Sky Sports will make Cricket World Cup Final free to air – but only if England qualify

Sky wants the final to reach as wide an audience as possible

Sky Sports has announced it will make the final of the Cricket World Cup available on free-to-air television, but only if England qualify.

Should England reach the final at Lord’s on Sunday 14th July, Sky said it wants to ensure the match reaches as wide an audience as possible.

Sky UK and Ireland chief executive Stephen van Rooyen said: “We are proud to be the broadcaster for a home Cricket World Cup – one of the world’s biggest and most exciting sporting events.

“Our aim has always been to celebrate what could be a ‘once in a generation’ moment of a home team in a big final on home soil. So, if England reach the final, we will make the match available to everyone so the whole country can be part of a rare and special big sporting moment.”
