While politics and sports associations cannot yet provide any concrete answers as to when live sports will be available again, fans do not have to starve: Sky has put together a special program of football and Formula 1 for the current weekend.

Bundesliga soccer with Matthäus, Kahn, Kirsten and Elber, Formula 1 with Schumi, tennis with Agassi and Edberg, the Chinese Virtual Grand Prix with Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc and Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and “Wontorra – Alone At home ”with Michael Preetz: The new special sports program offers as much substitution therapy as possible for those who are withdrawing – until the balls roll again and the engines roar again.

Football on the weekend

So starts today Saturday at 2.45 p.m. the new format “That’s football – the best of everything”. It is about very special scenes from past games that have remained in the fans’ permanent memories for various reasons. As part of the 15-minute program, these scenes are shown again and partly commented on by the protagonists themselves, partly by the voices of Sky Sport.

From 3:00 p.m. Sky shows the “hisTOOORische Sky Conference”, which features the 30th matchday of the current season this week. In the five duels of the past that Sky is showing in a live conference, soccer fans can look forward to a total of 21 goals this time.

Sky Sport 2 HD is all about the legendary home of Liverpool FC on Saturday. With the motto “This is Anfield” shows Sky all day long “Reds” home games, including from 9.45 p.m. the sensational 4-0 win over FC Barcelona in the semi-final second leg of the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League.

On Sky Sport News HD Jörg Wontorra reports again on Sunday. In “Wontorra – alone at home” this time he greets Michael Preetz with a switch. The managing director of sport at Hertha BSC talks about the newly hired coach Bruno Labbadia and the course of the season so far, which for Berliners was primarily shaped by the Jürgen Klinsmann staff. It is also about the future of Hertha after Corona, for which the Berliner could be better equipped than other clubs through investor Lars Windhorst and the resulting greater independence from traditional sources of income. The half hour interview will take place on Sunday at 10.45 a.m. broadcast. Repetitions are scheduled for Monday 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.

The Bundesliga weekend will be rounded off with some of the greatest moments in Bundesliga history in the “Bundesliga Collection” on Saturday and Sunday.

Formula 1 on Sunday

Also on Sunday it gets loud again: Sky shows classic Formula 1 cars from the past 25 years all day long in full length, including the Belgian Grand Prix in 1995 and 1998 and the Hockenheimring race in 2000.

From 6.30pmr transmits Sky the China Virtual Grand Prix live. Sascha Roos comments on the virtual race, in which Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc and Thibaut Courtois, goalkeeper of Real Madrid, take part.
