Every one of the upcoming 28 Premier League matches in the month of September will be shown live on television as fans still await permission to fill up their home stadiums.

The English 2020/21 top flight season is due to kick off this weekend with four matches, including the early kick off between promoted side Fulham and Arsenal at Craven Cottage.

Burnley versus Manchester United and Manchester City versus Aston Villa were both scheduled for this coming Saturday, too, but the Manchester sides have had their opening fixtures pushed back due to their participation in the latter stages of the Europa League and Champions League respectively.

There are three weekends of football left in the month of September, and football fans will be treated to live coverage of every Premier League fixture.

Sky Sports and BT Sports will broadcast the majority of matches, with BBC1 and Amazon Prime each receiving one fixture each.

Although the decision was confirmed for the month of September, no decision has been regarding the fixtures in October.

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.

"Sky Sports and BT Sport have already selected 17 matches for live broadcast for the first three match rounds of the 2020/21 season," a statement from the Premier League read.

"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.

"The Premier League is working on a step-by-step approach, while monitoring the developments regarding the League’s number one priority of getting fans back into full stadiums as soon as possible, with safety always being our priority."

In certain friendly matches in England, around 300 fans have been allowed back into stadiums as a pilot project to deem how difficult it would be to police coronavirus measures with a significantly larger amount of people.
