Boxing Day football is a British institution. If you’re not throwing your best gear on and heading to the ground, you’ll almost certainly be in the local or sat in front of the TV keeping up with the scores. There’s nothing quite like it is there? A solid fixture list, a few derbies thrown in and you’re away. So who’s playing and where can you catch them this year?

For those planning on watching the football at home or in your nearest watering hole there will be four boxing day games televised on Sky Sports and Now TV, three from the Premiership and one Championship game.
