It is true that Sky’s Cup final coverage begins at 2.30pm, as stated on the Sports desk?
If so … I find this shocking. This is just 30 minutes before the kick-off, for one of the biggest cup finals in recent years. Last season, the build-up was exceptional and began at miday. The BBC programme starts at 1pm.
I don’t know, but that’s probably not true. I mean, come on, even when Arsenal play United in the league there’s more build-up than that. But, never mind, because for the first time in years I shall be in Cardiff! And this time, I shall be expecting an 8-0 drubbing.
Unless the schedule changes last minute the programme WILL last from 2.30pm until 6pm on Sky Sports 1. This is due to Sky Sports’ decision to show every play off match live, as Macclesfield v Lincoln is on from midday till half 2 on SS1. No doubt Sky Sports News will have extra build up & reaction on the day itself & the week leading up to the match though.
