Live sport on TV this week

Live sport on TV this week

  

Don’t miss a ball of cricket’s The Hundred on Sky Sports and the BBC, while there are dozen of live football matches from the Premier League and beyond – plus the multi-sport European Championships and much more

By Chris Miller, Writer

As one huge international multi-sport event ends, another begins, and you can follow the fortunes of the British athletes competing in the European Championships across the BBC – just one part of another packed week (Monday 8 to Sunday 14 August) of live sport on Virgin TV.

 

Almost before you have time to catch your breath after the Commonwealth Games, the European Championships are dominating the schedules. There’s the multi-sport event in Munich, where the gymnastics team led by the likes of Jessica Gadirova (pictured above) have high hopes of medals; it also features athletics, cycling and rowing, as well as more esoteric events such as sport climbing, beach volleyball and table tennis.

 

Concurrently there’s the European Aquatics Championships from Rome, featuring pool swimming (including artistic), open-water swimming and diving, which will be incorporated into the Munich coverage on the BBC channels and iPlayer.

 

It may only be early August but football is well and truly back, with more than three dozen live games this week across all Virgin channels from England, Scotland, Europe – including the UEFA Super Cup on BT Sport – and beyond. Rugby league is back on Channel 4, as well as the usual coverage on Sky Sports, while cricket’s The Hundred is on daily, including a number of games shown on BBC Two.

 

And with rugby union, golf, MMA, boxing, horse racing, motorsport and more, including Diamond League athletics from Monaco, there’s absolutely loads of top-class live sporting action to keep you entertained on Virgin TV this week.

 

If you want to know what’s coming up on the box sport-wise, read on below, and don’t forget to bookmark this page for your weekly sporting updates.
