Fox Soccer Channel Losing Monday EPL Matches

Oliver Tse from is reporting that starting with the 2007-2008 EPL season, the Monday night matches (usually at 3pm ET) will air on Setanta Sports instead of Fox Soccer Channel in the U.S.

Presuming that the rest of the weekend schedule remains the same, that means that Fox Soccer Channel will keep the Saturday matches at 10am ET, Noon ET and 2:15pm ET, and the Sunday match at 11am ET, while Setanta will carry the Saturday matches at 7:45am ET, 10am ET (two, one on Setanta Xtra), Sunday at 8:30am ET and now Monday at 3pm ET.

In comparison with last season, there have been far fewer matches played on Monday’s this season. However, this could be another argument for soccer fans to push them over the edge and subscribe to Setanta on DirecTV or ITVN.
