Football: Swansea City v Hull City
7pm, Sky Sports 1
A battle between two Cities, though with one of those Cities soon to be Tigers, should Hull owner Assem Allam's rebranding move go ahead.

That event will work with the Malaria No More charity to help Africa fight the deadly disease, which kills thousands of the continent's inhabitants every day. To help promote the show, Comedy No More has released a promo video featuring Dane Cook, Kevin Nealon, »
