It's a North American television institution and it's coming to Sky Sports.

'Monday Night Football' will air on the pay-TV platform from 2015, increasing Sky Sports' coverage of American football from the NFL.

As part of a new five-year broadcast deal, subscribers will be able to watch up to 80 live fixtures a season, including up to five games each week of the regular season.

Sky Sports will also show the end-of-season play-offs and Super Bowl, plus matches from the NFL’s International Series - where teams travel to play at London's Wembley Stadium.

Barney Francis, Managing Director at Sky Sports, said the service provider is "delighted" to have been awarded the rights to 'Monday Night Football' - a show that first aired in 1970.

He said the programme is part of a "fantastic new deal" for even more live American football on the TV platform.

"The agreement means Sky Sports viewers can enjoy all the drama, excitement and unpredictability from the NFL until at least 2019," Mr Francis explained.

He said Sky Sports' partnership with the NFL spans two decades and it looks forward to helping the sport continue its growth in popularity in the UK and Ireland.
