Following @SkyFootball will pull tweets featuring the content directly into users’ feeds, with those in the UK able to see action from early and late kick-off games and those in Ireland additionally shown clips from 3pm Saturday games, in line with Sky’s current Premier League licensing deals for broadcasting matches.

The videos, which will also include post-match analysis, will be sponsored and will feature brief ‘pre-roll’ adverts.
