Is this the same for the football channels on Virgin tv go?
No it only applies to Sky Sports racing, although you do need to use the Sky Sports App to view the Sky Sports channels. They should be listed in the TV Go app with a breakout to the Sky Sports app when you view them - provided of course that you subscribe to the sports channels.
