Premier League Might Air Closed-door Games on YouTube


As and when the season restarts, Premier League games could be shown on YouTube – but broadcasters are currently against the notion of abolishing relegation.

If the season returns, games should be held behind closed doors, and probably at neutral locations. Some also claimed that this season, there will be no relegation, with groups rising in scale for the next competition and teams playing further games as a result.

Relegation being scrapped will remove some of the excitement from end-of-season games. Broadcasters are against the notion of scrapping relegation, states The Times, as they argue that this is a contract violation.

Under ‘Project Restart ’ the aim is to restore top-flight games from June 12 – while officials from the Premier League are anxious to find out if this week Prime Minister Boris Johnson can ease coronavirus lockout measures in the UK.

As a consequence, all of the remaining 92 Premier League matches will be televised, with others being seen free-to-air on the YouTube platforms of Sky and BT Sport, according to The Times.

Amazon will also broadcast a variety of games under the program, whilst the BBC would be required to display more highlights than they do at present.
