With the Premier League only weeks away from returning, TV companies are announcing what fixtures they are showing, and a lot of Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the news that their fixture against AFC Bournemouth will be on the BBC, according to The Telegraph.
This is a historic and huge moment for both Palace and Bournemouth as it means it is the first ever Premier League match to be live on the free to view channel.
The fixture will be played on Saturday June 20th at 7:45pm and is a crucial game for both sides. The Eagles sit in eleventh but are only four points from Europa League qualification, and it will be a real signal of intent if they can claim a victory against the Cherries who are battling for their survival in the division as they currently sit 18th, per BBC Sport.
Normally supporters across the globe tune in to watch the Premier League, and with the Palace game being available in Britain for free on BBC, it could bring in amazing viewing figures, it will be interesting to see if this will happen or not.
Here is what fans said following the news:
First premier league team to be shown live on Prime and now the first premier league team to be shown live on the BBC! Figures! 🦅🔴🔵

Early Saturday afternoon in North/South America, evening in Europe/Africa, and Sunday morning in the Far East/Oceania. With many other sports and leagues on hiatus, should get massive exposure. COYP! 👍
