You Can Now Watch Premier League Games At The Cinema

Football fans can't currently sit outside and watch their team play in the stadium but for a new experience they can watch games in the cinema.

Covid-19 has put games behind closed doors ever since football returned in June. Last month trials were cancelled that would have seen fans allowed back in and now we don't know when it'll happen at an elite level.

Fans who are fed up of watching games at home can at least pop along to their local VUE to take in a game on the biggest screen imaginable.

The cinema outlet have three games from the Premier League on offer this weekend, with Saturday's 12pm kick off between Chelsea and Crystal Palace kicking things off.

If you fancy a double feature then you can also head to the 3pm kick off between Everton and Brighton and, if you can't make Saturday then, Sunday sees Leicester City host West Ham.

It costs around £5 to watch the match on the big screen, although in usual fashion it is more expensive in London, and only limited number of cinemas are showing the games.

In an annoying twist, for those who want to see their local side play, no Brighton, Liverpool or Leicester based cinemas are showing this weekend's games.

Other than Palace's visit to Chelsea, and West Ham fans, the closest cinema for fans of those watching is Everton fans popping along to Cheshire Oaks.

The next step should be watching the transfer window close on a cinema screen, as Jim White frantically tells you which deals could still get done. Hint, it won't be Jadon Sancho.

Of course we can't really imagine football on a cinema screen without Santiago Munez and the man who played Munez in all three Goal movies, Kuno Becker, exclusively told SPORTbible how he broke both his ankles training for the role.

Hopefully no one will be watching any broken ankles on the big, or small, screen this weekend.
