Sky signs new Super League deal

February 1, 2012

The 17th rugby Super League season commences this week with the announcement that Sky will televise matches on Monday nights as well as Fridays throughout the summer.

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.
