Sky has won the broadcast rights to 128 Premier League matches a season exclusively live in the Republic or Ireland.

From next year, Sky Sports will show every first-pick weekend fixture and Saturday evening matches. The deal lasts until 2022.

In the recent Premier League rights auction, Sky retained the lion's share of the matches, while BT increased its number of matches by 10. For the first time, Amazon also secured the rights to 20 games.

"This is great news for Sky Sports customers," said JD Buckley, managing director of Sky Ireland. "Under the new agreement, viewers will be able to enjoy more of the biggest matches, including the key head to head fixtures in the best slots, alongside analysis from some of the biggest names in football. With fixtures spread right across the weekend, and with Saturday night kick-offs for the first time, our viewers will have more choice than ever before."

Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore added: "Sky Sports is a fantastic long-term partner for the Premier League and we are extremely pleased they will broadcast the competition across Ireland."
