ESPN2 to Broadcast Fulham Against Aston Villa Live This Saturday

ian darke espn1 ESPN2 to Broadcast Fulham Against Aston Villa Live This Saturday

God bless Ian Darke and ESPN2. After their best plans went to ruins when Tottenham Hotspur and Everton cancelled their opening match of the season Thursday, the game that ESPN2 was supposed to show live to viewers in the United States, ESPN will now show a different match live instead.

Fulham against Aston Villa will be the 10am ET game on Saturday. And what a match it’ll be. Fulham, featuring Clint Dempsey, will be at home at one of my favorite grounds in the Premier League, Craven Cottage, against an Aston Villa side, of which we don’t know how they look after losing Stewart Downing and Ashley Young. It should be an entertaining match no matter what.

Join Ian Darke for Saturday’s Premier League broadcast on ESPN2 at 10am ET.

    Very happy about this.

    Happy that ESPN2 is airing another game (and it should be a good one!), but really bummed that the Everton match is postponed. I don’t have FSC, so I generally get to see 2, maybe 3 Everton matches per season on TV.

    Can’t wait to see some Deuce (in HD)!!!!!!

    Although I would have like to see Spurs & Everton, this match definitely makes up for it. Way to go ESPN2!

  5. B says:

    Woot! Definitely wanted to start the season out with an ESPN game. Good news.

  6. King Eric says:

    remember back in the day when it was fox sports world? Definitely not starting the day on ESPN 2, saving it for last as they always ruin the other games by mentioning the scores.

    Good job ESPN. Not to have a ESPN game would have really been a disappointment on opening weekend.

    Let’s just hope that ESPN doesn’t schedule a Little League World Series Game before the Fulham v. Villa match =) We’ll all miss the first 30 minutes of the game when the LLWS goes past the allotted scheduled time

      It’s unbelievable, isn’t it? A bunch of 12 year olds trying to play baseball is more important to ESPN’s programming than the US v Mexico friendly. The week before they did the same thing with a Barca match, showing a bunch of high school kids playing baseball. Seriously, why would anyone other than their families watch it?
