Premier League’s remaining November fixtures and TV schedule as PPV scrapped

The Premier League have confirmed the fixture schedule for its remaining matches in November.

There is also confirmation that there will be no more pay-per-view fixtures between now and the end of the year.

And there will be a return of free-to-air fixtures with some matches set to be shown on the BBC – starting with Fulham vs Everton at noon on Sunday, November 22.

A Premier League statement confirmed on Friday: “The Premier League today announces that all fixtures from Saturday 21 November, and throughout the Christmas and new year period, will be made available to fans to watch live in the UK.

“Working with our broadcast partners, and with the support of clubs, all matches will be shown via existing Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon and BBC services.”

However, the situation remains subject to change in 2021.

“The agreement will be reviewed in the new year following consultation with clubs, broadcast partners and in line with any decisions made by Government regarding the return of spectators to stadiums.

“The Premier League and our clubs remain committed to the safe return of fans as soon as possible.”

The Premier League and its clubs have received fierce backlash since its introduction of pay-per-view, with matches on Sky Sports Box Office and BT Sport Box Office, charged at £14.95.

Top-flight clubs voted 19-1 in favour of the "interim solution", with only Leicester City voting against its introduction.

Many fans elected to boycott pay-per-view, with supporters' groups across the country up and down the country instead using their £14.95 to donate food to foodbank charities.

But while it has been scrapped for now, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has intimated that it could return, in one incarnation or another, in 2021.

"We took the decision to move to pay-per-view, now we're reviewing that decision," he told the Department for Culture, Media and Sport earlier this week.

"We will be changing direction and moving away from it and taking another step that will see us through lockdown, the Christmas period and into January, but I cannot say what it is."

Masters said last month the £14.95 price was "defensible."
