NOW TV allows you to tune into the most essential sports action with the Sky Sports Pass, completely contract-free.

A Premier League player takes a set-piece

With daily, weekly and monthly passes available, users can keep up with all their favourite sports throughout the calendar or just tune in for a big match day. Sky Sports has a year-round sports calendar, packed with exclusive coverage of the biggest events. From Premier League football and F1 to the latest cricket and golf, the NOW TV Sky Sports Pass is your gateway to all the essential sports. Here’s the best of what’s to come this month.

Southampton v Manchester City (13th May)

The Premier League’s final weekend is upon us and though the table seems largely set, there are a few twists and turns we might see late into the game. Southampton all but secured safety from relegation with a win over Everton, but could still go down if they concede enough goals (which, to be fair, is unlikely).

Manchester City will be looking for a win to see off the season with 100 points, something that’s never been achieved before in the Premier League. City already has the record wins in a season and will hope to bump this figure up to 32 on their last game. Will this ever be beaten? We’ll have to wait until next season to find out. 

Liverpool vs Brighton (13th May)

Another dark horse game this weekend could be when Brighton visit Liverpool. Brighton has already secured safety by hitting 40 points despite their tough run, with the in-form Liverpool being the final test of their debut season in the Premier League.

Liverpool might consider this game a write-off due to their eyes being firmly set on the Champions League final later this month. Whether Klopp plays the reserves or risks injuring some of his big players whilst getting them some game time is yet to be seen, with Liverpool’s test against Real Madrid their biggest match in years.

Championship Playoffs (11th-26th May)

May is a big month for the Championship clubs that have made it to the play-off positions, with both legs of the semi-finals and final all taking place within a few weeks. Derby must fend off Fulham whilst Middleborough will play Aston Villa for a chance to head to the play-off final on the 26th.

The winner of the playoffs will join Wolves and Cardiff in the Premier League next season, making this a huge opportunity for the teams who have already had to endure the slog that is the Championship. Seeing the passion from both the players and the fans in these matches is always a treat, so tune in via NOW TV Sky Sports.

Monaco Grand Prix (27th May)

The F1 season is now in full swing, with the competition already looking like it’ll be a close one. With Hamilton and Vettel both gunning for the title and the controversy between the 2 Red Bull drivers hotting up, you’ll want to catch every race via Sky Sports F1 on NOW TV.

Whilst May also features the Spanish Grand Prix, Monaco is the date every F1 fan looks forward to thanks to the enchanting glamour of the location and the uniqueness of the track, which is raced in the streets of Monte Carlo.
