With Europe set to go head to head with America in the battle for The Ryder Cup, Sky Sports will bring 240 hours of coverage on a dedicated channel bringing viewers closer to one of the biggest events in sport.
Sky Sports 4 will become Sky Sports Ryder Cup on September 26th offering viewers ten days of programming primarily focusing on live coverage, highlights, breakfast shows, archive material and Ryder Cup specials. All three days of competition will be shown exclusively live on Sky Sports and play will also be simulcast on Sky Sports 1 from Friday to Sunday.
Sky Sports Mix – the new channel available to all Sky TV customers – will broadcast live coverage of the opening ceremony as well as a selection of support programming.
Sky Sports Head of Golf Jason Wessely said: “The Ryder Cup stands alongside the biggest sporting events in the world and it is only right that we have a channel on Sky Sports for our viewers to soak in the excitement it creates. By offering fans ten days of Ryder Cup programming we hope to capture all of the history, passion and drama from what should be a boisterous American crowd and a fantastic competition.”
