With fans not yet permitted into stadiums, the Premier League has chosen to make the additional non-televised matches available on a pay-per-view basis. Starting this weekend Sky and BT Sport will be making these additional matches available to viewers via Sky Box Office and BT Sport for £14.95 each.

However, Sky Business and BT Sport Business licensed trade customers will receive these additional games at no extra cost.

Simon Raggett, Managing Director, Sky Business, commented: “We understand that these are challenging times for the Hospitality sector and live sport plays an important role in helping our customers attract people into their venues and drive revenue. Watching live sports in a Sky Sports venue is the next best thing to being at the game and to help create even more reasons for guests to visit their venue, and until further notice Sky Sports business customers will get these additional games at no extra cost.”

A statement from BT Sport confirmed the same sentiment, saying: “Existing BT Sport Business customers will be able to show these games in their venue via BT Sport Box Office for no additional cost.”
