Sport is back in the headlines with Sky Sports today announcing it is relaunching Sky Sports in its entirety.
The move follows the end of the Premier League season with the BBC announcing that it would no longer be running the channel on its cable network and instead the broadcaster would be moving to its new online service.
In a statement Sky Sports said:It is an incredible honour to be re-launching Sky Sport Football in this way and we are delighted to be working with a network that has shown a level of passion and commitment to the sport since it launched in the 1980s.
Sky Sports will be a place where fans can see everything from the action from every game on a big screen to the world’s best players and teams competing at the highest level.
Sky Sports will launch a new platform for sports content and a dedicated Sky Sports channel in the coming months.
The channel will also offer live coverage of the FIFA World Cup, the European Championships, the Paralympics, the World Cup Qualifiers and the Copa del Rey.
The announcement came just hours after Sky Sports was forced to cancel its coverage of last weekend’s Manchester derby with Arsenal.
The match was played after the Premier Kick Off.
The Premier League was cancelled on Saturday night after the refereeing decision led to a red card for Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez.
