Sky Sports will show eight games simultaneously on the final day of the Premier League season, including on its dedicated Formula 1 channel.

Sky Sports F1 will be enlisted to broadcast live Premier League coverage of this season's final matchday on Sunday, July 26.

The unique circumstances stemming from the coronavirus pandemic have led to every game being broadcast live on TV as part of Project Restart - including all 10 games taking place at the same time on the last day.

Sky Sports will show an unprecedented eight Premier League games live simultaneously, with BT Sport broadcasting the other two.

The broadcasters have yet to finalise their picks, but the sheer number of games means that Sky will have to utilise its other sports channels in order to make all eight of its matches available to customers.

Different games will be broadcast on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League (simulcast on Pick and Sky One), Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports Action, Sky Sports Arena and Sky Sports Mix, with a channel for the eighth fixture yet to be confirmed.

Two of the Sky games will be broadcast in Ultra HD, while BT Sport will show one of its two games on BT Sport Ultimate for BT TV and Virgin Media customers.

By default games are offered with artificial crowd noise and given the number of games being broadcast it is currently unclear whether Sky will offer a crowd-free audio option on the final matchday.
