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.

Man Utd v Leicester City (10th August)

August sees the Premier League return with another season of action on Sky Sports. The opening game sees Manchester United face Leicester at home, which is likely to be a big test for both teams. With United making some interesting signings over the summer and Leicester attempting to stay up after the influx of decent teams from the Championship, this game seems like a perfect way to kick off the season.

Swansea City v Leeds United (21st August)

Sky Sports is the only place you can catch Football League matches, with this year’s Championship perhaps the most competitive in years. Newly relegated Swansea will be hoping to take 3 points off Leeds when they travel to the League’s only Welsh club.

Leeds looked energised in their first game, with veteran manager Bielsa appearing to inject some creativity into the Whites. Whatever the outcome, this is sure to be a fast-paced and thrilling match. 

Barcelona v Sevilla (12th August)

Sky Sports now has exclusive rights to La Liga, allowing you to catch games featuring some of the world’s best sides. Barcelona will be hoping to continue their domination over the league with 3 points against Sevilla - a match that may seem a sure thing but could still be competitive, as Sevilla are no pushovers.

With both Messi and Neymar both having a disappointing World Cup, it’ll be interesting to see how the two bounce back in La Liga. With the club surely chasing Champions League glory as well as victory in the league Barcelona are absolutely a team to keep track of this season. 

Belgium Grand Prix (26th August)

If football isn’t your preferred sport, don’t worry. Sky Sports offers action from the world’s biggest sports and competitions, including exclusive access to the F1 Championship. With this season looking to be another Hamilton domination, it’ll be interesting to see if the likes of Vettel, Raikkonen and Bottas can mount a comeback in this mid-stage of the season.

Pick up a Sky Sports Week Pass to check out the full weekend of racing action, including all 3 of the practice laps and the qualifying round. This makes Sky Sports the ultimate destination for F1 fans.
