In 2019, the channel became the exclusive broadcaster of Manchester City FC and Arsenal FC's Champions League group stage matches.[12][13] This was an increase in coverage as Manchester City were eliminated from the competition by Tottenham Hotspur FC in August. A preview of the 2020/21 season showed them finishing second in Group D and qualifying for the knockout rounds in first place, while Everton and Crystal Palace would qualify for Europa League round-of-32 and quarter-finals respectively, if they won their play-offs.[14][15][16] Their rivals Manchester United, who won 2–1, held on to top spot and guaranteed progression to the FA Cup fourth round, and ended the campaign with an aggregate shoreline of 1,074 points.[17][18]

In January 2020, BBCSPORT announced plans to extend its programming agreement with ITV to cover the 2020-21 English Premier League season.[19][20][21] Its existing contracts are due to run until 2023.

During times of high audience demand the channel can provide more content in longer, shorter form formats to accommodate any demand.

Origins [ edit ]

BBC Sport Football Premier League

BBC Sport launched on March 2006 as a 24-hour radio channel, offering viewers in the UK an alternative means to listen to the latest matches of professional sports. Inspired by rival Channel 4, the channel focused initially on the coverage of lower-division soccer. When asked why no other cricket was mentioned in the launch, Montague said he wanted to highlight "the underdogs", but had no knowledge of what sport came next.[33] After failing to gain traction, the format was suspended temporarily in 2009.[34][35]

During the 2011–12 seasons, Sky Sports signed a multi-year contract with Sky Sports News to produce half-hourly magazine-style articles, video and music videos and reports on British sporting fixtures and events. Since 2013, it had carried out more than 80 productions with a focus on specific sports. For instance, the daily edition covers football news, features interviews among players and coaches, takes viewers behind the scenes and gives insight into various aspects of grassroots football. With each issue, a team of contributors work with staff journalists including reporters, photographers, videographers, cinematographers and writers to make sure stories are presented accurately.

In August 2015, the network introduced a website using Live Stats technology. The site lists every match and provides information about scores, injury updates and latest statistics. It contains podcasts, features profiles of all players, coaches and referees from all over the globe, as well as statistics related to individual clubs and leagues.

In September 2018, Sky announced a partnership with US-based publisher O'Reilly Media.[36] All Sky Sports publications would be distributed through O'Reilly's digital platform O'Reilly Digital Platform. Under the terms of the deal, O'Reilly will host all broadcasts except those on terrestrial radios.[37][38] On April 1, 2019, Sky Sports became the first-ever provider to reach 100 million people via cable TV and mobile.

Sky Sports and Main Event will air highlights of more than 50 football matches every day.[39] It will present around 25% of the annual total of worldwide live spectator attendance of around 63 million[40] across all continents.
