#LetUsWatch – fan campaign secures broadcast access for September

The Premier League today announced that all of September’s fixtures would be available to match-goers while games are played behind-closed-doors. You can read more about the #LetUsWatch campaign here.

Malcolm Clarke, chair of the the Football Supporters’ Association, said:

“We’re pleased the Premier League has listened to supporters and ensured match-goers can watch their team’s games in September.

“It’s a step in the right direction but this policy must be extended through the season while games are being played in front of severely restricted crowds.

“Fans across the country played a huge role in helping make this happen via our #LetUsWatch campaign – thanks to each and every one of you.”

Ian Mearns MP, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Football Supporters and Newcastle United season ticket holder, said:

“We welcome this sensible decision but regret that it has taken until only four days before the first games are played for the decision to be made. But we are grateful that the voice of the understandably disgruntled supporters has been heard!”
