GAA fans are also in for a treat on Saturday, as the Football Championships gets underway with a doubleheader on the NOW Sports Membership.

Sunday, May 1.

Sunday's sport features three huge football matches. First up, Celtic play Rangers in a game that could decide the Scottish Premiership title race.

Celtic go into the game six points ahead of their rivals with four games remaining. If they beat Rangers at Celtic Park, they will all but seal the championship. Kick-off is at 12 pm and you can stream it live with a NOW Sports Membership.

The focus then switches to the Premier League, where Everton play Chelsea at 2 pm at Goodison Park. If Frank Lampard doesn't oversee a win against his former team, Everton will take one step closer to getting relegated from the top flight.
