The Premier League will return on June 17

All games will be played behind closed doors but to ensure fans do not miss out all 92 remaining fixtures will be shown live.

The government pushed for some Premier League matches to be screened free-to-air and Sky Sports announced that 25 of its allocated 64 matches will be available to everyone on its Pick channel.

The BBC also has the rights to screen four games on terrestrial TV.

Amazon has followed suit and revealed their four games will be free to watch on Prime.

“Like the rest of the country, we are excited to see the Premier League return to action,” said Alex Green, MD Prime Video Sport Europe.

“We will be making all four of Amazon Prime Video’s additional fixtures in the 2019-20 season available free of charge; fans will not need a Prime membership to view the games on Prime Video.”


Amazon screened Premier League games for the first time this season and had two rounds of fixtures earlier in the calendar.

BT Sport is the only rights holder yet to announce if any of its allocated matches will be available to watch for free when football returns.
