February on BT Sport: Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, boxing and UFC feature in an unmissable month
BT Sport will show the return of the Champions League and Europa League, 21 Premier League matches, the FA Cup fifth round, UFC 258 and world championship boxing this month.
Lockdown continues across the UK, but at BT Sport we’ve got a plan to help you escape this February.
Here are the events that you simply can’t afford to miss.
Champions League and Europa League
The Champions League and Europa League return in February and, as usual, we’ve got every game from both competitions exclusively live as we enter the knockout stages.
That means eight live Champions League matches and a mammoth 32 from the Europa League this month alone.
There are three English representatives in the last 16 of Europe’s premier competition, with the first-leg matches between RB Leipzig and Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea and Borussia Monchengladbach versus Manchester City all set to place in the third week of February.
In an added bonus, the return legs will be played the following week which means if you purchase a monthly pass at the beginning of the month, you can watch the Europa League last 32 in its entirety.

BT Sport customers can enjoy a packed schedule of Premier League action in February, including every game from Matchday 22 exclusively live.
Beginning on Tuesday 2 February and concluding on Thursday 4 February, we have all 10 matches - culminating with the huge London derby between Tottenham and Chelsea.
If that’s not enough, we’ve got 11 more top-flight matches to see you through to the end of the month.
Don’t forget, BT Sport Score will keep you across all the live scores as they come in every Saturday and Jake Humphrey and company will discuss all the big talking points on Premier League Tonight.

Five of the eight FA Cup fifth-round fixtures will be shown live on BT Sport from Tuesday 9 February to Thursday 11 February, including Everton v Tottenham and Swansea v Man City.
An unmissable few days of action from the world’s oldest club competition kicks off at Turf Moor where Burnley host Championship Bournemouth.
The next day we have a huge triple-header starting with Championship high-flyers Swansea welcoming six-time FA Cup winners Man City to the Liberty Stadium.
Later that evening we have an all-Premier League clash between Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester and Brighton at the King Power Stadium, before 1995 winners Everton host Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.
The fifth round concludes with action from the Midlands as Nuno Espirito Santo’s underperforming Wolves look to put their miserable Premier League form behind them when Southampton visit Molineux.

Boxing returns to BT Sport in February with a huge world title clash, as Carl Frampton bids to become a three-weight world champion when he takes on the WBO world super featherweight champion Jamel Herring on Saturday 27 February.
The fight, which will be staged in London, was originally scheduled to take place in the middle of 2020 before being delayed because of Covid-19.
Frampton stopped Darren Traynor in an interim fight in August, while Herring overcame Jonathan Oquendo in Las Vegas.
The Jackal said: “I’m delighted to finally get a date nailed down for this fight that has now been talked about for over a year.
“I have the upmost respect for Jamel as a fighter and as a man but there is nobody stopping me on becoming the island of Ireland’s only ever three-weight world champion, one of Britain’s only ever three-weight world champions and potentially have one foot in the hall of fame.”
Promoter Frank Warren said: “I am thrilled we are able to deliver this huge opportunity for Carl to reinforce his position as the top Irish fighter of his or any other generation.”
