A Leeds United match moved for Sky TV? Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

The Leeds match away at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United will now kick-off 15 minutes later than originally scheduled and will be show live on TV.

Leeds is a staple of Sky Sports Championship coverage, as the Whites are usually one of, if not the most, televised Championship club in the country. Leeds also pull in very strong television viewing numbers and yet do not pull in nearly the amount of revenue that the Premier League clubs do, much to the frustration of Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani, who has proposed a “Premier League 2” in order to cash in on some of the crazy amounts of money that the Premier League is collecting for its television broadcast rights while Leeds, along with a few other Championship teams, actually end up with far more domestic viewer totals.

Anyway, for those who aren’t going to make the journey to South Yorkshire to see Leeds take on the Blades, you can now (legally) watch the match at home with a pint in your hand.
