Premier League PPV meeting today to see if £14.95 scheme is scrapped amid woeful figures

Premier League chiefs and shareholders will today discuss the issue with Pay-Per-View football.

And the decision could be made to scrap the £14.95 scheme following its massive backlash over the past several weeks.

Post-lockdown last season, all Premier League games were shown at no extra cost on TV.

Broadcasting rights were shared across Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video and the BBC.

But this term, certain games have been made Pay-Per-View, including Newcastle vs Manchester United, Arsenal vs Leicester and West Brom vs Burnley.

The latter had ‘exceptionally low’ viewing figures which were the worst to date, according to the Mirror .

The embarrassment and question marks raised around the whole concept have led to the talks today.

Only for the coming weekend have further Pay-Per-View games been scheduled.

And today, the 20 clubs will discuss whether to change it, scrap it or ay least reduce the cost going forward.

Audience figures were seen as good for games with the big six, such as United’s win at Newcastle on a Saturday evening and Leicester’s 1-0 victory this Sunday night at Arsenal.

Sky Sports are not happy with the current scheme
