The Christmas live sports schedule is out! For many of us, when it comes to the Christmas period, we think of time with the family, relaxing in front of a fire with a film on without a care in the world. For many others, it’s a time full of uninterrupted sport, with all the games going on across the following weeks in December and January. Whether you’re a keen football supporter keeping up with Liverpool dominating the Premier League, or after a sore World Cup Final still bearing to watch the rest of the rugby premiership season. From kicking a ball to running with a ball or even using a bat and ball there’s sport to be watched and here’s where to watch it!
Is there any football on over Christmas?
Over the Christmas period, there’s a mountain amount of football to keep even the most up to date fan a run for their money. Sadly though, with the Premier League, many of the matches are split between sports providers including BT Sport, Sky Sports and now Amazon Prime!
New kids on the block Amazon Prime have gone all out this Christmas with full coverage of the Premier League over the 26th and 27th of December. With great reviews coming out of last week’s games you’ll be able to watch the biggest games this Christmas. You also get the live stats and commentary to go with it. But to get a feel of the football atmosphere they have streamable stadium audio so as you watch the game you can chant along with your team and fans as they play feeling like you’ve got a front-row seat to every game.
Although Amazon is the king for boxing day sports, BT takes the crown for New Year’s Day. On January first BT are covering big matches including Manchester United going down to the Emirates to face Arsenal in an attempt to fight for a Champions League spot. Norwich are battling their way out of relegation by going to Crystal Palace. Manchester City starts the New Year by trying to close the gap on Liverpool by securing a win at Everton.
As well as all the football action, there’s a whole host of other top sporting action from around the world. The main attractions being the rugby and cricket.
Where can I watch the rugby over Christmas?
After so much action in the World Cup with England coming so close to victory, rugby is only growing stronger and stronger as a popular sport.

With sole coverage of all Premiership games as well as the Champions Cup, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.

Although we are suffering some cold and bitter weathers, Australia and New Zealand are basking in the sunshine.
