Live sport on TV this week

  

Here’s all the live sport you can enjoy on Virgin TV this week, and it’s a massive one with the UEFA Champions League final, rugby’s European Champions Cup final, the Monaco F1 Grand Prix and more

By Chris Miller, Writer

WHAT. A. WEEK. If you’re into sporting drama, and watching the absolute elite of the elite demonstrating their skills on the biggest stage, and preferably getting a large shiny trophy at the end of it, then boy oh boy, have we got a week of live sport on Virgin TV for you (Monday 23 May to Sunday 29 May).

 

On Saturday, it’s the big one – and we mean big. The UEFA Champions League trophy is both literally and figuratively the largest cup in football, and Liverpool and Real Madrid face off to get their hands on it on BT Sport (the match is free to all viewers). The clubs already have 19 European Cup/Champions League triumphs between them. Can Jürgen Klopp lead his team to another, or will Real’s amazing run of results in this competition continue?

 

Also in football this week you can see the inaugural Europa Conference League final between Roma and Feyenoord (also free), the A-League Men’s final, the Scottish Women’s Cup final and numerous crucial play-off matches, including what’s usually described as the most lucrative single game on the planet: the EFL Championship play-off final, in which Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town will battle for promotion to the promised land of the Premier League.

 

It’s a huge week for Huddersfield, in fact, as the town’s rugby league team take on Wigan in the Challenge Cup final. They haven’t won it since 1953, giving them a huge incentive to overcome the Warriors, and it’s live on BBC One. In rugby union, Marseille hosts both the European finals: Lyon and Toulon face off for the Challenge Cup on Friday before four-time winners Leinster play La Rochelle, going for their first title, in the Champions Cup final on Saturday.

 

Not enough amazing sport for you? How about the most glamorous Grand Prix on the Formula 1 calendar? Monaco hosts its celebrated street race on Sunday, which you can see live on Sky Sports. In cricket, the Indian Premier League reaches its final stage as the world’s best men’s T20 players battle for the prize, while the Women’s T20 Challenge takes place all this week too. AND the domestic men’s T20 competition, the Vitality Blast, begins this week too.

 

And with more brilliant action from around the world – including French Open tennis on Eurosport, the Italian MotoGP and the fabled Indianapolis 500 race – it really is no exaggeration to say this is one of the greatest weeks of sport there has ever been.
