BT Sport adds 20 Premier League matches to its line-up from the 2019/20 season

From the 2019/20 campaign, BT Sport will show 52 exclusively live Premier League games per season for three years after winning a second package in the rights auction.

BT Sport has won the live rights to a further 20 Premier League football matches in the UK, taking the total to 52 for three years from the start of the 2019/20 season.

Having already secured 32 Saturday games earlier this year, BT Sport will for the first time show several midweek Premier League matches on the same evening, as well as several fixtures in the split weekend which will create an opportunity for a mid-season player break.

The 20 additional fixtures, bringing the total to 52 games, will also be available to customers in the Republic of Ireland.

BT Sport will continue to broadcast games at 5.30pm on Saturdays next season and then move to Saturday lunchtime fixtures and the midweek rounds from August 2019.

BT Sport has proven success of showing multiple matches on the same night through its UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League coverage over the last three seasons – something that will continue until at least 2021.

BT recently agreed a multi-year deal to offer Sky’s NOW TV service, which includes Sky Sports, from early 2019 – adding to the line-up of premium European football and rugby that sports fans already enjoy with us.

BT has also made top-tier sport far more affordable in the UK in recent years. BT TV customers can access all of the action on BT Sport from just £6 a month. The channels are available via BT TV, the BT Sport App, to EE customers, on the Sky platform and to Virgin Media customers.

Andy Haworth, BT Consumer’s managing director for content and strategy, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our customers even more Premier League matches and to create exciting midweek nights of top-flight Premier League football action.

“The fantastic sport our customers can view continues to grow. Today’s Premier League announcement, and the recent deal with NOW TV, means BT TV customers will have access to all of the best exclusively live sporting action in the UK.

“We look forward to continuing as a partner of the Premier League and showcasing the most exciting league in the world.”

Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore said: “BT Sport is an excellent partner for the Premier League and has an established track record of showcasing the League and the clubs with innovative and engaging content.

“We are very pleased they will continue to broadcast the competition in the UK and Ireland.”

The Premier League is a big part of the BT Sport live sport line-up, which includes the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, the Emirates FA Cup, MotoGP, boxing, Premiership Rugby and European Rugby Champions Cup.

Audience figures continue to grow on BT Sport, with average viewing up 17% at the end of the most recent football season, while a BT Sport record-breaking 8.5 million people watched the UEFA Champions League final this year across our TV and digital platforms.
