Sky Sports Announces 11 Championship TV Matches

Sky Sports have announced eleven picks from the first three returning rounds of the Sky Bet Championship, including a blockbuster London derby between Fulham and Brentford. 

Third meets fourth in Sky’s first Championship match since the enforced lockdown in March, as Fulham host Brentford at Craven Cottage on Saturday 20 June in a 12:30pm (BST) kick-off. 

Sky will then air a Midlands derby straight after on same day as West Bromwich Albion take on Birmingham City at the Hawthorns at 3pm (BST), before Cardiff then welcome Leeds to the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday 21 June at 12pm (BST). 

Sky will air West Brom’s trip to Brentford as part of the first Friday Night Football in Championship on 26 June, with a 7:45pm (BST) kick-off. 

Another Saturday double header on 27 June sees Cardiff visit Preston in a crunch clash between two play-off contenders at 12:30pm (BST), before Leeds then meet Fulham at Elland Road in the 3pm (BST) kick-off.

Sunday 28 June will see Bristol City host Sheffield Wednesday at 12:00pm (BST), before Huddersfield visit Nottingham Forest at 2:15pm (BST).

Sky have opted to split their three picks in the first midweek round across 30 June to 2nd July with 5pm kick-offs to avoid Premier League coverage, as Millwall and Preston host Swansea and Derby respectively on 30 June and 1 July. 

Hull then rounds out the first selection of picks as they host Middlesbrough in a potentially decisive relegation decider on 2 July. 

Remaining Sky Sports picks across the last six rounds will be announced in due course, with Quest TV continuing to air highlights on Saturdays plus Wednesdays in weeks containing a midweek round. 

Season Ticket holders will be able to watch their club’s remaining games on iFollow or a club equivalent service, even if matches are selected for live Sky Sports coverage.
