talkSPORT’s GameDay coverage is back for the return of the Premier League with an unprecedented line-up of fixtures including back-to-back Saturday games, plus matches across Sundays and weekday evenings putting the station at the heart of the restart.
The talkSPORT network will broadcast back-to-back Saturday fixtures with live free- to-air games at 12.30, 15.00, 17.30 and 19.45/20.00. talkSPORT will also carry an extensive schedule of additional live commentaries across Sundays and weekday evenings.
The Premier League has confirmed that every remaining match of the 2019/20 season will be available for fans on free to air national radio in the United Kingdom. The confirmed plans for the resumption of the season mean that talkSPORT will have delivered more Premier League games than ever before during the 2019/20 campaign.
To make up for the lack of crowd noise, talkSPORT will include manager touchline audio for the first time to transport listeners to the stadium through the real sound of sport.
Reshmin Chowdhury will continue to anchor talkSPORT’s GameDay coverage alongside commentary from Sam Matterface and Clive Tyldesley plus ex-internationals Stuart Pearce, Trevor Sinclair, Darren Bent and Ally McCoist.
talkSPORT is the only UK broadcaster to have the rights to the hat-trick of The FA Cup, The EFL and The Premier League. EFL restart fixtures are yet to be announced, but as the exclusive rights holder, talkSPORT will have exclusive audio coverage including the Championship, League 1 and League 2 Play-offs. talkSPORT will also provide live coverage of the FA Cup Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final.
Confirmed fixtures on talkSPORT include Watford vs Leicester City, Brighton vs Arsenal, West Ham vs Wolves and Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace on Saturday June 20; Leicester City vs Brighton and Tottenham vs West Ham on Tuesday June 23; two exclusive games on Wednesday June 24; Aston Villa vs Wolves on Saturday June 27; plus the four FA Cup quarter finals across Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June.

As well as being an Official Premier League Broadcaster in the United Kingdom, talkSPORT is also the global audio partner of the Premier League, and will be providing live commentary of every remaining match in the 2019/20 season to listeners outside of Europe via digital streaming platforms and a network of international radio partners.
Head of talkSPORT Lee Clayton said: “We’ve kept the nation's sports fans engaged and entertained throughout lockdown with the best sports conversation. Now it’s time to get back to the live action. Our GameDay coverage will include an unprecedented number of games, with four Premier League matches on Saturdays.
“Radio is the most intimate way of staying across what is happening, enjoying the highs and lows of the action, while not having to commit hours in front of the television screen. Our experts will paint pictures with words from inside grounds that may be lacking supporters, but will not be lacking in action. It’s non-stop football now through until the Euros and talkSPORT is the perfect place to follow all the action. Supporters cannot go to the games, but we will bring the games to the supporters.”
