BT Sport and Sky Sports urged to reconsider price of Premier League pay-per-view fixtures on TV

In a statement, the Football Supporters' Association said: "We've ... already heard from many supporters and FSA members who are concerned about the GBP15 per game being charged and we'd urge BT Sport and Sky Sports to reconsider their pricing for these games." The FSA has been lobbying the Premier League for every match to be broadcast live on UK television while games remain behind closed doors. It added: "Today's announcement [ by the Premier League] shows that fan power works.

At the start of this season the Premier League and its broadcasters had planned to leave match-going fans entirely locked out of their side's matches; now thanks to the sustained pressure of our #LetUsWatch campaign all games will be available for fans.

"Many Premier League clubs have already taken money from fans, particularly season ticket holders, for matches they can't attend so we urge them to get refunds out to those supporters as soon as possible."
