Sky Sports agree new three-year deal for NFL coverage

Sky Sports has struck a three-year renewal deal with the NFL which kicks off tomorrow with the Dallas Cowboys taking on the New York Giants.

The deal, which runs until the close of the 2014 season, includes 64 live games per season including three live games each week, playoff matches and the Super Bowl.

The agreement will see the partnership between Sky and the NFL run into its 20th year and follows recent rights renewal deals the broadcaster has struck with bodies including the Premier League, SPL, England and Wales Cricket Board and Rugby Football League.

Two live prime time fixtures will be shown every Sunday kicking off at 6pm and 9.15pm, three Thanksgiving Day clashes, plus regular matches on Thursday nights. There will also be live coverage of every wild card, divisional and Conference Championship playoff match and the annual season ending Super Bowl.

The NFL's RedZone score update show every Sunday of the regular season will be available via the red button, along with NFL Total Access twice a week and watch out for news of exciting new regular season midweek coverage as well.

Managing Director for the NFL UK Alistair Kirkwood said: "We are delighted to extend the relationship between the NFL and Sky Sports into its 20th year. Through Sky’s coverage the game has attracted many new fans in this country, and we look forward to another three seasons of excellent coverage.”

  In total, over 60 games will be shown live, beginning with the season-opening clash between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants on September 5.
