BT Sport To Cover Conference Football

The Football Conference and BT Sport have reached agreement for BT Sport to cover 25 games from the Conference Premier. Plus the 4 play off semi-finals and the final at Wembley.  Coverage will start in August.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said:

We are delighted that we’ve been able to invest in the non-League game and play our part in helping community clubs to flourish. We are not just interested in the glamour of the Premier League; we’d like to bring the excitement and grit of the Conference Premier to a new audience, as well as its existing strong fan base.

Brian Lee, chairman of The Football Conference, said:

We welcome the opportunity to be joining the revolutionary BT Sport, which we are sure will be a ‘game tv_cameraman_featchanger ‘ for ourselves and BT Sport. We feel that the prospect of showcasing our wonderful brand of live football to a potentially mind-blowing number of viewers can only enhance our product. We hope sponsors of clubs and competition alike recognise the huge step that we are now undertaking. We sincerely hope this is the start of a long and fruitful partnership for both parties.

The first set of games to be shown have not yet been announced. We expect that we’ll know soon. There are some good candidates for being chosen, such as Wrexham v Chester on Saturday 31st August.

BT Sport are new to the televised football game and will be showing 38 English Premier League games, plus live FA Cup, Europa League and Scottish Premier League matches, plus action from the FA Women’s Super League.
