Virgin Ready for Big Week of Live Coverage

Virgin Media Television will broadcast more than 40 hours of sport over the coming days with exclusive action from the Cheltenham Festival, the Champions League and hopefully the Guinness Six Nations.

Live coverage of all four days of the Cheltenham Festival will get underway tomorrow with the Champion Hurdle taking centre stage on Day one of the National Hunt Festival where Irish hopes of another winning year are high.

Virgin Media will take full coverage of the ITV programming that will broadcast live from the racecourse with expert commentary and analysis from Tony McCoy and many more.

Sport for Business will have a daily update on events at Cheltenham focusing on the commercial side and taking a look in particular at the campaigns of Paddy Power and Bulmers who have major partnerships in place at and around the Festival.

A highlight of the Champions’ League action this week is likely to be Liverpool’s bid to overturn a first-leg defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid and continue the defence of their crown by progressing to the Quarter Final stage.

Tottenham’s’ game against RB Leipzig and Man United’s trip away to Lask in Austria on Thursday will also be shown live.

The action will round out with coverage of the remaining games in the Guinness Six Nations when Scotland take on Wales in Cardiff and, if it goes ahead, Ireland travel to Paris for their game against France.
