On May 22, Sky's new 3D channel will air eight hours of live 3D sport, starting at 2pm with the Championship playoff final between Blackpool and Cardiff City.

David Jones will present the coverage from Wembley Stadium, with Daniel Mann and Garry Birtles handling commentary for the 3D feed.

The game will be followed at 4.30pm by live coverage from France of the Heineken Cup Final between Biarritz and Toulouse, with commentary from Mark Robson and Ieuan Evans.

The broadcast day will culminate at 6pm with the UEFA Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Inter Milan from the Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid.

Richard Keys will present the programme with studio guests Ruud Gullit, Jamie Redknapp and Graeme Souness. Commentary for the 3D feed will come from Rob Palmer and Alan Smith.

Anyone wanting to watch the games in 3D can use an online pub finder on Sky's website to track down a participating venue in their area.
