It feels like the Premier League season only just ended, and already it's about to start again. BT and Sky have announced their fixtures for August and September. And as you'd expect, Sky has the rights to the lion's share of games.

Sky's coverage kicks off with Chelsea at home to Swansea City on Saturday August 8th at 8:30pm. BT's first televised game is Tottenham Hotspur away to Manchester United at 12:45pm the same day.

Sky will show two games the next day (Arsenal vs West Ham and Stoke City vs Liverpool) and another game on Monday 10th too: West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City. So it should be a busy weekend for footie fans with Sky.

In all, Sky will show 14 games in August and 10 in September, while BT will show four and three, respectively. However, that doesn't tell the whole story.

BT has the exclusive rights to all Champions League and Europa League matches, which it will show on BT Sport Europe. So if you're keen to follow your team in are advised to head there.

"Sky Sports will be live from the home of the champions as another Premier League season kicks off, and with these first seven rounds of games there is much to look forward to," said Sky Sports managing director Barney Francis.

"In our opening 24 matches we will show every Premier League team, telling the complete story as the season starts to take shape, as well as the big head-to-heads like Man City vs Chelsea and Man Utd vs Liverpool."

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said: “Football fans can look forward to a terrifically exciting start to the season on BT Sport in the Barclays Premier League.

"BT Sport will be broadcasting matches featuring last season’s top four six times during the Premier League’s opening stages, and they’ll also be seen exclusively live on BT Sport Europe as the European campaign begins.”
