The Premier League have today confirmed that 2019/20 season will return on June 17th – with all 92 games set to be shown live on TV.
The first two games on Wednesday 17th June will be Aston Villa v Sheffield Utd and Man City v Arsenal – due to all four sides having games in hand as things stand.
This would take all teams to 29 games played, meaning the next round of games would then be staggered over the weekend of June 19/20/21st.
Then to the spread of games on TV, the tweet below highlights where they’ll be shown, with Sky Sports (64), BT Sport (20) , BBC (4) and Amazon Prime (4) all set to cover the remaining 92 games:
