Sky is set to screen the London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea and the final day of the Ryder Cup at the same time.
Sports fans who have Sky Sports as part of their digital TV packages face a tough decision on October 3rd 2010.
The bundle provider is set to broadcast both the final day of golf’s Ryder Cup – in which Europe’s best take on the US – and the north London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea.
With a scheduled kick-off time of 16:00 BST, the Premier League clash will get underway during what could be the deciding moments at the Celtic Manor golf course, leaving fans to choose which of the two sporting contests to watch.
Head of the PGA Sandy Jones refused to criticise Sky’s decision to screen both major events.
“I don’t think our audience will be affected. Sky do a good job for all of us,” he was quoted by the Telegraph as saying.
Earlier this week, Sky revealed that the Ryder Cup will be one of the first events to be shown on its forthcoming 3D channel, which launches on October 1st.
