’re at the King Power to play Leicester on 3 March.

 

Man City look best placed to challenge Chelsea and while they’ve got no striking problems, with Bunny Shaw banging in goals for fun, they’ve also lost an influential player to injury in Jill Roord. Their home match with Eveton is live on Sky Sports.

Football: EFL Championship

With four play-off places up for grabs in the Championship, the race to reach the Premier League is never over till it’s over. There’s a gap from fourth to fifth in the table, and then there’s a whole clutch of clubs who know that a few wins could put them into those crucial slots. That includes Watford and Norwich, who face off at Carrow Road on 13 February – part of a full round of fixtures live on Sky Sports – while Hull and West Brom, who meet on 24 February, are also contenders.

 

The key clash this month, though, is the Friday night game between Leeds and Leicester. If the Foxes win away to one of the division’s best teams, surely nothing can stop them proceeding to the title. If Leeds can pull off a victory… well, it’ll definitely keep things interesting. Be sure to tune in on 23 February.

Football: EFL Cup Final


In 2022 these two played out a 0-0 in this final, culminating in a memorable 11-10 win on penalties for Liverpool, the hapless goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga blasting his crucial spot-kick over the bar. He’d been brought on specifically for the shoot-out, although presumably not to do that. No-one’s expecting the same kind of freakish result this time, but there are plenty of stories around the final.

 

Chelsea will be desperate to claim a trophy as they aim to justify the half-billion pounds their new owners have spent on players. Any trophy will do – right? The same may be true for manager Mauricio Pochettino: sure, he’s gained widespread respect as a coach, but the only silverware he’s won has been with the financial might of Paris St-Germain behind him. When at Spurs, he asserted that a team’s success wasn’t defined by trophies. We’ll see how laid-back he is if Chelsea win this one.

 

Liverpool are entering a bizarre period in which they’ve got a decent chance of claiming four trophies, while knowing they’re going to lose their hugely influential coach, Jürgen Klopp, at season’s end. Five days after the German announced he would be leaving, Liverpool thrashed a below-par Chelsea 4-1 at Anfield. Who will be most galvanised by that result ahead of this Wembley final? We’ll find out live on Sky Sports.

 

Chelsea v Liverpool

Sunday 25 February, 2pm, Sky Sports Football/HD (CH 513/503)

 

Football: Bundesliga

Despite adding the firepower of England captain Harry Kane, Bayern’s chances of making it 12 titles in a row are in the balance. It’s not Kane’s fault – he’s been scoring more than a goal a game – but while the odd wobble can sometimes be managed, that’s not the case when your main rivals are looking unbeatable. Bayer Leverkusen made it to February without a single defeat: they’ve been living dangerously, with stoppage-time goals to beat Augsburg and RB Leipzig in January, but those wins will surely add to their sense of belief that this will finally be the year they rid themselves of the “Neverkusen” tag.

 

So the meeting between the two at the BayArena on 10 February is, quite simply, massive. If Leverkusen win, they’ll be a chunky five points ahead of their Bavarian rivals, with all the momentum. If Bayern win, they’ll leapfrog Die Werkself and assume their customary position as frontrunners – and self-belief is built into the Bayern DNA. Crunch games don’t come any crunchier.

American Football: NFL


Super Bowl LVIII will be a rematch of Super Bowl LIV, as the San Francisco 49ers meet the Kansas City Chiefs. Last time it was the Chiefs who emerged triumphant, with quarterback Patrick Mahomes staking his claim to be a modern great. KC are also the defending champs, having staged a memorable comeback to defeat the Eagles last February. But the 49ers, led by Brock “Mr Relevant” Purdy (who’ll become the lowest-drafted QB ever to start a Super Bowl), are the slight favourites.

 

In the play-offs the Chiefs tended to dominate teams, seeing off the Dolphins and the Ravens more or less by half-time, while San Francisco relied on maintaining their scoring through the second half. With both defenses in great form, that makes this game, taking place in Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, a serious intriguing and unpredictable prospect.

 

Look out too for the half-time show headlined by Usher – although he’s unlikely to be the most famous pop singer in the building. The Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce’s girlfriend is Taylor Swift, and her high-profile support for her BF has been credited with raising interest in the NFL among young women. Is there nothing she can’t do?

Rugby League: Super League XXIX

London Broncos were founder members of the Super League in 1996, but they’ve had an up-and-down history since then. They went through various owners, moved around London, were subject to speculation about moving to York, rebranded as Harlequins Rugby League, rebranded back to London Broncos, and were eventually relegated in 2014. After a brief Super League return in 2018, they’re back again with a new home at Wimbledon’s Plough Lane. Can they upset the established elite? It’s going to be tough – especially when their first game is against the mighty St Helens.

 

The first TV match of the 2024 season is an all-Hull affair, while champions Wigan begin their campaign at Castleford – which should be a decent warm-up for the World Club Challenge a week later.

