FSA Statement: Premier League PPV arrangements

Earlier today the Premier League announced an interim measure for the broadcast of their competition’s games on a pay-per-view basis on Sky Sports and BT Sports – charging £15 per game for sides that weren’t chosen for broadcast across a typical match weekend.

The Football Supporters’ Association issued the following statement in response:

“Today’s announcement shows that fan power works. At the start of this season the Premier League and its broadcasters had planned to leave match-going fans entirely locked out of their side’s matches; now thanks to the sustained pressure of our #LetUsWatch campaign all games will be available for fans.

“Many Premier League clubs have already taken money from fans, particularly season ticket holders, for matches they can’t attend so we urge them to get refunds out to those supporters as soon as possible.

“We’ve also already heard from many supporters and FSA members who are concerned about the £15 per game being charged and we’d urge BT Sport and Sky Sports to reconsider their pricing for these games.”
