Sky Sports will begin their coverage of the 2018 GAA Championships by broadcasting All-Ireland champions Galway against Wexford in the revamped Leinster hurling championship on June 2.

Both the hurling and football championships have been revamped this year with the Munster and Leinster hurling championships now involving a round robin format.

The football championship sees the introduction of the Super 8s series with the last eight remaining in the race for Sam Maguire being drawn into two groups with the top two in each group advancing to the last four.

Sky will show 20 games with 14 exclusively shown on the subscription service.

Both RTE and Sky will show the All-Ireland semi-finals and finals in both codes simultaneously.

RTE announced the 31 games they will feature last week.
