Festive Football on Sky Sports
See 2017 out, and the New Year in, with a bang with more than 50 live games on Sky Sports
From the Premier League title race, the tension of the Sky Bet EFL play-offs and the climax in La Liga, as well as the start of fresh competition for the home nations, football in 2018 on Sky Sports promises yet more unrivalled drama and emotion.
Whether you are watching on our dedicated channels at home or following on the go with the Sky Sports app, we will make sure you feel it all. Here is a taste of what's in store for football fans...
Premier League - will anyone stop Man City?
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are leading the way in the Premier League but though they head into 2018 fighting for silverware on four fronts, Jose Mourinho has warned that nearby foes Manchester United will battle for Premier League glory "until the very last match".
Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all tussling for a top-four spot - look out for showdowns between Arsenal and Chelsea and Liverpool and Tottenham in the opening months of the year - while Sean Dyche's Burnley are mixing it with the heavyweights; will they take their fine form into the New Year?
The scrap for survival is sure to be just as fiercely fought. Will Rafa Benitez inspire an upturn in form at Newcastle? And will a change in manager see Swansea edge towards safety? We will bring you the big clashes at the top and bottom - and if you are on the move, you can watch goals and highlights from every game in the Sky Sports app.
Sky Bet EFL - who will get promoted?
Could 2018 be a golden year for Wolves? They are well placed at the summit as they seek a return to the top flight for the first time since the 2011/12 season but who could be joining them? Cardiff, Bristol City and Aston Villa are among the sides in the mix, with a gruelling Sky Bet Championship schedule and potential January arrivals sure to separate the hopefuls from the real contenders.
Wigan and Luton are hoping to seal promotion from Leagues One and Two respectively, while the breathless drama of the play-offs is sure to make for an unmissable May. We will bring you every game - plus the Wembley finals - live on Sky Sports Football and remember, you can watch EFL goals from every game on skysports.com and the app.
La Liga - will Real close in on Barca?
Spanish football fans can watch more than 300 games throughout the 2017/18 campaign on the Sky Sports Football channel and red button and the action continues to come thick and fast in 2018.
Ernesto Valverde's Barcelona are looking down on rivals Real Madrid heading into a new year - will Cristiano Ronaldo and his team-mates close the gap or will city rivals Atletico mount the strongest challenge?
As another bumper season of La Liga continues on Sky Sports Football, fans can enjoy live interactive commentary for all Real Madrid and Barcelona matches this season on skysports.com and the Sky Sports apps.
