Premier League confirm remaining 92 games will be televised

14

The Premier League has confirmed that a deal has been reached to broadcast all of the remaining 92 games of the 2019/20 season with Arsenal set to kick-off the return to action against Manchester City on 17 June. 

In addition to coverage being shown by regular broadcast partners Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon, some of the behind-closed-doors matches will also be available for free on the BBC.

Midweek games will be played at 6pm and 8pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with weekend fixtures stretching across 10 kick-off slots from Friday through until Monday. Eye tests and trips to Durham will have to be done on Thursday by the look of things.

While the Premier League say they expect things to resume on 17 June, clubs still need to meet all the necessary safety requirements and therefore it remains a provisional date.

In his latest statement, Richard Masters explained: “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.

“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.”

Excellent news!

Bet we still get all the stupid days and times.

AmI right in saying, if we beat City, Liverpool will be champions without kicking another ball.

Arvind

No, they still need three more points. (six as of now, since city has that game in hand). so we win and they win their first match, they’d be champions

Rocky07

Thanks for clearing that one up Arvind.

Ringoxiii

But if Man City play before Liverpool at the weekend and lose then Liverpool will win the league before kicking a ball

Thank god, let’s get that champs league spot, I feel our youngsters might come up trumps in this. Young, fit, fearless and ot that long ago they were playing too small crowds.
The only disappointment is that the BBC have managed to worm their way in, but as long as everyone gets to watch games safe at home, that’s something. Assume sky will resume taking a subscription fee now? I see BT sport didn’t show the bundesliga games for free to be kind. At least not ones I checked, so I could be wrong.

Let’s go gooners!

Making the people’s game available to all the… people? Yes, I can see why you’re furious.

I must be one of the few who’s not looking forward to the resumption of the premier league. Empty grounds, fake crowd noises on tv are going to be the new norm in our dystopian future. I’m just glad I’ve had the pleasure of watching football at Highbury, Emirates and my local team. The thought of fans never returning to watch their team feels me with horror. But this is the reality. So, best of luck Arsenal but football and fans are being socially distanced and that’s something I can’t accept. Also, don’t forget those lower league clubs who, without… Read more »

I know where you’re coming from, but we already made a deal with the devil a long time and when you take those huge lumps of cash from the broadcasters and pay those huge wages to then compete this current scenario leaves you with the choices of:
a) play the games in empty stadiums
b) see the club face liquidation through financial ruin

Having made the first choice, there now really is no choice left, but I get it if this is the final straw for you…

You are not alone. It is a grotesque parody of the history we’ve all grown up with. Bit like having to wipe your arse with your left hand – uncomfortable and weird, but I guess we’ll get used to it.
