Sky Sports Transfer Deadline Day Program Will Not Be Televised In United States

sky sports transfer window Sky Sports Transfer Deadline Day Program Will Not Be Televised In United States

The annual event that is the Transfer Deadline Day program on Sky Sports, which has been shown live on television the past few years by FOX Soccer, will not be televised on US television this Monday.

The summer transfer window in England closes on Monday night at 11pm UK time/6pm ET. During previous years, we’ve been entertained by last day transfer stories, Peter Odemwingie showing up unannounced at QPR’s Loftus Road, through-the-car-window interviews with Harry Redknapp, joyous supporters celebrating a transfer signing in front of the Sky Sports cameras and Premier League clubs signing massive stars. All on the last day.

When FOX Soccer pulled the plug on Sky Sports News on US television on June 30, it was a huge blow for soccer fans who enjoyed watching the daily news program that featured news, interviews and entertaining personas such as Jim White. Now, on the biggest day of the year for viewers of Sky Sports News, soccer fans in the United States will be missing out on its coverage.

In lieu of there being no Sky Sports News on US television this Monday, World Soccer Talk will have a live Google Hangout On Air where we’ll provide you with all of the news, analysis, video and images from the transfer deadline day.

We’ll feature analysis from World Soccer Talk senior writer Kartik Krishnaiyer, EPL Talk Podcast pundit Morgan Green and World Soccer Talk’s editor/publisher Christopher Harris.

Coverage will begin this Monday, Labor Day, at 8am ET and will continue through the day. Tune in and watch the live video.

RSVP today as a reminder. Or visit World Soccer Talk on Monday for our Transfer Deadline Day special.
