Sky announce TV games for final week of Championship season

Relegation battle to feature on Sky Sports this week

3 May 2021

Sky Sports have announced two Sky Bet Championship games that will be shown live this week. With most issues decided at the top of the table, Sky Sports, the EFL broadcast partner, will focus on the battle to avoid relegation to League One in the coming days. They will show Rotherham United's trip to Luton Town on Tuesday night, 4 May, and then Derby County v Sheffield Wednesday next Saturday, 8 May, at 12.30pm.

Brentford's game away to Bristol City next Saturday will not be shown live. All games on the final day of the season will kick-off at the same time. The Bees will be in the West Country for a game that will kick-off at 12.30pm and fans can watch on iFollow Brentford.

Saturday's match will, unfortunately, be behind closed doors. As per the EFL communication on the broadcast arrangements for the new season, all of a team's games not selected for live coverage by Sky Sports will only be available on iFollow. See more here.

The announcement here also confirms that a team's away matches can only be purchased on a game-by game basis. Fans that want to watch will need to sign up for iFollow and pay £10 to tune in (£7 for international fans). Buy your Match Pass and watch at home.

Those watching live will see the battle to avoid the drop. Rotherham are currently 23rd but will climb to 21st, above Derby and Sheffield Wednesday and out of the relegation zone, if they win. The loser of the Derby v Sheffield Wednesday game will definitely be relegated and even Wycombe Wanderers, currently bottom, can survive with a very strange set of results and massive goal difference swing.
