Premier League 2020: BBC and Amazon Prime to show matches live
Staff Reporter | On 11, Sep 2020
Both the BBC and Amazon Prime Video will be showing Premier League matches live this autumn, as the top-flight footballing tournament kicks off its 2020/2021 season.
The league resumes action on 12th September, after a season that was temporarily disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this summer, the Premier League took the step of not only reshuffling its schedule to squeeze in the remaining games but also to broadcast every match, including some live on the BBC for the first time since the Premier League’s inception in 1992 for free.
The same approach is being taken for the new season: with all games to be played behind closed doors for the immediate future, the Premier League will be working to stream every game live online. That means Leicester playing Burnley on 20th September at 7pm will be shown on BBC Sports for free, while Crystal Palace playing Everton on 26th September at 3pm will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
There are 28 matches in total across September, with Sky Sports streaming 18, BT Sport showing 8, the BBC broadcasting 1 and Amazon Prime streaming 1.
