There's some excellent classic sport coming to RTÉ soon

What else would you be doing but reliving some of the country's best sporting moments?

It's going to be a while before we get to experience any live sport again, but this is probably the next best thing.

Following on from a classic movie schedule announced recently, RTÉ has revealed plans to broadcast some classic sporting occasions and some of what's in store is absolutely brilliant.

Starting on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player at 9.30pm on Thursday 16 April, RTÉ Sport Classics will run every Thursday for 10 weeks.

For the as-live experience, viewers will be able to follow the games online with live blogs on the RTÉ website and RTÉ News Now app and, over on RTÉ 2FM, Game On will feature interviews with the main protagonists to whet appetites.

In soccer, over the past two Sundays, RTÉ has shown every goal from the 2014 and 2018 World Cups and will continue this Sunday 19 April (RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player, 4.05pm) to bring more goals and stories from the men’s and women’s World Cups, the highlights of the Republic of Ireland’s last EURO experience in 2016 and a look back at our journey to date in the 2020 campaign.

RTÉ will also be showing some classic Champions League games, to satisfy your cravings.

GAA fans are in for a treat as the RTÉ Player will showcase the 'All-Ireland finals series'. From this Friday, 17 April, viewers will get to relive their excitement around every single All-Ireland football, hurling and camogie final shown on RTÉ over the past decade.

RTÉ2 will be bringing back the Sunday Game in the coming weeks, with the best of the GAA archive across all men's and women's matches.

In June/July, it's Euro 88 and Italia '90 all over again, as viewers get to relive the great days of our World Cup and European Championship experiences, with themed Sunday evenings across RTÉ Sport. More details on this will be announced closer to the time.

We'll definitely take it.
