Sky Sports Launch Their Schedule For The 2017 GAA Championship

By Ellen McConville Updated

Sky Sports have announced their broadcasting schedule for the 2017 GAA Championship. Following on from signing a five-year deal with the GAA in December, Sky Sports will show 20 live games throughout the Championship this summer.

The first match to be broadcast this season will be the quarterfinal of Dublin against either Carlow or Wexford, on the 3rd of June as the Dubs attempt a seven-in-a-row in Leinster. Amongst other games, Sky Sports will have exclusive rights to the most talked-about hurling match of the summer: the Leinster semifinal between Brian Cody's Kilkenny and (most likely) Wexford and a suspended Davy Fitz.

The live coverage will continue throughout the season culminating with the hurling and football All-Ireland finals in September.

Former Monaghan footballer Dick Clerkin is a new addition to the panel of pundits alongside Jim McGuinness, Peter Canavan, James Horan, Jamesie O'Connor, JJ Delaney and Ollie Canning. Speaking at the event, JD Buckley, the Managing Director at Sky said:

“Our partnership with the GAA has gone from strength to strength and we’re really excited by this being the first season in our new five-year partnership deal. Our insightful line up of GAA experts will truly bring viewers inside the game like never before. We are excited about the future and how Sky Sports can continue to stand out with continuous innovation, knowledge and expertise at the heart of our GAA coverage.”
