Sky Sports has announced the Sky Bet EFL fixtures to be shown live on Sky Sports and Sky Sports+ in August and September, with every EFL club featuring at least three times.
For the period up until the end of September every EFL team will have an opening weekend fixture, a Carabao Cup tie and at least one regular weekend fixture screened live on Sky Sports.
Included in the selections are two Lancashire derbies in the Championship, with Blackburn travelling to Burnley on Saturday August 31 – kick-off 12.30pm – with Rovers then heading to Preston on Sunday September 22 – kick-off 12pm.
On Saturday August 17, Sky Sports will show the Championship clash between last season’s League One champions Portsmouth and Luton at Fratton Park – kick-off 12.30pm.
In League One, Birmingham host Wrexham in front of the Sky Sports cameras on Monday September 16 – kick-off 8pm.
And Bromley’s first-ever home game in the EFL is set for live coverage against AFC Wimbledon in League Two on Saturday August 17 – kick-off 12.30pm.
The EFL season begins with four games on Friday August 9 and every game across the opening weekend of the Championship, League One and League Two will be streamed live on Sky Sports+, a landmark first in broadcasting history.
