Each of the remaining 92 Premier League matches will be broadcast by one of the four providers when football returns to “Project Restart”.

Sky and BT will continue to screen most games while Amazon is also expected to show a handful.

And the free high-flying action should return as the BBC prepares to broadcast up to five games.

Most clubs have nine games to play while four teams have ten and should be played over six weeks.

Of the remaining games, 47 have already been allocated to television and 32 others will be shared between Sky and BT Sport.



Up to five games could be broadcast on the BBC

Television money has been a constant problem throughout the coronavirus pandemic, with broadcasters potentially facing nine-digit sums for games not played.

Premier League teams have been prepared to pay service providers £ 340 million, but have received the boost they could play in their own stadiums.

This is crucial for clubs from a sponsorship perspective, although they are now each faced with a £ 750,000 bill for stadium management and making sure fans don’t show up.

Teams were concerned that sponsors would demand substantial refunds due to the lack of exposure and the reduced publicity caused by the suspension of the season in March.

The Premier League aims to return on June 12 as players continue to resume limited training on the field across the country.

However, this resumption date is seen as ambitious and unachievable by many and top-level bosses should have more time by UEFA to sort out the final details of the return of football.

Steve Bruce said there was “no way” for the Premier League to return until the end of June at the earliest Sunday.

The Newcastle United boss added concerns for player well-being to the growing choir, saying that teams would need more time than they currently do to return to full fitness.
