The big Premier League restart commences from Wednesday 17th June, 2002 following months of waiting and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
With 92 fixtures left to be played in the 2019/20 Premier league campaign, there’s still plenty of football left to be decided.
Would-be champions Liverpool are hoping to wrap up the title with two more wins, several clubs are tussling for European football places next season and a number of bottom half clubs are fighting for top flight survival.
In an unprecedented move, the Premier League and the broadcasters have agreed to broadcast a large number of those matches live on free-to-air television.
The atmosphere in the grounds will be eerie to say the least, with all remaining fixtures being played behind closed doors.
With fans unable be able to attend the matches live, it seems the only other options is to televise all the matches to allow the fans to see this hugely delayed season get finally completed.
What Channels Are Showing the Live Games?
Sky Sports Sports, BT Sport, BBC and Amazon Prime are the four broadcasters sharing the spoils.
Sky Sports has the lion’s share of matches with 64 in total.
Of those games, 25 will be made free-to-air on the Freeview ‘Pick’ channel and online via Now TV.
BT Sport will be airing 20 live matches.
However, a BT Sport subscription is needed to watch any of their games live.
Both Amazon and the BBC will be airing 4 of the remaining games each.
Amazingly, this will be the first time ever the BBC has showed live Premier League football.
What Time Do the Matches Kick Off?
With 92 fixtures to be squeezed into just 40 days, the fixture dates and times look very unusual.
Matches will be played at the following set times in the coming weeks:
- Monday: 8pm
- Tuesday: 6pm, 8pm/8.15pm
- Wednesday: 6pm, 8pm/8.15pm
- Thursday: 6pm, 8pm/8.15pm
- Friday: 6pm, 8pm
- Saturday: 12:30pm, 3pm, 5:30pm, 7.45pm
- Sunday: 12pm, 2pm, 4:15pm, 4:30pm, 7pm