Rugby League: NRL Men’s


Wigan’s opponents in the World Club Challenge are NRL champs Penrith Panthers, with the match acting as the curtain-raiser for the new Antipodean rugby league season. The 2023 title was the Panthers’ third national championship in a row – the first time anyone’s achieved that feat since the early 1980s, and you’ve got to go back to the 1960s to find a longer winning streak. Penrith are favourites to claim it again (although they’d still be way off the Dragons’ 11 consecutive titles, 1956-1966) but the Sydney Roosters, South Sydney Rabbitohs, Brisbane Broncos and NZ Warriors are all strong contenders too.

 

If you can handle the 4.30am kick-off, you can see the Roosters and Broncos go head to head on 3 March. The Panthers are in TV action against Melbourne the following Friday at 9am.

Rugby Union: Super Rugby

Hamilton’s Chiefs topped the table in 2023 with the most wins and the most points scored overall – but it was the Crusaders, based in Christchurch, who won the Super Rugby final, beating the Chiefs 25-20 to take their second consecutive championship and their 12th in total. Three of last seasons’ four semi-finalists were New Zealand teams, so can the Aussies fight back this year? Or perhaps Fijian Drua, who finished a creditable seventh last year in just their second season in the league, could push on? Sky Sports brings you full coverage on Friday to Sunday mornings, starting on 23 February with a 2023 final rematch.

Darts: Premier League

Luke Littler may be the biggest thing in darts right now, but the Premier League takes no prisoners. With its unforgiving, quickfire first-to-six-legs format, there’s absolutely no room for error, as Littler discovered when he came up against a powerhouse display of double-hitting from Michael Smith in week 1. Smith, wearing a red dragon shirt, won the night’s final in Cardiff against home favourite Gerwyn Price, and the 2023 world champ looked reinvigorated and ready to take down all comers – 17 years old or otherwise. This month the action moves on to Berlin and then Glasgow and Newcastle, before heading to England’s south coast.

Golf


Golfers have the right idea: while we’re shivering in the chilly northern European climes, they’re heading to where the sunshine is at this time of year, whether that’s the Middle East, east Africa, Mexico or the western US. The LPGA Tour, meanwhile, is in Singapore for the rather grandly named Women’s World Championship, which doesn’t crown the world champion but is still a prestigious event with millions in prize money. And, crucially, it’s warm there. Jin Young-ko is the defending champion.

Boxing

World title fights come thick and fast this month on Sky Sports. First Teofimo Lopez defends his WBO super lightweight belt – which he won from Britain’s Josh Taylor last year – against the challenge of Jamaine Ortiz in Vegas. Then the action moves to Madison Square Garden, where WBC super featherweight champ O’Shaquie Foster makes his second title defence, this time against Abraham Nova.

 

Staying on the US’s east coast, the venue for a pair of featherweight title bouts is Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York. Uzbek fighter Otabek Kholmatov faces American Raymond Ford for the vacant WBA title, while IBF champ Luis Alberto Lopez’s opponent is Japan’s Reiya Abe.

Cricket: SA20

We’re at the sharp end of the South Africa-based T20 tournament and defending champions Sunrisers have had another excellent season, with English players Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid and Tom Abell making significant contributions. However, it’s Durban’s Super Giants who’ve dominated, not just with wins but with convincing wins that have brought them crucial bonus points. Their key batters have been Heinrich Klaasen and Proteas legend Quinton de Kock, the latter weighing in with a massive, unbeaten 83 from 51 balls against Paarl. Find out who takes the title live on Saturday 10 February.

Netball: Super League


In a busy month for new seasons starting, netball’s Super League is back too. As is traditional, it begins with all 10 teams playing consecutively on a single day in a real feast of action for fans. This year’s opening-day extravaganza is at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena, and it’s all live on Sky Sports Mix HD.

 

Loughborough and Manchester have been the dominant teams in recent years, sharing the past four titles equally.

Basketball: BBL

The Eagles and Gladiators are firmly in the hunt for play-off places behind runaway league leaders London Lions, and they meet at the Vertu Motors Arena on Friday 9 February. Newcastle are led by the 39-year-old Darius Defoe, who with 27 titles under his belt is a true BBL legend. Is there a chance of one more this season? The Lions look more or less invincible, but the Eagles will live in hope. Look out for more BBL coverage on Sky Sports’ YouTube channel.

MMA: ONE Championship

Jonathan Haggerty comes from an unprepossessing part of south-east London but he’s conquered the world of mixed martial arts, with ONE world Muay Thai titles at strawweight and bantamweight as well as a kickboxing championship, achieved by knocking out the previously undefeated Mario Andrade in November. This month he’s defending his bantamweight Muay Thai crown in Bangkok against the talented Brazilian Felipe Lobo in what’s sure to be a punishing contest.

 

And there’s more ONE action to come later in the month, with MMA middleweights Reinier de Ridder and Anatoly Malykhin facing off in Qatar before the promotion heads back to Thailand for another Fight Night.
