NOW Sports

Brought to you by NOW.

A massive weekend of sport.

There is some top-quality sporting action on TV over the weekend, from the Premier League to the Heineken Champions Cup, Formula 1 to golf and GAA.

And here is how to watch it with a NOW Sports and Sports Extra Membership.

Friday, May 6.

The weekend’s sporting coverage gets underway with the Wells Fargo Championship, which runs from Thursday to Sunday. Rory McIlroy won the PGA Tour event last year and this year’s edition is stacked with some of the world’s best golfers.

You can stream all four days of action from TPC Potomac with a NOW Sports Membership, with coverage beginning at 6:30 pm on Friday.

The sporting action remains stateside with the return of Formula 1, and the inaugural Miami Grand Prix. After four races so far this year, Ferrari’s Charles Le Clerc leads the standings with 89 points, ahead of reigning champion, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who has earned 59 points so far.

You can stream the Miami GP across the weekend with a NOW Sports Membership, with the action getting underway at 6 pm on Friday.

Saturday, May 7.

Saturday’s sporting action starts with Celtic v Hearts in the Scottish Premiership. The Hoops are six points clear of Rangers and will be crowned champions if they win on Saturday and Rangers drop points this weekend. You can stream the game with a NOW Sports Extra Membership (Kick-off at 12 pm).

The focus then switches to the Premier League and Chelsea v Wolves as the Blues look to secure qualification for next season’s Champions League. You can stream the match from Stamford Bridge with a NOW Sports Extra Membership (Kick-off at 3 pm).

The next Premier League game on Saturday is Brighton v Manchester United, with kick-off at 5:30 pm. You can watch the match with a NOW Sports Membership.

In the final Premier League game of the day, Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield in the pick of the weekend’s football matches (Kick-off at 7:45 pm). Liverpool must win to keep their title challenge alive, while Spurs can’t afford to drop points as they look to finish in the top four.

You can stream the game with a NOW Sports Extra Membership.

There is also GAA, rugby and MMA action on Saturday. In the Heineken Champions Cup, two Irish provinces are in action in two massive games at the quarter-final stage of the tournament.

First up, Munster play Toulouse at the Aviva Stadium (kick-off at 3 pm). Munster have won more Heineken Champions Cup quarter-finals than any other team in the tournament’s history (14). They have also beaten Toulouse twice at this stage of the competition and have won four of their previous seven games against the Top 14 side.

Yet, while history is on Munster’s side, Toulouse have Antoine Dupont, the reigning world player of the year in their team.

Leinster then face Leicester Tigers at 5:30 pm in a match that is too close to call. The Irish province have beaten Leicester in six of their last 11 Heineken Champions Cup games, but have lost three of their last four matches away to the English side.

Leinster and Leicester have played each other four times in the knockout stages of the Heineken Champions Cup, with two wins apiece. The performance of James Lowe, the tournament’s top try-scorer with eight tries so far, could be crucial for Leinster on Saturday. You can stream both Heineken Champions Cup games with a Now Sports Extra Membership.

In GAA, Cork face Kerry in the Munster Senior Football Championship semi-finals, with the match getting underway at 6 pm. You can stream the match with a NOW Sports Membership.

The day’s sporting action wraps up with UFC 274, where Charles Oliveira will defend his lightweight title against Justin Gaethje in the main event.

The prelims for UFC 274 begin at 1 am, and the main event starts at 4 am. You can stream the event with a NOW Sports Extra Membership.

Sunday, May 8.

On Sunday, there’s a Premier League doubleheader that will prove vital at both ends of the table. Arsenal face Leeds United in the first game of the day, with the Gunners are chasing a spot in the top four and Leeds are drifting dangerously towards relegation (Kick-off at 2 pm).

In the final Premier League game of the weekend, Manchester City host Newcastle United, (Kick-off at 4:30 pm). You can stream Sunday’s games with a NOW Sports Membership.

In F1, the Miami Grand Prix final race takes place on Sunday, with coverage beginning at 7 pm. While the Wells Fargo Championship wraps up on Sunday, with the final day’s play starting at 5:30 pm. You can stream the golf and F1 with a NOW Sports Membership.
