Liverpool: Fans go into meltdown as Premier League games go pay-per-view

Liverpool: Fans go into meltdown as Premier League games go pay-per-view - Liverpool News

Plenty of Liverpool fans were left outraged after it was announced that the main Premier League television broadcasters will be implementing pay-per-view charges for fans during the 2020/21 campaign.

The Athletic’s James Pearce posted on Twitter that the Reds’ next home Premier League game against Sheffield United has been moved to a later time on Saturday 24 October.

The match will now take place at 8pm to accommodate Sky Sports’ intentions to move the game to their Box Office channels, as fans will have to pay £15 on top of their existing packages to watch the Premier League clash behind closed doors.

Gerrard made more appearances for Liverpool than Lampard did for Chelsea, true or false?

There have been no fans inside the stadia in England’s top tier since last season after the Covid pandemic forced matches to be played behind closed doors, with this being one of five games moved for pay-per-view purposes.

This comes after the Government continued to refuse permision for fans to be let back into stadia, despite supporters being allowed to attend in the Bundesliga and other leagues across Europe.

Is the pay-per-view proposition a good idea?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Unsurprisingly, this attracted a hostile reaction from plenty of the Kop faithful, who argued that they already pay enough to watch their team on a weekly basis.
