By now you’ve probably heard of the news that the Premier league will be returning to London for the next season.
The news was confirmed by the Premier Football League in a statement this afternoon.
“The Premier League is delighted to announce that a new season will begin on 30 August 2018 with the return of the top flight to London, the capital of the United Kingdom,” the statement read.
“This season will also see a new, expanded, and expanded television package across BT Sport, Sky Sports, and ESPN3.”
It is the first time since the inception of the league in 1995 that the league will not be based in the UK, and it is also the first season for the new TV deal.
“The Premier league is one of the biggest and most successful leagues in the world and it will be interesting to see how it’s going to evolve from here, especially if the TV rights are expanded to include some new and interesting programming.
