Premier League festive games on TV
Selections on games broadcasters wish to show will be announced later on during the season. Dates and kick-off times remain subject to change.
Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video have broadcast rights and will be showing games live over the festive period. The BBC also show highlights on Match of the Day.
How does the 2022 World Cup affect the Premier League?
As the World Cup in Qatar is being held in the winter months of November and December, the Premier League will take a six-week break to accommodate the competition.
That break will begin on 14 November and end on 26 December, eight days after the World Cup final.
To get all the games in, the Premier League is starting a week earlier and finishing a week later too.
