Premier League Games Set To Be Shown On YouTube For Free: Reports

Premier League officials want all 92 games to be broadcast and YouTube is being considered as the best platform to go ahead with Project Restart.

Premier League

With the pandemic wreaking havoc and Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta testing positive for COVID-19, the Premier League was suspended earlier this year. With 92 games left to play, clubs were dealt a major financial blow due to the lack of revenue and the piling up of the wages of playing and non-playing staff. After much clamour for a Premier League return, reports indicate that the Premier League remaining fixtures will be played behind closed doors in June.

According to The Sun, when the Premier League return goes through, games will be broadcast for free on YouTube. It is reported that some matches will be shown on specific YouTube channels so that fans do not miss out on any games after the proposed Premier League return. A proposal has been kept in front of BT Sport, Sky Sports and YouTube which is yet to be discussed in detail. Premier League officials want all the 92 games to be broadcast and YouTube is being considered as the best platform to bring 'Project Restart' to fruition.
