Sky last minute switch: Newcastle v West Ham replaces Hull as main live relegation match

6 years ago

On Monday Newcastle v West Ham was confirmed as one of the live matches to be shown on relegation Sunday.

Hull v Manchester United and Chelsea v Sunderland were also confirmed as live games.

The mackems saved themselves with a draw at Arsenal last night so are out of the relegation picture.

However, Sky have now taken the unusual step of switching their priority between the other two matches.

Originally Hull was named as the featured relegation match, showing live on their main Sky Sports 1 channel, with build-up from 2pm.

Newcastle were named as the secondary game to be shown on Sky Sports 3, with coverage only starting at 2.55pm, five minutes before kick-off.

Realising their mistake, the vultures at Sky have now flipped the coverage and made the NUFC circus at St. James’ Park their main match.

So you TV watchers get the pleasure of a bonus 55 minutes relegation build-up before kick-off.

Premier League games live on Sky this Sunday (Changed):

Newcastle v West Ham (Sky Sports 1 – coverage beginning 2pm)

Hull v Manchester United (Sky Sports 3 – coverage beginning 2.55pm)

All Premier League matches kick-off at 3pm this Sunday and by 5pm we will know our fate.

As no doubt you will know by now, if Hull win and Newcastle fail to, it is relegation for United.
