Sky Sports Leeds strikes again: Sky moves Sheffield United match at Elland Road

Another Yorkshire derby gets moved for TV

Sky Sports can’t get enough of Leeds United.

The match at Elland Road against Sheffield United on 16 March 2019 will now kick off at 12.30 PM and will be televised on Sky Sports.

Leeds are one of the biggest draws for Sky Sports, and this will almost certainly not be the last game to have the kickoff moved for TV reasons. Of course, having the game televised is convenient for fans who can’t make it to Elland Road and for overseas fans who will likely be able to see it through their local EFL rights holders without having to pay the £5 to view the match on LUTV.

Anyway, I’m sure the people at Sky are getting ready to drown out any naughty chants with other crowd noise as we speak.
