Sky signs new Super League deal
February 1, 2012
The switch of the second televised game from the previous Saturday slot has been agreed as part of Sky’s new five-year Super League deal, with the broadcasters keen to fill the gap left on Monday nights when the football season finishes, from late May to early August.
The first Monday night game will be on May 21st, although Sky will already have shown two Monday fixtures by then on bank holidays.
They will stick to Fridays and Saturdays for the first three months of the season, beginning with a double header this weekend.
