BBC To Broadcast Premier League Game Live On 26 December
November 26, 2020
The BBC will show a live game on 26 December for the first time after the Premier League confirmed its fixtures over the festive period.
The channel will show Aston Villa’s match against Crystal Palace on 26 December.
The broadcast fixture list was delayed due to Covid-19. BBC also stated that there is no winter break this season because of fixture congestion, with the festive fixtures being shown by BBC TV, BT Sport, Sky Sports and Amazon.
The fixtures have been published in the wake of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp urging broadcasters to talk to each other to ease the strain on players.
