Once again this season, Sky have committed to broadcast 20 weekend games shown live on Sky Sports from SkyBet League One and League Two which could potentially mean that one or more of The Imps’ fixtures maybe rearranged to be shown LIVE on television.
However, to ensure that any fixtures which are selected for live broadcast is communicated to clubs as early as possible, the EFL and Sky Sports are continuing their ‘five-week commitment’ which gives clubs as much notice as possible of any game being covered, after which the EFL will also announce this publicly within three days of the respective clubs receiving confirmation.
The only time this timeline changes, is from March 7th onwards, then the commitment reduces to four weeks on a rolling week by week basis. The date of rolling selections commences on 7th February for matches from March 7th onwards. However, the notice period given for the penultimate game of the SkyBet season reduces to three weeks.
No League One or League Two club will be featured on Sky more than four times in a season.
