Fox Gets Chelsea and Man Utd Season Finales
Fox has just revealed the Premier League season finale matches it’ll be showing on its soccer networks Sunday. They’ll be showing the two most important games. Chelsea against Wigan Athletic (11am ET) will air on Fox Soccer Channel, while Fox Soccer Plus will televise Manchester United versus Stoke City (also 11am ET). The United game will also be available online via FoxSoccer.tv, Fox’s broadband soccer channel.
Both games are must-see to determine who will end the season as Premier League champions. As of press time, ESPN hasn’t announced which game it’ll be showing on its network. And FoxSoccer.tv hasn’t released its schedule but the site will presumably feature many of the Premier League games live on Sunday.
In related news, the following Football League games will be shown this Saturday, May 8:
- Blackpool v Nottingham Forest, 7:40am ET, Fox Soccer Plus and FoxSoccer.tv
- Leeds United v Bristol Rovers, 10am ET, Fox Soccer Plus and FoxSoccer.tv
ESPN3 will presumably show many of the other Football League playoff games that Fox Soccer Plus (and FoxSoccer.tv) aren’t showing. But, again, as of press time, ESPN’s schedule hasn’t been announced.
