Sky Sports will help you welcome customers back with unrivalled live sport all summer long, on top of European football and international athletics. ​

There’s great anticipation for sport in 2021 with a recent survey among regular pub going sports fans revealing that 75% of them are excited about all the sport coming up.

Communities up and down the country have missed gathering at their local and this summer’s sporting schedule provides the perfect opportunity for pubs to bring customers together to share in the drama and excitement of live sport – something that we’ve all missed.

More than two thirds of pub going sports fans are planning to watch Euro 2020 or the Olympics in the on-trade and almost three quarters said that they would be more likely to choose a pub to watch the Euros and/or Olympics if it also boasted additional sport channels.

Showing additional live sport around Euro 2020 and the Olympics will encourage 70% of out-of-home consumers to stay at pubs longer and 63% to arrive earlier.

A successful Euros will also make consumers even more excited for the next football season and return of the Premier League

What’s coming up this summer on Sky Sports?

This summer there’s non-stop live action to show with Sky Sports plus free-to-air channels, so pubs can welcome customers back for the unbeatable experience of watching unmissable live sport together.
