Sky Sports to broadcast 1,000 EFL games on new platform next season

EFL Sky Sports

Sky Sports have announced they will show over 1,000 EFL matches next season – allowing each supporter to watch their team at least 20 times.

The matches will be available on the broadcating giant’s new platform Sky Sports+, which they say gives customers access to 50% more live sport at no extra cost.

Supporters of Championship clubs will be able to watch their teams at least 24 times via the new service, with League One and League Two fans treated to a minimum of 20 across the 2024-25 campaign.

Every opening weekend fixture will be shown on the new platform, as well as all games in midweek and on the final day.

They will also broadcast all clashes played on bank holidays, including Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and Easter.

Sky Sports+ has the capability to show up to 100 live events at the same time, with the platform effectively replacing the EFL’s streaming service iFollow.

Despite the significant changes, the traditional 3pm blackout will remain in place, meaning each fixture shown on the service will be sheduled outside the 2.45pm-5.15pm window on a Saturday.

Sky Sports+ launches in August and will be available on Sky TV, streaming service NOW and the Sky Sports app.
