The Premier League season kicks off in two weeks on Saturday, and now Sky is bringing even more footie action to our screens. It's signed a three-year deal to show matches from the Ping An Chinese Football Association Super League (CSL).

The league might not be that well known on these shores, but it features a host of household names. Former Chelsea midfielder Ramires, for example, as well as Obafemi Martins (who used to play for Newcastle United), Gervinho (ex-Arsenal) and recent signing from Southampton Graziano Pelle.

The first CSL match Sky will show will be this Saturday, when Shanghai Greenland take on Jiangsu Suning. Then on Sunday, Guangzhou R&F face Shanghai SIPG (which is managed by former England manager Sven Goran Ericsson). Both matches are on Sky Sports 3 at 12:30.

Sky Sports will also show 126 live Premier League matches this season, as well as 127 live games from the Sky Bet EFL, 300 matches from Spain's La Liga, live Old Firm games in Scotland and FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

"This is more great news for football fans as we get set for our biggest ever season on Sky Sports," said Gary Hughes, Sky Sports head of football. "The Ping An Chinese Super League is attracting players from Europe and is creating a really exciting competition that will only add to an incredible line up of live football on Sky Sports."
