Premier League Return To See 10 Games Televised Over One Matchday

All 10 games are to be televised upon the planned return of Premier League football.

The Daily Mail report that TV companies have been informed told to brace themselves for the resumption of the season, which is set to to happen either on June 12 or June 19.

With no fans allowed in stadiums for the foreseeable future, the plan is to have 10 games per matchweek - all of which will be broadcast online.

One game will kick off on the Friday night and be shown on Sky Sports - with Tottenham's visit of Manchester United one of the leading contenders to be chosen as the fixture to get things up and running again.

The idea is for there to be four games on the Saturday at different times, with the same schedule for the weekend before the action is rounded off with a Monday night match.

It's said that Sky will likely have four fixtures, BT Sport will get one and the other five will be free-to-air. Saturday 3pm kick-offs are now allowed to be shown in the UK after UEFA lifted the blackout rule that was previously in place.

Sessions must last no longer than 75 minutes and pitches, corner flags, balls, cones and goal posts need to be disinfected before and after every bit of training.

Coronavirus tests will be carried out twice per week on players, in addition to temperature checks and questionnaires being filled out prior to every session.
