Watch Premier League Live Here: 2020-21 Matches
After a period of extended uncertainty, football season has now commenced for the Premier League as well as for major European football leagues like La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga. Fans cannot view Premier League live and in person, due to Coronavirus transmission concerns, but they can still watch Premier League on TV via live coverage.
The COVID19 pandemic led to a delay in the end of the 2019-2020 Premier League season with final matches delayed until July. Before the commencement of the 2020-2021 season a Coronavirus testing regimen was developed, which will see players and staff tested twice per week.
