BBC Alba to screen live SFL games


BBC Alba will screen live television coverage of three Scottish First Division matches this season.

The matches will have Sunday afternoon kick-offs, and an announcement regarding the end-of-season play-off matches is expected later.

SFL chief executive David Longmuir said: "I'm delighted that the channel recognises the excitement, passion and community values of the SFL.

"I look forward to developing this relationship in the months ahead."

The new channel already screens delayed coverage from the SPL and had live coverage of November's ALBA Challenge Cup final between Airdrie United and Ross County.

Sunday 22 February, 1515 GMT

Airdrie United v Clyde

Sunday 22 March, 1515 GMT
