Leeds (h) lined up for live Sky Sports broadcast

United's trip to the Madejski in November has been chosen for live broadcast by Sky Sports

4 October 2019

Our home fixture against Leeds United on Tuesday 26th November, kick-off 8pm, has been selected as a match which will be broadcast live by Sky Sports.

There will be no change to the date or the time of kick-off when Marcelo Bielsa's side travel to Madejski Stadium next month, but this fixture will be available to watch live on Sky Sports in the UK as well as through the EFL’s international broadcast partners around the world.

Across the last six seasons, spoils between the clubs have been shared when Leeds have travelled to RG2 - Reading winning twice, Leeds emerging triumphant twice and stalemates earning a share of the points on two other occasions.

In September 2013, a trademark last gasp goal from Adam Le Fondre earned the Royals a slender but important 1-0 win over United.

Then in April 2017, Jaap Stam's side stole a 1-0 win with a superb strike from Yann Kermorgant as the Royals stormed towards a play-off place at faltering Leeds' expense.

But Leeds won handsomely here last March courtesy of a spectacular brace from Pablo Hernandez, while Luke Murphy and Sam Byram were our undoers in February 2015. 

A number of midweek matches are of course available on the red button again this season, but Leeds' visit to the RG2 will be Sky’s featured fixture in this midweek tranche of games, involving the regular TV production and available to watch both here and abroad.

This will be our third fixture scheduled for full live Sky Sports broadcast to date this season - our 3-0 home win over Cardiff City was featured by the broadcaster in August and our visit to Loftus Road later this month has also been selected by the broadcaster.

That does mean that the Leeds (h) fixture will therefore not be available to watch via a live stream on iFollow, either in the UK or around the world. However, subscribers to iFollow will still be able to listen to live audio commentary.
