Premier League final day

It all comes down to this! 

The curtain closes on the most intense domestic season in recent memory, with a jam-packed schedule of Premier League football to tuck into this weekend.

As is tradition, all ten games will kick off at the same time on Sunday at 4pm and we've got three crackers to sink your teeth into across the BT Sport network.

On BT Sport 1 HD and Ultimate, we'll bring you coverage from Molineux as Wolves welcome Manchester United to the Midlands.

It's been a tough season for Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves, who find themselves in unfamiliar territory at the end of a Premier League campaign occupying the bottom half of the table.

Performances have not been up to scratch for a long while and, although injuries have not been kind to them, Santo will know that is no excuse to surrender points in the manner they have done of late.

A win against United would be an important statement heading into a vital summer in the transfer market - but it won't come easy against a team keen to rediscover some momentum ahead of the Europa League final.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's boys are winless in three league games after the midweek 1-1 draw against relegated Fulham, but the form of veteran marksman Edinson Cavani has been a highlight in recent weeks.

The Uruguayan scored his 17th of the season in all competitions, with a spectacular lob from distance, on Wednesday night and will be relishing the prospect of facing a Wolves side struggling defensively this year.

Alternatively you can watch Leeds United welcome relegated West Brom in what promises to be a carnival atmosphere at Elland Road.

It'll be the first time fans have been permitted back at their iconic home since the team rejoined the Premier League and Marcelo Bielsa's side should expect nothing less than a hero's welcome when they grace the pitch.

One of the league's most entertaining teams, Leeds secured a top-half finish with their win over Southampton last time out and could even leapfrog Arsenal if results go their way this weekend.

West Brom, meanwhile, wave goodbye to both the Premier League and manager Sam Allardyce with the former England boss confirming his decision to step down at the end of the current campaign.

Can the Baggies send Big Sam away with a smile?

Our third option, sees Sheffield United bow out of the Premier League as they take on Burnley.

It's not been the year that many Blades fans envisaged but with fans back at Bramall Lane for this one, the home faithful will be keen to give their side a raucous reception as they look to enter the summer with a priceless win.

Burnley, meanwhile, could move as high as 15th in the table with a victory of their own and Sean Dyche will no doubt be hoping to sign off another solid season with three points.

Challenge Cup & Heineken Champions Cup finals

Continental glory is on the line this weekend as BT Sport bring you the finals of the Heineken Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup.

First up, on Friday night, is the Challenge Cup showpiece that will be played in front of a crowd at Twickenham and there is English interest in the form of Leicester Tigers, who take on Montpellier.

Leicester, who sit sixth in the Gallagher Premiership table, saw off Connacht, Newcastle Falcons and Ulster in the knockout rounds to tee up a final against 2016  winners Montpellier.

Steve Borthwick's men enter the clash as favourites against Les Cistes, who sit 10th in their domestic Top 14 table but overcame much-fancied Bath in the semi-finals. 

Our coverage from the home of rugby gets underway at 7pm, with kick off an hour later, on BT Sport 1 HD and Ultimate. 

Finals Month on BT Sport

With nine finals in 15 days, from football and rugby's top competitions, read our guide for the games you can't afford to miss.

Then on Saturday afternoon, the very best in European rugby meet at Twickenham as Top 14 giants La Rochelle and Toulouse clash for Heineken Champions Cup glory.

Toulouse are no strangers to the big stage having won the competition on no fewer than four occasions - the joint-most of any side - yet the French titans have not lifted the trophy in 11 years.

The Reds and Black came out on top in both domestic meetings this campaign and saw off Munster, Clermont and Bordeaux Begles in the knockout rounds to earn their spot in the final.

La Rochelle meanwhile are playing in a maiden Champions Cup final but did overcome stern competition in Gloucester, Sale and Leinster to set up the all-French clash.

Guided by Champions Cup great Ronan O'Gara, they are looking to make history live on BT Sport.

FA Vase & FA Trophy finals

Saturday is non-league finals day as teams outside the top four tiers do battle at the home of English football for a shot of glory.

First up is the FA Vase final at midday, as Hellenic Premier Division side Binfield take on Warrington Rylands of the North West Counties League Premier Division.

Bob Bacon's Binfield, based in Berkshire, have enjoyed drama-packed journey with no fewer than four penalty shootout wins en route to the showpiece clash.

Rylands meanwhile have got to Wembley for the biggest game in their history the hard way. The Blues' run started way back in September with the First Qualifying Round meaning they've played 10 ties already this campaign.

