All Premier League games to be televised until fans return to stadia

All Premier League games will continue to be made available by broadcasters and televised to a UK audience until fans are allowed to return to stadia.

English football’s top tier has been played behind closed doors since the resumption of the 2019/20 Premier League season in June, the division returning without supporters following an initial three-month hiatus to the campaign.

With fans unable to attend fixtures, the Premier League moved to make all fixtures available to supporters via the division’s broadcast partners.

The ongoing threat of the coronavirus pandemic has meant supporters have largely been kept away from grounds, though some Premier League clubs were permitted to allow a small section of fans before the latest UK lockdown amid rising cases.

With fans once again prevented from attending fixtures a decision was made to continue broadcasting all Premier League games, a controversial pay-per-view scheme for top-flight games initially introduced in October, before being cancelled the following month following protests amongst fan groups.

According to the BBC, all games will remain available to watch live at no extra cost to broadcast subscribers until fans are permitted to attend fixtures once more, with Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video and the BBC set to announce their selections for March’s schedule imminently.
