We are delighted to announce that Sky Sports is being installed at the Langham Club and will be available to watch from Friday 27th August, in time for the Bank Holiday weekend.
Live sports on Sky this season include: 128 Premier League games, 168 Football League games, Bundesliga football, World Cup Qualifiers, Men’s T20 World Cup cricket, Ryder Cup golf, Premier League darts and lots more besides.
The Committee are aware that live sport is something that members have consistently requested for several years but until now the installation of Sky Sports has not been feasible from a financial standpoint.
Fortunately the Club is now in a position to be able to make this investment, and Sky have offered us a compelling deal, so we are subscribing to Sky Sports for 12 months on a trial basis. BT Sport were unable to offer us a compelling deal and therefore we will not be subscribing to BT Sport in the short term, although we will keep this under review.
As you can imagine, this is a significant financial investment and commitment for the Club, and we will review the impact on turnover on a regular basis. We will of course undertake a lot of local promotion activity, but if our Members would like the Club to maintain a Sky Sports subscription in the long term, the best way of doing that will be to come down to the Club, watch plenty of sports and buy plenty of drinks over the bar!
