BT and Sky Sports have announced they are to continue broadcasting live Premier League matches between 2019 and 2022.

Following the latest Premier League auction, Sky has confirmed that it will show more matches than ever before from 2019, with the number of games being broadcast per season going up from 126 to 128.

Sky Sports viewers will receive every first-pick weekend match and 14 second picks, as well as Saturday evening fixtures for the first time, all on Sky’s dedicated Premier League channel. BT, meanwhile, will show Saturday lunchtime top-flight fixtures.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said customers will continue enjoying "unrivalled" Premier League coverage through to 2022, including "key head-to-heads in the best slots and analysis from the biggest names in football".

"This comes on the back of recent renewals for EFL, ECB and exclusivity for F1, all of which will be available to our customers until 2024," he commented.

Stephen van Rooyen, UK Chief Executive of Sky, stated that the agreement means Sky remains "the home of the Premier League".

"We continue to invest in content that our customers value and which complements our strategy to broaden our offer," he said.

Marc Allera, Chief Executive of BT’s Consumer Division, added that the Premier League is "undoubtedly" the most competitive and exciting domestic league in the world.

"We’re delighted that our customers will be able to continue enjoying Saturday games on BT Sport," he commented.

Mr Allera went on to state that the Premier League is a "big part" of its live sport line-up, which also includes the Uefa Champions League, Uefa Europa League, the Emirates FA Cup, MotoGP, boxing, Aviva Premiership rugby and the European Rugby Champions Cup.
