We are delighted to announce that two more Vanarama National League matches have been selected for live coverage.

The title race and battle to avoid the drop out of the division falls sharply into BT Sport’s focus in the New Year.

First of all it’s a game that always carries a little extra needle.
But with both Chesterfield and Notts County embedded in the chase for the EFL, this one has even more spice.

The grudge match has thrown up some classics over the years and the game on Saturday January 21 at the Technique Stadium could be another, it kicks-off at 5.20pm.

Then there’s a midweek offering as Scunthorpe United head to FC Halifax Town looking to get their season going.

The Iron have struggled since relegation from League Two and with National League North football a real threat they’ll be looking to move up the table – and drag the Shaymen into trouble. The game starts at 7.30pm.

BT Sport’s 2023 begins at Maidstone United on January 2 when Dagenham & Redbridge visit.

This weekend it’s an early start as York City look to give their season the kiss of life when title challengers Wrexham visit.

Later in December it’s a BT Sport first with regular season National League North and South football covered live for the first time by a broadcaster.

Kidderminster host Chester on December 7 before Braintree Town play Dulwich Hamlet on Sunday on December 11.

On the same day Oldham Athletic host Torquay United before the year draws to a close for the cameras at Barnet on Boxing Day with Boreham Wood the visitors.

Upcoming live matches:

Saturday December 3 York City vs Wrexham (12.30pm)
Wednesday December 7 Kidderminster vs Chester (7.30pm)
Sunday December 11 Braintree Town vs Dulwich Hamlet (12.30pm) Sunday December 11 Oldham Athletic vs Torquay United (3pm) Monday December 26 Barnet vs Boreham Wood (3pm)
Monday January 2 Maidstone United vs Dagenham & Redbridge (3pm) Saturday January 21 Chesterfield vs Notts County (5.20pm)
Wednesday January 25 FC Halifax Town vs Scunthorpe United (7.30pm)
