Arsenal’s first three Premier League games will be broadcast on TV in the UK and Ireland, and as such kick-off times/dates have changed.
Our season opener against Fulham on September 12th will now kick off at 12 noon, and will be live on BT Sport where the chances of Steve McManaman communicating directly with your dog via his incessant ear-piercing whining are said to be extremely high.
The following weekend we play West Ham at home, kicking off at 2pm on Sky Sports who will have fired every presenter and pundit apart from Paul Merson by then.
And we get our first Monday night football of the new season on September 28th when we travel to Anfield to take on champions Liverpool, again on Sky Sports.
There was also good news this week with a report in The Times outlining plans for all Premier League games to be broadcast for as long as fans are excluded from stadiums because of Covid.
They’re also talking about doing away with the 3pm Saturday rule, so those of us in this part of the world can watch our teams.
