Premier League issues apology to Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham

The Premier League have issued an apology to Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United and other clubs following a delay in confirming their broadcasting picks for January.

The league were due to announce the impacted fixtures for December and January in October, prior to the break for the World Cup in Qatar.

Broadcast picks for November, meanwhile, were confirmed in September.

The Premier League has cited issues with 'obtaining relevant local stakeholder approvals' as the reason behind the delay in announcing some fixtures, with the picks now released, and have apologised to supporters.


They have also stated their commitment to 'ensure more effective communication' in the future.

What have the Premier League said?

In a statement, the Premier League said: "The Premier League fixtures that have been selected for live television broadcast in the United Kingdom in January 2023 have been released.

"The Premier League apologises to supporters for the delay in announcing these fixtures and understands their frustrations.


"Finalising these particular selections took longer than expected due to difficulties obtaining relevant stakeholder approvals.

"The League is committed to working with supporters to ensure more effective communication in advance of future fixture announcements and reiterates its apology for the delay on this occasion."
