The first live action on ESPN this week arrives on the afternoon of Saturday 26 February, with a pair of EFL Championship matches: Blackburn Rovers v Queens Park Rangers and Bournemouth v Stoke City (14:25 and 16:55 respectively LIVE on ESPN).  

Stoke manager Michael O'Neill has spoken of how he is trying to get the club to excel both on and off the field: "The key to any successful club is high standards and that’s not just 90 minutes on a Saturday," said the Potters boss. "High standards is a cultural thing within your organisation that has to be driven not only by staff but by players, by the environment you create. That’s what we’re trying to do here."  

Saturday evening then features the Philadelphia Flyers v Washington Capitals in NHL (19:30 LIVE on ESPN), while the ice hockey action continues early on the morning of Sunday 27 February with the Nashville Predators v Tampa Bay Lightning (02:30 LIVE on ESPN).  

Sunday afternoon features a trio of Eredivisie clashes, with AZ Alkmaar v Feyenoord, Sparta Rotterdam v PSV and Go Ahead Eagles v Ajax (13:05, 15:20 and 17:35 respectively LIVE on ESPN), while the evening of Monday 28 February will see West Bromwich Albion tackle Swansea City in the EFL Championship (21:55 LIVE on ESPN).  

Fans of Basketball and American Football will get their share of news and views from the respective sport each night from Tuesday 1 to Thursday 3 March with live airings of 'NBA Today' and 'NFL Live' at 22:00 and 23:00 respectively, LIVE on ESPN.

The first live action on ESPN 2 this week arrives on the morning of Friday 25 February, with a trio of NCAA Basketball games: Memphis v Temple, San Francisco v Gonzaga and Oregon State v USC (02:00, 04:00 and 06:00 respectively LIVE on ESPN 2).  

The NCAA Basketball action continues on the morning of Sunday 27 February with Syracuse v Duke (01:00 LIVE on ESPN 2) and Basylor v Kansas (03:00 LIVE on ESPN 2), while the early afternoon of the same day sees a switch of focus to the Scottish Premiership, with Celtic visiting Edinburgh to face Hibernian (13:55 LIVE on ESPN 2).  

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has implored his team to keep on playing for the supporters: "We’re upholding the values of this football club, not just in terms of winning but the way we play our football. I want them [supporters] to be proud of us," said the Greek-Australian tactician.  

Sunday evening sees the NHL take centre stage, with the Carolina Hurricanes v Edmonton Oilers (20:00 LIVE on ESPN 2), while the morning of Tuesday 1 March sees more NCAA Basketball action, with North Carolina v Syracuse and Texas v Baylor (02:00 and 04:00 respectively LIVE on ESPN 2).  

One of the major pieces of news from the NHL in recent weeks has been the Anaheim Ducks hiring Pat Verbeen as their new general manager. "I look forward to building this team into a Stanley Cup winner," Verbeek said. "[A typical rebuild] takes five years. I'm hoping to shorten that, but that's kind of the reality of how long it really takes you to be a consistent, serious contender."  
And while you’re on the move, you can stream the action on the DStv App.
