Premier League shareholders have approved a proposal where ALL remaining games will be broadcast live on television.

The 92 matches will be shared by the current broadcast partners of the competition: Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport and Amazon Prime.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said in an official statement: “Today we have provisionally agreed to resume the Premier League on Wednesday 17 June.

“But this date cannot be confirmed until we have met all the safety requirements needed, as the health and welfare of all participants and supporters is our priority.

“Sadly, matches will have to take place without fans in stadiums, so we are pleased to have come up with a positive solution for supporters to be able to watch all the remaining 92 matches.

Coming soon: Premier League action

“The Premier League and our clubs are proud to have incredibly passionate and loyal supporters. It is important to ensure as many people as possible can watch the matches at home.

“We will continue to work step-by-step and in consultation with all our stakeholders as we move towards resuming the 2019/20 season.”

It was also confirmed that each respective week day’s fixtures will be played at the following times:

Friday – 20:00
Saturday – 12:30, 15:00, 17:30 and 20:00
Sunday – 12:00, 14:00, 16:30 and 19:00
Monday – 20:00

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – 18:00 and 20:00


Exciting for football fans

The BBC have also confirmed that they will broadcast four of the fixtures live in a historic move that will expand their Premier League footage from flagship programme Match of the Day.

It’s an exciting move for football fans who don’t play subscriptions for Sky, BT and Amazon, though it remains to be seen which games will be available for free on their channel.

And a further 25 Sky fixtures, according to Martin Ziegler of The Times, will be free to air on Freeview.

That means almost one third of the remaining Premier League games will be available to absolutely everybody – and it’s exactly what people need in these difficult and uncertain times.
