Sky Sports has won the rights to the ‘Monday Night Football’, as part of a new five-year agreement for even more live American Football from the NFL.

From 2015, Sky Sports viewers will be able to watch over 80 live fixtures a season, including up to five games each week of the regular season, the play-offs and Super Bowl.

Sky Sports’ coverage will also include all matches from the NFL’s International Series as teams travel to the UK for regular season match ups, including sell out games at Wembley.

Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis said: “We’re delighted to be awarded the rights to Monday Night Football as part of this fantastic new deal for even more live American Football. The agreement means Sky Sports viewers can enjoy all the drama, excitement and unpredictability from the NFL until at least 2019. Our partnership with the NFL spans two decades and we look forward to helping the sport continue its huge growth in popularity in the UK and Ireland for years to come.”
