Premier League ordered to show free-to-air games and share money to restart

The demands were made by the culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, at a meeting on Thursday at which he gave the green light for matches to resume provided it is safe to do so. Watch: Project Restart is on track, says Wolves captain Coady (Sky Sports) “The government is opening the door for competitive football to return safely in June,” Dowden said. The government and our medical experts will continue to offer guidance and support to the game ahead of any final decision which would put these plans into action.” The Premier League is in negotiations with its broadcast partners Sky and BT over finding a solution to showing some matches free-to-air if and when the season resumes.
