Boxing Day's Football Fixtures Have Officially Been Released

Boxing Day's Football Fixtures Have Officially Been Released

This year's Boxing Day football schedule promises to be an absolute belter, with NINE games of Premier League action available for all the armchair fans who don't plan on moving at all.

For the first time in years, none of the top-flight Boxing Day football will be shown on BT Sport or Sky Sports when 26 December rolls around.

Instead, Amazon Prime video, as part of a monumental £90 million three-year deal live stream 20 matches, will show all of the Boxing Day action.

There will be a total of nine matches shown by the electronic e-commerce company. They will kick off the schedule with Spurs vs Brighton at 12:30pm and then show six 3pm kick offs, including Chelsea vs Southampton and Bournemouth vs Arsenal.

Manchester United take on Newcastle United at 5:30pm and then we finish the footballing feast with Leicester City's visit of Liverpool at 8pm on the King Power Stadium.

Amazon are also slated to screen Wolves' visit of champions Manchester City a day later on 27 December, while the round of fixtures due a few weeks earlier on December 3 and 4 are also theirs - including Manchester United-Tottenham and the Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield.

Jay Marine, vice president of Prime Video in Europe hailed the securing of one of the remaining Premier League packages, saying: "We are always looking to add more value to Prime, and we're delighted to now offer, for the first time, live Premier League matches to Prime members at no extra cost to their membership.

"The Premier League is the most watched sports league in the world.

"Over these two December fixture rounds Prime members will be able to watch every team, every game, so no matter which Premier League team you support, you're guaranteed to see them play live on Prime Video."

Those who have Amazon Prime already will not have to pay any more than they normally do but new subscribers face paying £79 for the year or £7.99 a month.

And when you consider fans already pay for BT Sport and Sky Sports, it's not exactly cheap as access to all three entities will set supporters back £88.48 a month or £796.32 for a nine month season.
