Neville slams new Subscription fees for PL matches

Sky Sports Pundit Gary Neville has criticized the premier league for imposing a £14.95 fee on matches that won’t be shown live on a premier league matchweek.

Since Premier league Football restarted in June following the outbreak of COVID-19, All games were shown live to viewers since fans were obviously not permitted from entering stadiums but according to an amendment made today, only five games will now be shown live for a fixed subscription fee while the other games will cost an additional fee.

"This is a really bad move by the Premier League to charge £14.95 for single matches that have been shown free for 6 months!"

A Statement was released from the premier league website today concerning the additional costs of viewing premier league games which read:

 "In addition, the five matches per round not already selected will be made available to supporters on a pay-per-view basis, accessed via BT Sport Box Office and Sky Sports Box Office platforms.

"Clubs today agreed this interim solution to enable all fans to continue to watch their teams live.

"The Premier League has worked closely with Sky Sports and BT Sport to provide this arrangement and is grateful for their support. The agreement will be regularly reviewed in consultation with clubs and in line with any decisions made by government regarding the return of spectators to stadiums."
