gary lineker match of the day

The BBC has revealed its forthcoming sports fixtures, including live and highlights coverage.

The corporation inked a three-year deal for Premiership highlights. It also has the rights to live coverage of the FA Cup until 2018 and World Cup coverage until 2022.

The big news is 'March of the Day' will be back on Saturday nights from August 8th. It will be complemented by a new section dedicated to the show on the BBC Sport website, plus BBC Sport apps.

Naturally, it will be hosted once again by Gary Lineker, who will also present for BT Sport this season.

'Match of the Day' will host a one-off FA Community Shield highlights show on August 2nd (that's this Sunday). This sees Arsenal take on Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.

(BT Sport will also show the game live in 4K on its new BT Sport Ultra HD channel.)

The BBC will show up to 16 live FA Cup matches plus highlights from every round from November onwards. And it'll show special Sunday Final Scores and Monday draw shows.

The Women's FA Cup final will be live on BBC One on Saturday.

The BBC also has two BBC One specials for the end of the Women's Super League season. This will encompass highlights of the main games on Sunday, September 27th and Sunday October 4th, the last weekend of the season.

The Women's Super League will also have its own regular Monday night slots on August 10th and 24th and September 7th. These will be repeated on Saturday mornings on BBC Two.
