The first live action on ESPN arrives on the evening of Friday 10 February and sees Birmingham City host West Bromwich Albion at St. Andrews for a regional derby in the EFL Championship (22:00 LIVE on ESPN).

Baggies manager Carlos Corberan recently praised the impact that American striker Daryl Dike has made since a return from a long spell on the sidelines: “He had a long-term injury but he’s a very important player for us,” the West Brom boss said of Dike.

“The fitter he is, the better it is for the team. The more he trains, the better condition he’s in to perform. So there isn’t any doubt that he’s one very important player for us that we need to keep controlling, because he’s one player that we need in the box.”

The Championship action continues on the afternoon of Saturday 11 February with Queens Park Rangers taking on Millwall in a London derby (17:00 LIVE on ESPN), before a switch of focus to the Eredivisie for a clash between PSV and Groningen at the Philips Stadium in Eindhoven (21:00 LIVE on ESPN).

Sunday 12 February features further thrills and spills from the Dutch top flight, as Heerenveen welcome Feyenoord (15:30 LIVE on ESPN) and champions Ajax host RKC Waalwijk at the Amsterdam ArenA (17:15 LIVE on ESPN).

Every weekday evening from Monday 13 to Thursday 16 February brings fans of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Football League (NFL) all the news and views they can handle from ‘NBA Today’ (22:00 LIVE on ESPN) and ‘NFL Live’ (23:00 LIVE on ESPN).

The first live action on ESPN 2 arrives on the evening of Friday 10 February and comes from the Belgian Pro League, as Club Brugge welcome Union Saint-Gilloise to the Jan Breydel Stadium (21:45 LIVE on ESPN 2). Further Belgian matches will be shown on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 February, with Charleroi v RFC Seraing (19:15 LIVE on ESPN 2) and Gentv Antwerp (14:30 LIVE on ESPN 2) respectively.

The focus on ESPN 2 then turns to one of the biggest annual sporting events in the world: the NFL’s Super Bowl, which will be held at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix, Arizona on the morning of Monday 13 February (01:30 LIVE on ESPN 2).

Super Bowl LVII (57) will see the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles. Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts has reflected on his journey with the franchise as they look to claim the biggest prize on offer in American Football.

“My first year here [people] probably didn’t even want [me drafted] here. It was probably one of those things. But it always handles itself,” he said following Philadelphia’s 31-7 win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC title game in late January.

“It was a big surprise to many. My favorite [Bible] verse, I went through a lot of stuff in college and it kind of stuck with me, John 13:7: ‘You may not know now but later you’ll understand.’ Hopefully people understand.”
