Premier League fixtures: BBC to show Bournemouth v Crystal Palace, Norwich v Everton

The BBC will broadcast Bournemouth v Crystal Palace and Norwich v Everton as the first two of its four free-to-air Premier League games.

It is the first time since the Premier League’s inception in 1992 that games will have been shown live by the BBC.

The Premier League will resume on 17 June after a 100-day hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The fixture list, including kick-off times, for the first 32 matches after the restart has been announced.

All remaining 92 Premier League games will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport or Amazon Prime.

The BBC will show Bournemouth v Crystal Palace on 20 June at 19:45 BST, followed by Norwich v Everton on 24 June at 18:00, and then two matches yet to be confirmed.

As well as the four live games, there will be additional Match of the Day highlights programmes.

The first match back will see Aston Villa face Sheffield United on 17 June, before Manchester City host Arsenal later the same evening.

Sky Sports will make 25 of the remaining top-flight matches free to air, including the Merseyside derby at 19:00 on 21 June. Amazon Prime’s four matches will also be broadcast for free.

The last time a live, top-flight league football match was broadcast on the BBC was during the 1987-88 season.

Bournemouth are 18th in the Premier League, with Crystal Palace 11th.

Norwich are bottom of the table, while Everton are 12th.
