Long-running Sky Sports show Sunday Supplement set to be cancelled

Sky Sports will cancel their Sunday Supplement show ahead of next season according to a report from the Telegraph.

Sunday Supplement takes place on Sunday mornings and has been on air since 1999.

Its format consists of a round-table discussion between the presenter and three newspaper journalists

The Telegraph outline that the show’s cancellation comes as a result of more games being packed into a shorter timeframe next season.

The show was presented by Jacqui Oatley before March’s suspension of the season.

Oatley was the show’s first female presenter after she took over from Neil Ashton.

Sky Sports has not ruled out the show returning at some point in the future, although that isn’t guaranteed.

A spokesperson for the channel told The Telegraph;

“The huge volume of live football since the restart and a condensed season that has already begun means we must look at how best to deploy our resources for the benefit of our customers.”

Sky Sports will also show more live games from the SPFL meaning time is limited in their schedule.

The Scottish Premiership returned for a new season last weekend.

The previous campaign was cancelled due to the global pandemic.
