Last Updated: 20/08/20 10:39am
140 Premier League games will be shown live on Sky Sports during the 2020/21 season with an additional 12 games now included.
In an announcement to coincide with the release of this year’s fixture list, the Premier League have increased the number of televised games from 200 to 220, with over half of the extra fixtures set to be shown live on Sky Sports.
Overall, Sky Sports will be showing 140 Premier League matches live throughout the 2020/21 season, continuing to bring you all the latest twists, turns and shock at the home of the Premier League.
There will also be two additional midweek programmes – one will be played across the weeks commencing January 11 and 18 and the second will be in the week commencing May 10. All of these games will be broadcast live.
The TV selections for the early round of games and those to be shown live on Sky Sports will be confirmed early next week.
Premier League champions Liverpool will face newly-promoted Leeds United on the opening weekend of the 2020/21 season.
However, Manchester City v Aston Villa and Burnley v Manchester United have been postponed to allow City and United extra time to recover from their recent European campaigns, which finished last weekend, just four weeks before the 2020/21 Premier League season begins.
Instead, Manchester City’s first game will be at Wolves on September 19, while Manchester United play Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on that same weekend.
There are also delays for Chelsea, who travel to Brighton, and Wolves, who begin with a trip to Sheffield United, because of their European involvement, which ended around a week earlier than the Manchester clubs. Those fixtures will take place on Monday September 14.
When does the 2020/21 Premier League season start and finish? When will fans be allowed back? What will be new next season?
The 2020/21 Premier League season will start just six weeks after the previous one finished.
