Optus Sport are set to deliver 133 live matches in March, including Potential Title Deciders, Aussies in Action, and the Final Three Teams to Qualify for UEFA Euro 2024™ 

Title showdowns and local derbies in the Premier League, Aussies in action in the WSL and the J.League, UEFA EURO 2024™ play-offs and some of the biggest international teams in the world facing off. March really does have it all on Optus Sport. 

Some key highlights:  

It’s a big month for three-time reigning champions Manchester City in the Premier League title race, kicking off with a fierce Manchester derby against their old rivals.

Manchester United head to the Etihad Stadium on Monday, March 4, knowing that they can get their season back on track, and potentially ruin their noisy neighbours’ hunt for an unprecedented fourth consecutive title. 

The following week we get the final Premier League showdown in the long-running rivalry of Pep Guardiola’s City and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, with the latter leaving the club at the end of the season. Victory for either team on Monday, March 11, could go a long way to deciding where the Premier League trophy calls home come May. 

That game against the champions at Anfield is the first of two massive games for Liverpool in March, the second of which being a Merseyside derby away to Everton on March 18. 

In March we’re also treated to a London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea at the Australia-friendly kick-off time of 11.30pm (AEDT) on Saturday, March 16, with the Blues looking to scupper the Gunners’ hopes of a first title in 20 years. 

Over in LALIGA, it’s a big month for Barcelona, as they travel to both Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid with manager Xavi Hernandez aiming to muscle in on Real Madrid and Girona’s title battle in what will be his last season in charge of the club. 

In the WSL, it’s derbies galore, with two London derbies, a Manchester derby and a Merseyside derby all live on Optus Sport.

Arsenal face Tottenham on Sunday, March 3, at 11.30pm (AEDT) before heading to Chelsea on Saturday, March 16, at 6am (AEDT). 

Then we have Manchester City vs Manchester United on Saturday, March 23, at 11.30pm (AEDT) before Everton host Liverpool 24 hours later. 

March will also reveal the identities of the final three teams heading to Germany in June for UEFA EURO 2024™ as the playoffs get underway on Friday, March 22, at 6.45am (AEDT). 

The likes of Wales, Greece, Poland and Ukraine will all be in action across six semi-finals before the three play-off finals take place the following week on Wednesday, March 27 at 6.45am (AEDT). 

The UEFA EURO 2024™ play-offs are part of 24 international matches live on Optus Sport across six days in March, with a plethora of mouthwatering friendlies also being broadcast. 

England have a double-header against Brazil and Belgium, while Germany face European heavyweights Netherlands and France, and Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to continue his record-breaking scoring for Portugal against Sweden. 

Months don’t get much bigger than this on Optus Sport, you wouldn’t want to miss it.

Howard Rees, Head of Optus Sport, said

“There are big months of football and then there are what’s coming in March on Optus Sport! 

“Saying this month of football is one of the biggest in recent memory would be an understatement – we have eye-catching Premier League clashes that could go a long way to deciding where the premiership trophy will be heading this season, WSL title rivals also going head-to-head, plus we’ll know who the final three teams to qualify for UEFA EURO 2024™ will be.”

“And then there are also LALIGA clashes and Harry Kewell’s Yokohama F. Marinos in the J.League, too.:

“Whether it’s watching live or keeping up through mini matches, you can see it all on Optus Sport.”
