Have we got a month in store for you! The tenth month of the year promises to be a bonanza of sensational live action on BT Sport as we bring you some gigantic events across the next 30 days.
October has just about everything for the sports fan - from the Champions League and Europa League (and the inaugural Europa Conference League) to Serie A and Ligue 1, to five (yes, five) rounds of rugby’s Gallagher Premiership and the heavyweight fight of the year between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder on BT Sport Box Office.
Read on for btsport.com’s summary of our unrivalled live schedule this month.
Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 on BT Sport Box Office
It's a heavyweight fight for the ages on BT Sport Box Office on Saturday 9 October as Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder's trilogy fight finally gets underway.
After the delay to July's planned showdown, the most fierce rivalry in boxing returns as Fury and Wilder settle things once and for all exclusively on BT Sport Box Office.
Fury, one of the biggest names in world boxing, is looking to follow up his win over Wilder in the rematch in February 2020 with another over the American to settle the score.
Wilder though, who secured a controversial draw with Fury in the first meeting, knows this is his last shot at defeating The Gypsy King and will look to his lethal right hand to strike the knockout blow.
“The only thing I’m bothered about is beating Deontay Wilder, and that’s the most dangerous heavyweight out there,” Fury said
“In my opinion, Wilder beats Joshua, Usyk, all the rest of the division, comfortable - but he cannot beat me.”
To get fight fans in the mood for one of the biggest fights of the year, we’ve also got a stacked card from Birmingham on Saturday 9 October headlined by a British and Commonwealth showdown between Brad Foster and Jason Cunningham.
The fight had been scheduled to take place last month, but Foster suffered an injury forcing a short postponement.
Fury vs Wilder 3 is available to purchase via the BT Sport Box Office page for £24.95 with full details available here.
BT Sport are showing four giant fixtures from the English top flight across the next month in a jam-packed schedule of action either side of the international break.
Man United are bidding to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday lunchtime when they play host to Rafa Benitez's Toffees.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left frustrated when Man United were punished for a below-par display against The Villains as Kourtney Hause scored a late winner.
Yet they were handed an even-later lifeline in the form of a penalty kick, only for Bruno Fernandes to sky his effort uncharacteristically into orbit.
All eyes at Old Trafford will be on the returned talisman Cristiano Ronaldo no doubt should Man United be awarded a spot-kick against Everton.
Jurgen Klopp's men are quietly setting the pace in the Premier League but will be wary of visiting a ground where they came unstuck on their previous visit - losing 3-0 in the same season they won the title.
The third offering comes from Stamford Bridge on October 23 where, another title chalenger, Chelsea will be heavy favourites at home to a Norwich team who are already fighting for surival in the top flight.
And fourth and finally, just as they did last season, BT Sport will broadcast Arsenal's Premier League trip to the King Power Stadium exclusively live.
The Gunners were revitalised after a recent win in the north London derby while The Foxes are enduring a decidedly poor start to the new season.
After the international break, BT Sport welcome back Europe's premier club competition as the Champions League gets back underway with Matchday 3 across on October 19 and 20.
A sensational Matchday 2 saw the two biggest stars in world football take centre stage as Lionel Messi got off the mark with his first Paris Saint-Germain goal in a win over his former manager Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and Cristiano Ronaldo netted a late, late winner for Manchester United against Villarreal.
The night of Tuesday 19 October sees Jurgen Klopp's Reds meet Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid - who dumped them out of the 2019/20 competition at the last 16 stage - while on the same evening Man City head to Belgium to face surprise packages Club Brugge.
Wednesday's action features two home ties for Chelsea and Man United - against Malmo and Atalanta respectively while under-fire Ronald Koeman looks to turn things around at Barcelona when they host Dynamo Kiev.
The Europa League - featuring Leicester, West Ham, Celtic and Rangers - and the first ever Europa Conference League - with Tottenham England's sole representative - also continue in October. All three competitions are live and exclusive only on BT Sport.
If that’s not enough, you can enjoy all the action with friends in a split screen view on the app on our Watch Together feature.
