Sky Sports announce next live Irish League fixture - and it's not in Belfast

Sky Sports have announced the next Irish League fixture that will appear live on TV.

Dungannon's League Cup success was broadcast by Sky Sports last weekend and their cameras will now travel south to see Warrenpoint Town host title-chasing Crusaders live at the newly named Q Radio Arena at Milltown.

The game will be played on Monday March 26 (kick-off 7.45pm).

It's a first ever live television broadcast for Warrenpoint Town, and the fifth Danske Premiership fixture of the current 2017/2018 season to be shown to a national audience.

The previous games shown on Sky this season have all been in Belfast - a source of much consternation among fans of provincial clubs. First Glentoran hosted Crusaders. Then Linfield's home game against the Crues was broadcast, as was Ballymena United's visit to the Glens.

Then Cliftonville v Glenavon was shown last month before the League Cup decider at Windsor Park.
