The English Premier League will return to the FOX broadcast network this season.
Sports Business Journal reported Monday that FOX will air “at least” three English Premier League matches on NFL ‘singleheader’ Sundays this year, starting with tape delayed coverage on September 23.
Other telecasts would air on October 7 and November 4, and FOX reportedly plans to add more as the season progresses.
FOX aired three tape-delayed EPL matches on ‘singleheader’ Sundays last year. Depending on whether viewers received the 1:00 PM (ET) or 4:00 PM NFL game, EPL coverage aired at 2:30 or 4:30 PM.
The network also aired a pair of live, early morning EPL matches that coincided with the NFL Conference Championship games and Super Bowl Sunday.
