SUMMER'S here, so drag the telly out on to the patio (if by some miracle you possess one) and fill a bucket with plenty of ice and beers for loads of televised sport is on the cards.

And at long last we've finally come to the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup as Arsenal take on Parma.

The game comes live from Copenhagen where plenty of Carlsbergs will be consumed as the almost impenetrable defence of the British side will be put to the test by the agile Italians.

And it can be seen live, live, live on Jade this Wednesday at 2am.

Finally we're getting some live action on a station virtually everybody has access to, so be sure to make the most of it, despite the early hour and the fact that it's broadcast in Cantonese.

Don your helmets for the 500 cc world championship circus which heads to Jerez this Sunday for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Suzuki rider Kevin Schwantz brought the Japanese bikes back into the limelight last week with his convincing win in Japan. Could this be the end of the Cagivas' glory? Jerez's short straights and tight hairpins are definitely Suzuki territory with their unbridled handling skills, but don't be surprised to see Mick Doohan's Honda up in the top points also.

Prime Sport will be running the race live this Sunday at 5.50pm and if any of you don't have access then you can nip on down to L.A. Cafe's Sports Bar and catch it on the big screen.

Rev, rev! On to tours of a different kind, the US PGA Tour heads to Atlanta for the Bellsouth Classic. More than US$1 million is up for grabs in the event that will see reigning champ Nolan Henke put up his dukes against some of the world's best.

Prime have nabbed a hole in one by bringing days two and three of the event to us live this Saturday and Sunday at 4am.

Australian footy (we mean both kinds, Aussie Rules and rugby league) is picking up quite a following here in Hong Kong thanks to coverage from Australian TV. And you can catch top games of the week from both sports this Saturday on Australian TV from 12 noon.
