Premier League football could be free-to-air in UK once season restarts

Premier League football could be made available free-to-air when the season restarts, the culture secretary has said.

The plan is being considered if football returns behind-closed-doors.

Culture secretary Oliver Dowden has said he had been having “productive talks” with governing bodies from across British sport on restarting following the coronavirus shutdown.
