Where to Watch Championship Sunday On US TV: Premier League Gameweek 38 Open Thread

Schedule for Championship Sunday

This is it. After 10 months of an incredible season, the 2013-14 Premier League season ends today where we’ll find out whether Manchester City or Liverpool will be crowned champions, as well as whether Tottenham or Manchester United will qualify for the Europa League.

Manchester City needs a minimum of a draw to be crowned Premier League champions. But if City loses to West Ham United, the only way Liverpool can win the title is if they defeat Newcastle United.

In the other key matches, Tottenham Hotspur needs to avoid defeat to qualify for the UEFA Europa League. Spurs plays at home against Aston Villa. If Villa beats Tottenham and Manchester United beats Southampton, it’ll be the Red Devils instead who will be playing on Thursday nights in Europe beginning this late summer.

Needless to say, it’s going to be an emotional rollercoaster ride today!

Here is today’s TV/Internet schedule for matches being shown in the US (commentators are listed in parenthesis):
