We’ve waved goodbye to Halloween, gloves are appearing on the pitch with increasing frequency, and nights are arriving with the sharpness of Sergio Aguero in the penalty area box.
It means Christmas is well on the way and we have got a whole host of festive treats live on BT Sport to help you spread the joy to your customers.
We will be serving up some cracking entertainment before the year is out – including the hugely anticipated Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fight – and there’s plenty of action on the football pitch too.
Here’s what’s coming up in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League as we approach the New Year.
Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea
Saturday November 24, 5.30pm
This is usually a feisty affair and with both teams in the hunt for those top four places – or even more – we wouldn’t expect anything else.
UEFA Champions League Matchday 5

Southampton v Manchester United
Saturday December 1, 5.30pm
With the Fury fight coming up in the early hours, the first day in December gives you plenty of opportunities to get those sports fans in. These sides both need the points. For entirely different reasons.

We have a couple of midweek treats for you in early December. Can anyone stop Manchester City’s serene progress? Watford fans will hope so.

Champions League Matchday 6
Tuesday December 11, Wednesday December 12, 8pm
This could be a vital midweek for the four Premier League clubs looking to progress to the knockout stages. Spurs may need something from a trip to Barcelona.

And on the Wednesday the Manchester clubs will be attempting to book their knockout places with City hosting Hoffenheim and United facing a tricky trip to Valencia.
Fulham v West Ham United

Three points from a London derby would be the perfect Christmas present for either of these sides.
