At a Premier League Shareholders’ meeting today, clubs agreed that all 28 matches scheduled to be played in September will be broadcast live in the UK, via the League’s existing broadcasting partners Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video and BBC.
As a result, Southampton's opening day trip to Crystal Palace at 3pm BST on Saturday will now be shown live on BT Sport.
Sky Sports and BT Sport have already selected 17 matches for live broadcast for the first three match rounds of the 2020/21 season - including Saints' first home match of the campaign against Tottenham on Sunday 20 September, also to be shown live on BT Sport.
Of the remaining 11 matches, Sky Sports will broadcast an additional six, BT Sport a further three and BBC and Amazon Prime Video one each.
The Premier League is also in discussions with BBC Radio 5 Live and talkSPORT to agree a similar solution for radio.
In consultation with all relevant stakeholders, the Premier League is considering appropriate arrangements for matches which will take place after 1 October.
