Virgin Media is delighted to announce ESPN's Open Weekend (4-6 March), an opportunity for ESPN non-subscribers to watch a weekend of great sporting action free of charge.

Over three days, there's a bumper package of live sport featuring Barclays Premier League and Serie A football, Aviva Premiership rugby, a selection of top NBA games and much more, giving you a taster of all the exclusive events you can enjoy on ESPN. Tune in to ESPN (Channel 529), ESPN HD (530) and ESPN America (531) from Friday 4 March for:

Live Barclays Premier League Football

On Saturday 5 March, the City of Manchester Stadium plays host to Wigan Athletic, as Manchester City continue their quest for a Champions League place and perhaps the chance to topple neighbours Manchester United.

Serie A Football

See Sampdoria play Cesena live on Sunday morning, and tune in the evening before to catch giants Juventus challenge league leaders AC Milan.

Aviva Premiership Rugby

Saturday lunchtime features live derby action as Gloucester welcome Bath, then there's more live rugby on Sunday as Northampton Saints visit Exeter.

Live NBA

Dramatic basketball clashes as Toronto Raptors take on New Jersey Nets on Friday evening, with San Antonio Spurs facing Miami Heat later that night.

And that's just a sample of the range of outstanding sports programming offered by ESPN. The following week, ESPN subscribers old and new can enjoy two exclusive FA Cup Quarter Finals, plus Scottish Premier League and Europa League games – alongside the usual array of great action from the past on ESPN Classic.

Shame it doesn't start a few hours earlier for live UFC.

They keep ringing me up with offers, they will end up like Setanta!

How does this offer work if you've only got freeview?

If I read it right it doesn't :@ Rubbish, and still no Nascar, baseball hasn't started, possible March madness college basketball.
There's really not much on which is why they must be doing it, hardly a banner weekend

is there any Lacrosse on on the 4th?

coll cheers op

It is a very poor channel but ESPN is owned bi Disney i believe who could easily outbid sky on sports events. The reason why it's rubbish at the moment is because Sky have secured most sport rights. I think it's going to be very interesting between sky and ESPN in a few years time when the bidding starts again for the football ect.
Btw nice oneop voted hot.

I will benefit from this offer!
