“In our opening 24 matches we will show every Premier League team, telling the complete story as the season starts to take shape, as well as the big head to heads like Man City vs Chelsea and Man Utd vs Liverpool.”
While BT Sport can’t boast that it’s got quite as big a spread, BT has been able to get all of the Big Four clubs in six games in the early stages of this season.
On top of this, both of Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League qualifiers will be broadcast on the new BT Sport Europe channel alongside two United home games in August.
Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said: “Football fans can look forward to a terrifically exciting start to the season on BT Sport in the Barclays Premier League. BT Sport will be broadcasting matches featuring last season’s top four six times during the Premier League’s opening stages, and they’ll also be seen exclusively live on BT Sport Europe as the European campaign begins.”
