ESPN2 To Broadcast Potential Premier League Title Decider Between Man United and Man City

man city man united fans ESPN2 To Broadcast Potential Premier League Title Decider Between Man United and Man City

ESPN2 in the United States will broadcast the potential Premier League title decider between Manchester City and Manchester United on April 30, 2012.

The match could decide who will become the champions of the 2011-12 Premier League season. City and United are currently neck-and-neck at the top of the table, and the importance of the late April derby cannot be understated. The Premier League decided to move the match to Monday night in England, which means the game will be shown live on US TV beginning at 3pm ET on ESPN2.

Many had presumed that the Manchester derby would have been shown on Sunday at 11am ET, the time of the week traditionally saved for Super Sunday clashes. Unfortunately, the Manchester Marathon – scheduled for April 30 — prevented the Manchester derby being scheduled for that day. And will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK on the Monday night instead.

Could it be another 1-6 scoreline? I doubt it. But it’s certainly going to be one of the most anticipated matches of the season especially with Ian Darke and Steve McManaman surely commentating the match for viewers in the United States.

In other mouthwatering matches to be shown late in the season, the TV schedule for Premier League matches is as follows:

Sunday, April 8:

  • Arsenal vs Manchester City, 11am ET, FOX Soccer

Saturday, April 21:

  • Arsenal vs Chelsea, 7:45am ET, ESPN2
For the latest schedule, be sure to visit the complete and most up-to-date schedule of Premier League matches shown on US TV and Internet. And a massive thank you to EPL Talk’s Stacy Richardson for updating the schedule throughout the season. I’m sure that all of you can agree that it’s been a godsend.
