Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday show will be simulcast across six channels and digital outlets on Saturday 13 August, the opening day of the Premier League season.

In addition to its regular broadcast on Sky Sports News HQ and Sky Sports 1, Soccer Saturday will be simulcast from 3.00pm on Sky 1, Pick, skysports.com, on Sky Sports’ Facebook and YouTube pages.

Presented by Jeff Stelling, and with a panel of experts and reporters including Charlie Nicholas, Phil Thompson, and Chris Kamara, Soccer Saturday is the ultimate guide through all Saturday’s matches from across the leagues.

Soccer Saturday presenter Jeff Stelling said: “Last season showed us anything can happen in the Premier League and the opening day is always full of surprises, so we’re delighted to open up our coverage of Soccer Saturday to even more people across our channels and online.

“There’s a terrific set of matches scheduled on the opening day of the season including champions Leicester City away to new boys Hull and Ronald Koeman’s first game in charge of Everton at home to Tottenham. Soccer Saturday will be the perfect way to follow every twist and turn.”

This season Sky Sports will show more than 700 matches from eight different leagues across its channels and digital outlets in its biggest ever season of football.
