The Premier League season is set to restart on Wednesday 17 June with Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal.

(*subject to government approval.)

The matches are the two games in hand.

A full fixture list would then be played on the weekend of 19-21 June.

All 92 of the remaining games will be played behind closed doors.

Premier League Shareholders also approved a proposal that would see all 92 remaining matches broadcast live in the UK by the League’s existing broadcast partners: Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport and Amazon Prime.

So for the first time ever, live Premier League will be shown on the BBC (4 matches). The last time the BBC showed a live top flight league game was  Tottenham v Arsenal on Sun 6th March 1988.

 

Sky Sports will also be showing 25 of its 64 exclusive matches free to air, including Everton vs Liverpool on their free to air Pick channel, which is available free on Sky and Freesat.

BT Sport will show a total of 20 live matches and Amazon Prime will show four

Amazon and BT Sports are yet, at the time of writing, to announce their plans. But like Sky Sports, expect BT Sports to only show a portion of their exclusive games free.

 

Safety guidelines are yet to be issued by the government and decisions will remain subject to the continuing fight against coronavirus.

Kick-off times will be as follows (all times BST):

  • 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 and Thursday: 18:00 and 20:00

 

 

 

 

In addition : LaLiga and Premier Sports have confirmed La Liga TV (all live matches) will be made available free for Sky customers in UK during June.
