Chelsea and Fulham games moved for TV

Facebook agrees €226m Premier League deal - report Facebook reportedly agree groundbreaking Premier League deal
Noah Ferguson | 10 July, 2018, 15:55

The calendar of the first week-end of the Premier League in the new season has become known.

The earlier closure of the window also means foreign clubs are able to wait until the Premier League can only sell overseas before making approaches to English clubs to pick up players at a cut price - leaving them with no ability to bring in a replacement. The deal valued at £200 million will run through till 2022.

Along with Amazon, Facebook was widely tipped to make a play for the Premier League's domestic rights this year, with the league specifically structuring two packages to make them more attractive to the tech giants.

In six weekends time, the new premier league season will be upon us and we'll find out whether any potential signing has improved us as a footballing unit. The company was rumoured to sign a?300 crore deal previous year with Indian Premier League but wasn't successful.

However, the action will only be available to their Amazon Prime UK subscribers, which is the online seller's premium service available for a fee.

Emery must have wondered whether a black cat had crossed his path before the fixtures were announced, as his United side faces 2017 champions Chelsea the following Sunday, with the game switched from the Saturday so it can be shown live.
