Premier League relents on September broadcast schedule

BBC and Amazon gain one match each, Sky Sports six and BT sport a further three

The Premier League has announced all matches during September will now be broadcast on TV following pressure from fans and the government.

Initially, 11 games were due to be played with no broadcast plans in place.

However, the Premier League has now agreed those matches will be shown on TV, spread across the BBC, Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime.

A statement from the Premier League said: “At a Premier League Shareholders’ meeting today, clubs agreed that all 28 matches scheduled to be played in September will be broadcast live in the UK, via the League’s existing broadcasting partners Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video and BBC.

“In consultation with all relevant stakeholders, the Premier League is considering appropriate arrangements for matches which will take place after 1 October.”

There is a possibility fans might be allowed back into grounds in limited numbers in October. A decision about what that might mean in terms of broadcasting will be announced later in the month.
