Sky Sports presents another action-packed month for pubs to keep their customers entertained, with one of the most fiercely contested Premier League title races reaching its climax; the Monaco Grand Prix is back; and the summer of cricket begins for England with the ICC Cricket World Cup ahead of both men and women’s Ashes in August and September.
With the Premier League 18/19 season drawing to a close, will reigning champions Manchester City retain their title, or will Liverpool be able to claim their first Premier League trophy?
There’s also the Championship play-offs to look forward to as Sheffield United, Derby County, Middlesbrough and West Brom battle it out in the top six, while the merest slip up could see current league toppers Norwich City and Leeds drop into play-off territory. It’s going to be a race to the finish, and three teams are going to head into next season bitterly disappointed.
Sky Sports coverage of the Majors continues as the 2019 US PGA Championship tees off on 16th May. This year marks the 101st playing of the tournament, which was won last year by Brooks Koepka, beating Tiger Woods by two strokes. The former World Number 1 will be looking to repeat his success against rivals Justin Rose and current World Number 1 Dustin Johnson for the $1,980,000 prize.
A highlight of every F1 fan’s calendar is back as the prestige, glamour and challenge of the Monaco Grand Prix takes place on 26th May. Last year, it was Daniel Ricciardo who took the chequered flag for Team Red Bull, but can the Australian recreate his success now he’s with Renault? And the changes to F1 this season result in more overtaking on a circuit that famously punishes those who attempt to do so?
At the end of May, Cricket comes home as the ICC Cricket World Cup kicks off with England hosting South Africa at The Oval. After a shaky start, England found their feet in their tour of the West Indies and go into the World Cup as one of the most feared teams in limited overs cricket.
The start of June packs all the punches as Anthony Joshua makes his US debut on 1st June to defend his WBA ‘Super’, IBF and WBO belts against Andy Ruiz Jr, live on Sky Sports Box Office. Ruiz Jr is fresh from a destructive win over Alexander Dimitrenko, and he intends to rip away Joshua’s belts in his bid to be crowned as Mexico’s first world heavyweight champion. Can Joshua remain an undefeated champion?
