BBC broadcasting six live Ulster Championship matches

BBC SPORT NI will have live TV coverage of six matches in this year’s Ulster Senior Football Championship as well as broadcasting deferred highlights of the other two fixtures.

There will also be live commentary of every game on BBC Radio Ulster and comprehensive previews, match-reports and analysis on the BBC Sport NI website and digital channels.

The TV coverage starts with a double-header on November 1 that begins with Donegal v Tyrone at Ballybofey followed by Derry v Armagh at Celtic Park. Highlights of Monaghan’s preliminary round match against Cavan will be shown between the two live games.

Mark Sidebottom will present the television programming and will be joined by All-Ireland winners Oisin McConville and Peter Canavan. Donegal’s Martin McHugh, who lifted the Sam Maguire in 1992, will also provide analysis, as will former All-Star and All-Ireland finalist Martin Clarke.

The coverage continues on 7 November with the game between Antrim and Cavan/Monaghan followed by the quarter-final match between Fermanagh and Down on November 8.

BBC Sport NI will broadcast highlights of the first semi-final on 14 November before screening the second semi-final live on 15 November.

The TV coverage concludes with the Ulster Senior Football Championship Final on Sunday 22 November.