Once the FA Vase has been lifted, it's on to the FA Trophy at 3.45pm where AFC Hornchurch meet Hereford FC. 

Isthmian League Premier Divisoin side AFC Hornchurch, taking part in the FA Trophy final for the first time, edged out non-league big boys Notts County in the semi-finals via a penalty shootout.

The Urchins entered the FA Trophy at the Third Qualifying Round whereas opponents Hereford FC, as a National League North outfit, started in the Second Round Proper.

The Bulls, who were reborn as a phoenix club from the ashes of Hereford United in 2014, enter as favourites under manager Josh Gowling as they get set for a first outing at Wembley.

UFC Fight Night - Font v Garbrandt

Saturday night's UFC action promises to be a cracker as Cody Garbrandt returns to the octagon for the first time since June against in-form Rob Font.

Garbrandt is back after finally conquering the long Covid that kept him out of action following his brutal dismantling of Raphael Assuncao that earned him Performance of the Night honours.

The former bantamweight champion, who won the title off Dominick Cruz before back-to-back losses to then-champion TJ Dillashaw, had lost three on the bounce before his epic performance against Assuncao.

Here's why you can't miss this event!

But 'No Love' will have his hands full on Saturday night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, when he takes on a fighter in the form of his life.

Fellow American Font saw off a former title contender in Marlon Moraes in December in another Performance of the Night and holds an 18-4 record under the UFC promotion.

With Garbrandt bidding to get back to his former glory and Font searching for his career apex, whoever wins this one will surely earn a shot at bantamweight gold - currently held by Aljamain Sterling.

The action gets underway at 10pm on Saturday night live on BT Sport 1 HD, but don't forget, you can also watch the card in full on the BT Sport app on Sunday morning completely spoiler free.

Ligue 1 & Bundesliga final days

BT Sport have fans of European football covered as always, as we bring you the dramatic conclusion to the Bundesliga and Ligue 1.

In Germany the champions and top four spots have all been allocated, but there remains a huge battle at the bottom of the Bundesliga with two points separating 15th and 17th so we have three huge clashes from the basement.

With all nine games kicking off at the traditional time of Saturday 2.30pm, we bring you Werder Bremen against Borussia Monchengladbach, Stuttgart's clash with Arminia Bielefield and Cologne's trip to Schalke.

On 32 points, Werder currently occupy the relegation playoff position yet a poor result against eighth-placed Gladbach opens the door to 17th-place Cologne - who trail Bremen by a point and are taking on already-relegated Schalke.

Meanwhile, sitting in 15th on 32 points, Arminia are far from secure as they prepare for a nervy encounter against Stuttgart from the Mercedes-Benz Arena bidding to extend their stay in the top flight to a second season.

There's also action from the 2. Bundesliga on Sunday, where VFL Bochum can clinch promotion to the top flight against SV Sandhausen. But Bochum must be wary of Holstein Kiel and Greuther Furth who trail by two and three points respectively and could both leapfrog them and condemn them to the playoff place.

For broadcast details of those four matches, check out our What's On page.

Then on Sunday night we bring you the climax to the most exciting Ligue 1 final day in years as Lille bid to end Paris Saint-Germain's run of three straight titles.

BT Sport will show four matches from across the Channel as the French title race goes right down to the wire with Angers v Lille, Brest v PSG, Lyon v Nice and Lens v Monaco all available exclusively live on our platforms.

Lille, leading Mauricio Pochettino's side by one point, only need to match PSG's result to be crowned champions. A draw at Angers though opens the door to the Parisiens who boast a superior goal difference and could snatch the title in dramatic circumstances.

Monaco and Lyon meanwhile can overtake PSG - with Monaco not mathematically out of the title race - if results go their way in what promises to be a thrilling night of French football.

Check out our What's On page for details of how to watch all four matches on Sunday evening, straight after our Premier League coverage finishes.

And much, much more...

And if that's not enough we have plenty, and we mean plenty, of other action to enjoy this weekend on BT Sport. 

For football fans, there's a huge clash in the National League where Sutton United can all-but clinch promotion to League Two with a win over fourth-placed Hartlepool.

And down under we've got a big A-League clash between Western United and Wellington Phoenix while fans of Australian sports will be satiated by five Aussie Rules matches from the Australian Football League across the weekend.

Plus there's French Women Division One football, action from the FIH Pro Hockey League and an incredible seven Major League Baseball games from Friday until Sunday.
