Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch 39 live games while the remaining 25 will be made available via Sky’s free to air ‘pick’ channel and simulcast on sky sports. This will enable the whole nation to be part of the return of live games.

This arrangement presents a unique opportunity for sports betting fans on Betway88 and other sites to enjoy after a long break. Fans are set to enjoy up to four live matches on Saturdays and Sundays. To celebrate the return of the Premier League, SkySports will launch innovative new features and updates to give fans an even more immersive experience and share the moments that live with family and friends on virtual platforms.
When Are The Games Going To Be Staged?
Games being played on a Friday will kick off at 8 pm, while those on Saturday, the slots will be 12.30 pm, 3 pm, 5.30 pm, and 8 pm. Matches on Sunday will kick off at either 12 pm, 2 pm, 4.30 pm, or 7 pm. Monday games will begin at 8 pm.

There is still no confirmation on venues and stadia to be used. This goes back to the authorities to see whether clubs will have their way and play the matches at home. It has always been the premier league’s intention to finish the remaining 92 games, and they agreed to do that despite the restrictions of a behind-closed-doors environment.
The Fixtures Left To Play
The full fixture program, including dates and kick-off times, is yet to be confirmed. There are a lot of matches and crunch clashes at the top and bottom. Liverpool, which is so close to the title, still has Manchester City to play with. A showdown between Arsenal and Tottenham is also still on the agenda. These are mouthwatering clashes for punters on Betway88 to test their prowess in the game of betting.
The race for European qualification is on, with Manchester United just three points behind Chelsea and Wolves and Sheffield United in the chasing pack. Norwich are adrift at the bottom, only four points separates 15th placed Brighton and 19th placed Aston Villa.
