Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham set to be affected by major Premier League TV shake-up

The Premier League’s key TV decision will have an impact on Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham, as well as the women’s game.

The Premier League is close to finalising plans for a massive TV scheduling overhaul that will have a substantial influence on Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham. So far this season, one game has shown on either Monday or Friday night, with an early kick off and late kick off frequently sandwiching the Saturday 3pm games, with two contests being telecast live on Sunday. However, that is about to alter in the next transaction.

According to The Telegraph, 25% more Premier League games will be broadcast, with four games accessible to watch live on Sundays, one of which will start off at 6:30 p.m. The Saturday 3 p.m. blackout for women’s football is also slated to be lifted in an effort to increase viewing.

Selling off at least 50 extra matches for the upcoming cycle will free up funds to send earnings skyrocketing in the Women’s Super League. According to the story, team officials met in London on Monday to progress discussions about forming what they think will be the first billion-pound women’s football league.

The announcement coincides with the formation of a private equity corporation named ‘NewCo,’ which will run the top two women’s divisions independently. In an effort to increase audience numbers, discussions are currently focussed on relocating the customary 6:30pm games to a 3pm schedule.

As a result, with speculation of the 3 p.m. blackout being lifted, this may be wonderful news for TV rights holders for the men’s game. The door will be opened for more live matches to be aired, albeit this will undoubtedly raise controversy among travelling supporters.

This season’s Community Shield between Arsenal and Manchester City has already been moved from 5:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. due to supporter complaints about coping with Sunday return journeys. More matches will also be available for the Friday and Monday periods in the next TV agreement, according to sources close to the negotiations, with five sets of 50 match packs expected to be put out to tender next month.

Another shareholder meeting is scheduled for Thursday, with proposals for rights sales expected to be reviewed. Some clubs have also expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of games accessible on TV as European football begins this week, resulting in two games being played on Sunday with a 2pm kickoff, but neither is available to watch live.

Despite the fact that the fixture calendar is under greater strain than ever before, the Premier League remains committed to Article 48 of UEFA’s rules, which allows members to select a two-and-a-half-hour weekend time when live football is prohibited from screens.
