Sky Sports 5 schedules up to 75 exclusive live matches

Sky Sports 5, the self proclaimed home of European football, will launch on the 12th August with a UEFA Super Cup match between Real Madrid and Sevilla. Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected to feature prominently in the match, which takes place at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The game is just the first of up to 600 live European football matches available on the channel next season, with many of the stars and teams from the 2014 FIFA World Cup making an appearance. In fact, viewers can catch the world cup winners Germany in the European Qualifiers for the UEFA EURO 2016 finals in France, starting with their first fixture against Scotland on Sunday 7th September.

In the opening five weeks, the channel will be broadcasting 24 European Qualifiers, 18 UEFA Champions League fixtures, a number of weekend triple-headers from La Liga and up to three games a week from Holland's top division, Eredivisie.

Barney Francis, Sky Sports managing director, said:

We promised the ultimate European football channel and this opening schedule shows we're delivering from day one. Only on Sky Sports 5 can viewers enjoy Messi, Bale and Ronaldo week in, week out in some of the best European competitions. We'll tell the complete story from the European Qualifiers campaign, offer 129 UEFA Champions League matches and so much more, including weekly live coverage of the biggest teams and players in Spanish and Dutch football. There's no better place for fans of European football.

Sky Sports 5 is available to all Sky Sports customers at no extra cost as part of their package. As an added incentive, anyone signing up for the new channel, including new and existing customers, will also get two years free Sky Broadband Unlimited.
