As and when the season restarts, Premier League games could be shown on YouTube- but broadcasters are currently against the notion of abolishing relegation.
If the season returns, games should be held behind closed doors, and probably at neutral locations. As a consequence, all of the remaining 92 Premier League matches will be televised, with others being seen free-to-air on the YouTube platforms of Sky and BT Sport, according to The Times.
Under ‘Project Restart’ the aim is to restore top-flight games from June 12 – while officials from the Premier League are anxious to find out if this week Prime Minister Boris Johnson can ease coronavirus lockout measures in the UK.
Amazon will also broadcast a variety of games under the program, whilst the BBC would be required to display more highlights than they do at present.
Some also claimed that this season will be no relegation, with groups rising in scale for the next competition and teams playing further games as a result. Stopping relegation will remove some of the excitement from end-of-season games and the Times says broadcasters argue this is a contract violation.
Nevertheless, broadcasters are against the notion of scrapping relegation, states The Times.
