Sky Sports’ live GAA games announced: 14 fixtures confirmed for 2020 championships

Sky Sports has announced its 14 live games for the upcoming GAA Championships.

The coverage will get underway on Saturday, October 24 with the Leinster Hurling Championship meeting between Dublin and Laois. Mattie Kenny’s charges will be seeking revenge for last year’s shock defeat.

The following week has a double-header, with old rivals facing off in provincial championships. First up will be Monaghan vs Cavan in the Ulster Football Championship, before Cork and Waterford face off in the Munster Hurling Championship.

The third weekend of action sees Dessie Farrell take charge of his first championship game, as reigning All-Ireland football champs Dublin open their campaign against Westmeath. This will be preceded by a knockout hurling tie between two sides beaten in the provincial championships.

In light of the limits on spectators due to coronavirus restrictions, Sky Sports has decided to show all games live on Sky Sports Mix. The move means all Sky customers, even those who don’t have a Sky Sports subscription, will get to watch the action and be inside the game. Sky Sports Mix is available in approximately 900,000 homes in Ireland, on Sky channel 416 and Virgin channel 409.

The coverage of live games will be complemented by Inside The Game, our weekly GAA discussion show every Wednesday evening on Sky Sports Mix.

You can stay up to date with all the latest news, interviews and analysis on SkySports.com/GAA, the Sky Sports App, and by following @SkySportsGAA on Twitter and Instagram.
