What promises to be the biggest and best-ever season of Premier League football gets underway on Friday August 9th, with the freshly victorious European Champions – Liverpool – kicking off their bid to claim the coveted top spot with a must-see match at home against the just-promoted Norwich City.
More Premier League Action on Sky Sports
Thanks to a new three-year agreement with the Premier League, Sky Sports will be the network where you’ll find all the best football action throughout the 2019/2020 season, with 128 live Premier League games set to be shown including every single first-pick weekend match. The goal is to give Sky Sports customers access to the week’s best matches more often, and in the best time slots.
The opening weekend action continues, too, with Aston Villa heading out to Tottenham’s home pitch to see if their return to the top flight brings them the victory they need. And then to round out the opening weekend with a bang, the season’s first Super Sunday will see Arsenal heading up north to tackle Newcastle United. And over in Manchester, new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer starts off his first full season in charge of the team by defending the home ground from visitors Chelsea, but don’t look for all this action on free to air TV in the UK, as Sky Sports is the place where you will find the best of the EPL fixtures live.
Sky Sports’ Head of Football, Gary Hughes, says last season’s action saw an 11 percent increase in viewing on Sky Sports, a trend he expects to continue in 2019/2020. “This season Sky Sports will have more of the big head to heads, as well as two new Saturday slots,” he says. “We can’t wait to get started.”
With Liverpool determined to win this year’s title race – after a brilliant 2018/2019 season that culminated in a final showdown with Manchester City – it’s looking to be a cracker of a season, and the expanded Premier League coverage on Sky Sports makes it the place to be for all things football.
