The Premier League has announced that it will continue its policy of showing all matches live on UK television before fans head back to the stadiums.
The announcement came on the day that Brighton Chief Executive Paul Barber said he was hopeful a small number of fans could return this season, but the club was “preparing for the worst and not coming back.”
A broadcasting deal for all games was set to expire at the end of the month, but according to The Guardian, the league said: “All fixtures for the 2020-21 season will continue to be made available to fans in the UK to watch live.”
This arrangement will be extended until fans are permitted to return to stadiums under government guidelines. All matches will be broadcast by current broadcast partners Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video, and BBC.
