The Premier League has finally returned! We are excited to announce to all sport lovers that DStv and GOtv will broadcast all the remaining games of the 2019-20 season, which kicks off on Wednesday, 17th June, live on SuperSport.
Topflight football in England has been placed on a hiatus owing for over three months following the outbreak of the pandemic which silenced several activities across the globe.

The Gunners come into the clash placed ninth on the log, but at least looking to build momentum after a 1-0 win over London rivals West Ham United in their last clash before the league suspension.
Meanwhile, Manchester Cityare relatively safe in second spot but will be hoping to claim the three points and ensure that Liverpool does not secure the Premier League title in their first match upon resumption.
Also, Wednesday marks a crucial clash for relegation-threatened Aston Villa who will host Sheffield United in Birmingham. The match will air live on SuperSport 3 & 10 on DStv at 6pm and GOtv SuperSport Select 2.
