Sky Sports has shown 49 of the 50 most watched Premier League matches for a third successive season.

Ahead of the final day of the season where Sky Sports will show three live games, featuring Manchester United at home to Bournemouth, their top four rivals Manchester City at Swansea and Stoke City hosting West Ham, the ratings confirmation shows Sky Sports has consistently offered the most viewed matches for three years.

Every Premier League team features in those 49 matches, showing the importance of the breadth across the competition to Sky Sports’ coverage.

Of the 200 biggest and most watched Premier League matches over the past three seasons, 194 of them have been on Sky Sports. Additionally, the entire top 100 in that time have been live on Sky Sports underlining that more of the games that matter are on Sky Sports.

From next season it will get even better for Sky Sports viewers with more Premier League games than ever before, increasing to 126 matches each season with 26 top picks and Friday Night Football for the first time.

Gary Hughes, head of football for Sky Sports said: “No one will ever forget this season and Sky Sports has offered the complete story from start to finish.  Sky Sports is the first choice for football fans, and things are only going to get better next season with even more matches, even more top picks and even more drama.”
