How To Watch Live Football: The Complete Guide

watch live football on tvFootball is by far the most popular sport with television audiences around the world. The only exception is in the USA where soccer (as it is called) takes second place behind other domestic sports. But everywhere else, it’s called football, and it’s the undisputed favourite live sport on TV with millions of fans worldwide.

There’s an incredible choice of live matches to watch. So whether you’re interested in a specific league or team, or you just want to catch as much televised football as you can, you won’t be disappointed.

Is There Any Football On TV Today?

These days it’s not a case of asking whether there is any football on TV today, because the answer will almost certainly be yes!

But the problem is that there’s so many matches to choose from, and so many different channels showing them, it can sometimes be hard to keep track! That’s why you’ll definitely need a TV listings guide like ours to keep track of which matches are on, and what channels are showing them.

What Channel Is The Football On?

Some matches are still available on free to air TV these days, but you’ll certainly get to watch a lot more if you subscribe to some of the paid channels. If you’re looking to watch a specific team, competition or tournament then you might be wondering which channels you need to get.

Premier League

Premier League logoFor some time now, the English Premier League has been the most popular domestic league to watch on TV. Currently the rights to show live matches are split into packages, and these are shared between broadcasters.

You can now watch live Premier League matches in the UK on Sky Sports and BT Sport.

  • 126 games on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Even
  • 42 games on BT Sport

Therefore, you would need to subscribe to both Sky and BT if you want to be certain of watching every live Premier League match this season.

Champions League

Champions League logoBT Sport have the exclusive rights to show every UEFA Champions League match live in the UK until 2021, including the final. When fixtures are being played simultaneously, they usually broadcast one on BT Sport 2, another on BT Sport 3, and the rest are available via the red button.

Under the terms of the deal they do make one match per week available for free, but to get the rest you do need to subscribe.

It’s worth the cost though, as the coverage has improved dramatically since they started and is now as good as Sky’s ever was.

Europa League

Europa League logoIn the same deal that got them the Champions League, BT Sport also won the rights to the Europa League at the same time. That means all live Europa League matches will be shown on BT Sports channels until 2021.

They will screen matches from every round, from the preliminary and qualifying rounds to the group stages, knockout rounds, semi-finals and the final itself.

In recent years English clubs have started taking the competition very seriously and this has coincided with a big increase in viewing figures, particularly for the recent all English final.

FA Cup

FA Cup logoLive FA Cup matches from every round of the competition can be viewed on BT Sport and the BBC.

The two broadcasters share the rights to England’s most well known cup competition, and they take turns to choose which games they want to show once the fixtures have been drawn for each round.

That means that at least one match in every round will be free to air, including one FA Cup semi-final and the final itself. But to be certain of getting every match, you would need a BT Sport subscription.

Carabao Cup

Carabao Cup logoAll Carabao Cup fixtures are available exclusively live on Sky Sports Football. For high profile matches, and the semis and final, you will also find them simulcast on their Main Event channel.

The Carabao Cup is the current name for the English Football League Cup, or EFL Cup, which changes its name every few years according to its current sponsorship deal.

The winners qualify for the Europa League, so the big teams tend to start taking this a lot more seriously once they progress to the later rounds.

EFL Championship, League 1 & League 2

EFL Championship logoYou can watch live Championship football on Sky Sports every week, as well as selected fixtures from EFL League One and League Two.

They also show the end of season play-offs, including both semi-final legs and the finals as well.

Sky have an exclusive broadcast agreement with the English Football League, which means they are the only broadcaster that shows these matches in the UK.

Scottish Premiership (SPL)

Scottish League logoLive matches from the SPL are shown on Sky Sports and BT Sport in the UK. The fixtures are split evenly, with each broadcaster showing 30 games each.

However, Sky Sports have exclusive rights to every Old Firm Derby (the games between Celtic and Rangers). As you’d expect, these fixtures get the highest viewing figures, both north and south of the border.

La Liga

La Liga logoWatching La Liga, the top division in Spain, is very popular with UK TV audiences, especially “El Classico” when Real Madrid play Barcelona.

The rights to live TV coverage of La Liga is split between Eleven Sports, Premier Sports and at least one match a week is free to air on ITV4.

Games are played on Sunday evenings meaning they don’t clash with any Premier League fixtures. Considering that La Liga features perhaps the two biggest teams in Europe, and so many of the world’s best players plying their trade in La Liga, it’s well worth tuning in to watch.

Serie A

Serie A logoLive Serie A fixtures are shown on BT Sport and Premier Sports.

Italian football has been popular in the UK ever since the 1990s when Channel 4 started showing Gazzetta Futbol Italia.

These days, Serie A is continues to be one of the biggest and best leagues in Europe. That’s why matches involving the big teams like Juventus, AC Milan, Inter, Napoli and Roma will always attract big audiences.

Bundesliga

Bundesliga logoYou can watch live matches from the German Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 on BT Sport.

If you’ve never watched matches from Germany before, then you should definitely check them out. The standard of football is very high, and they tend to play an attacking game with plenty of goals.

The league is traditionally dominated by Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, and matches involving those two clubs are always very popular with the UK viewing public.

International Matches

FIFA logoThe finals of both the World Cup and European Championships are available exclusively on terrestrial TV, with BBC and ITV sharing the broadcast rights. In terms of qualifying and friendly internationals, these can be watched on the following channels:

  • Sky Sports – England friendlies. Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland qualifiers & friendlies, plus assorted matches involving other major European countries.
  • ITV – England qualifiers.
  • BBC – Women’s internationals, including World Cup.
  • BT Sport – England U-21 home internationals.

Other Competitions

World football logoIf all that wasn’t enough, there are also plenty of other competitions from around the World that are also broadcast live on various UK channels. If you’re one of those people who just can’t get enough live footy, then here’s what else is on offer that we haven’t already mentioned above.

  • Sky Sports – Major League Soccer (MLS), Northern Irish Premiership, EFL Trophy
  • BT Sport – UEFA Super Cup, FA Community Shield, National League, Australian A-League, Women’s Super League, WSL Continental Cup
  • Eleven Sports – Swedish Allsvenskan
  • Premier Sports – Scottish FA Cup, Dutch Eredivisie, MLS, Chinese Super League, Copa America
  • Eurosport – African Cup of Nations, Women’s Champions League
