2015 Premier League Survival Sunday Schedule

The final day of the 2014-15 Premier League season is this coming Sunday. Unlike many recent seasons, there is relatively little drama. Chelsea (84 points) will be crowned champions and will join Manchester City (76 points) and Arsenal (72 points) in the Champions League group stage next fall. Manchester United have clinched their spot in the Champions League playoff round. Technically United can catch Arsenal if they win and Arsenal lose by a combined 7 goals, but that’s unlikely. For whatever a Europa League spot is worth, Liverpool (62 points), Spurs (61 points) and Southampton (60 points) are fighting for them. Although all 3 will get into the Europa League if Arsenal wins the FA Cup against Aston Villa next weekend. Burnley and QPR (30 points each) know they are playing their last Premier League games for at least a year, while Newcastle (36 points) will try to ensure their safety, which would send Hull City (34 points) back to the Championship.

For anyone wondering what the Premier League will look like next season, Bournemouth and Watford have booked their spots in the top flight by finishing atop the Championship. They will be joined by the winner of the playoff match between Middlesbrough and Norwich.

But now back to the schedule this Sunday. NBC, TSN and Sportsnet will have the matches. I’ll add in commentator info if/when it becomes available. All times are eastern. It’s also worth noting that the matches on TSN and NBC are preceeded by the Monaco Grand Prix which tends to run past 10am ET many years.

Premier League 2014-15 Schedule: The First Three Months

barclays-premier-league-logo-300x73If you’ve been struggling the past two months since the World Cup finished and your soccer cravings haven’t been fulfilled by the mostly horrible event that was the International Champions Cup, fear not, for the English Barclay’s Premier League returns this weekend.

TSN and Sportsnet will again go 50/50 on games during the season. Hopefully with the addition of three channels to TSN beginning next Monday, it means TSN will be showing less or no online-only games this season. As a result of the new channels, TSN have only released their schedule for the first two weeks. Sportsnet have their schedule set until the beginning of December with the usual slate of games spread across Sportsnet regional channels, Sportsnet World, Sportsnet World Online NOW and one game on Sportsnet 360. All the familar faces will return to each channel for the pre- and post-game shows.

NBC Sports has released their schedule for the first three months of the season and 11 games will be shown over-the-air on NBC. US and Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has been signed by NBC for a multi-year agreement to provide analysis for them during the season, both in-studio and in the booth.

The full schedule is below. All times are Eastern and as always, are subject to change.

2013–14 Premier League TV Schedule: December


EDIT: Appears there is some uncertainty with the schedule for the final weekend of December. Firstly, Sportsnet has Spurs-Stoke listed as a Saturday game when it’s actually on Sunday. TSN didn’t have said game listed in their press release but do have it listed on their site (which would give them six games for the week instead of the normal five). Sportsnet is also missing Sunday completely from their schedule which would be Newcastle-Arsenal and Chelsea-Liverpool. Will try and find the correct information and update when possible.

2013-14 Premier League Schedule: Matchday 2

Since NBC seems to be kind enough to release a list of commentators who’ll call each match every week, I figured I’d try to pass them along in the form of a weekly Canadian TV schedule. I know some viewers have their favourites and we usually never know who’ll call what match ahead of time.

10:00am, Southampton v. Sunderland – TSN (Joe Speight & Tony Gale)

10:00am, Newcastle v. West Ham – TSN.ca (Gary Taphouse & Davie Provan)
10:00am, Hull City v. Norwich City – SN World (David Stowell & Barry Horne)

3:00pm, Manchester United v. Chelsea – TSN (Arlo White & Graeme Le Saux)
