Premier League Games Set To Be Shown On Free TV

Premier League games are set to be broadcast free-to-air as part of 'Project Restart' with the government eyeing a June return.

The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Oliver Dowden confirmed the government's push for some games to be aired on free TV as well as the league's broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sports.

"What we are aiming for is to finish the season from behind closed doors from mid June onwards."

All 20 Premier League clubs are set to hold further talks on Monday amid the coronavirus crisis.
