Want to watch football in the UK? Or even enjoy international championships on the big screen? We’ll show you where all the games are broadcast. Even international leagues can be viewed from all around the world.
Barclay’s Premier League
Most English football games are televised on either Sky Sports or BT Sport. Amazon Prime Video also has rights to broadcast some games. The 19/20-season sees over 200 games by 20 teams broadcast live on television. While the games in the first half of the 19/20-season take place on Saturdays, a small portion of the second half of the season is shown midweek, which means Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday in December 2019. The rest of all games are broadcast through May 2020.
The majority of the matches will be shown by Sky Sports with 128 games, followed up by BT sport with 52 live games. Amazon Prime Video loses out with only 20 games at the end of the season. The season starts on Friday, 9th August 2019 with Liverpool meeting up against Norwich City. The last match takes place with Wolverhampton rivaling current champions Manchester City on 26th December.
Premier League Fixtures Season 2019/2020
The majority of all games are shown on 4pm GMT on Saturdays, while the first games of the season take place from Friday, 9th August, through Sunday, 11th August 2019. The midweeks start on 8:45pm or 9pm GMT. Find more information about dates and responsible broadcasters on the official website of Barclay’s Premier League.
Sky Bet Football League Championship
With 24 participating teams in the UKs second highest football league, the Football League Championships sees 552 matches in the 19/20 season. Watching all of these might come as a bit of a hassle, as not all games are broadcast live. Sky Sports used to broadcast at least 65, but they have lost their rights to do so.
Football League Championship Fixtures Season 2019/2020
Now, the only matches shown live on Sky Sports are the play off semi-finals and finals. But you are welcome to check out the highlights each week on Quest. Audio commentary is also available with talkSPORT and BBC Sport having the rights to broadcast top matches.
UEFA Champions League
Europe’s top division clubs play against each other every year to decide who’s the best team on the continent. The tournament is of course called UEFA Champions League. To follow the action and to stay in touch with Europe’s finest, BT sport is the answer. They have exclusive coverage to every game. Qualifiers for season 2019/2020 start at the end of June through July.
UEFA Europa League & UEFA Super Cup
Both remaining European tournaments for European football clubs are the Europa League and Super Cup. Both tournaments can exclusively be watched on BT Sport as well.
FIFA World Cup
With the next World Cup being quite in the future, it cannot hurt to know where to watch the matches when time comes. The next grand tournament takes place in sunny Qatar in 2022. This time around the matches will be played in November and December instead of June and July. This is due to the extraordinary heat of Arabian summers.
ITV and the BBC will show every one of the 64 games in Qatar. The qualifiers are broadcast by ITV and Sky Sports.
UEFA European Championship
The next Euros already take place in 2020 in all of Europe. Former UEFA president and French footballer Michel Platini announced this one-of-a-kind way to host the European Championship as a romantic way to celebrate the tournament’s 60th birthday.
The games will take place in 12 selected stadiums in 12 respective cities all over Europe. The UK is hosting several games in two stadiums: London’s Wembley Stadium and Glasgow’s Hampden Park. The semi-finals and finals will be played in Wembley.
Sky Sports and ITV have secured the rights to broadcast the qualifiers. While ITV will show every English match, Sky Sports has exclusive coverage of every Northern Irish, Irish, Scottish and Welsh game.
The resulting tournament is broadcast by the BBC and ITV.
Bundesliga – German football
Germany has more to offer than precisely manufactured cars, pretzels, beer and Lederhosen – our football games are top notch all the same. If you want to watch Lewandowski, Müller or Hummels, check out BT Sport. All games and interesting bonus content are shown there.
Ligue 1 – French football
France’s Ligue 1 is the league for French top teams such as Paris Saint-Germain, Olympique Marseille or AS Monaco. If you want to follow Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Verrati, also check out BT Sport.
Primera Division – Spanish football
La Liga is the source of Spanish pro football with 20 teams, some of which are the best in all of Europe. The biannual “El Clásico” between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid is a spectacle no football fan can miss. Watch these games and more exclusively on Eleven sports.
Serie A – Italian football
The following lines might come as a disappointment to fans of Cristiano Ronaldo and Italian football. Unfortunately, broadcaster Eleven Sports has ditched broadcasting rights in an effort to save the company from closure, as reported by The Guardian. Fortunately, on the other hand, online broadcaster Premier Sports is showing up to six live games a week from Serie A starting in August 2019.
