Christmas 2018 sport TV guide: festive football, rugby and darts highlights on BT Sport and Sky Sports
It would be easier to say when football isn’t on television over the festive period. Between now and New Year’s Day, there are 16 Premier League matches live on television. And if that is not enough, there are five Championship games.
There’s a Sky Sports triple-header on Boxing Day. And if you are still hungry for more, Southampton v West Ham will be playing under the lights on 27 December, again on Sky.
Liverpool v Arsenal (bosses Jurgen Klopp and Unai Emery pictured below) on BT Sport is the highlight of 29 December, with another treble on Sky Sports the next day.
Everton v Leicester and Cardiff v Tottenham see us into 2019 on New Year’s Day.
In the Championship, it’s Hull v Swansea on 22 December then Aston Villa v Leeds the following day to get us into the Christmas spirit, while promotion contenders Sheffield United host Derby to brighten up Boxing Day.
