Blackpool Miss Out On Initial Sky Sports Dates

Sky Sports have announced, in consultation with the Football League, that 9 live Championship matches featuring 14 different clubs will be shown over the first 4 months of the new season. Further games will be confirmed in due course.

The live league matches are :-

Sat Aug 9 Birmingham - Sheff Utd

Sat Aug 16 Bristol City - Derby County
Sat Aug 30 Watford - Ipswich
Sat Oct 4 Coventry City - Southampton
Sat Oct 25 Reading - QPR

Also in August Sky Sports will screen 2 games from the First Round of the Carling Cup - Chester City vs Leeds United on Tuesday August 12, and Wycombe Wanderers vs Birmingham City the following night.

In 2008-9 Sky Sports will screen a total of 70 live matches across all three divisions of the Coca-Cola Football League, so hopefully the Seasiders time is still to come....
