Sky Sports has signed a new deal meaning more EFL football will be screened than ever before.

The deal will see Sky remain the home of the Championship, League One, League Two, the Carabao Cup and the Checktrade Tophy until 2024. It will exclusively broadcast 183 matches from those competitions – a 26 per cent increase on the current deal.

David Rey, managing director of Sky Business, said: "From 2019 we will be giving pubs and clubs the chance to show more EFL games than ever before which means more opportunities to attract in football fans and make money.

"The EFL appeals to football fans in every region up and down the country and is really important for helping venues to drive trade right across the week so we're delighted to continue to offer the pick of the action."

Sky's football package also includes 126 Premier League games and 30 matches from the SPFL.
