According to Fox Soccer Channel Executive Vice President David Sternberg, he’s quoted in USA Today saying that the network may use the 2:30-4:30pm ET Saturday timeslot for Serie A matches.
While it’s good news for fans of Italian soccer, it’s a big blow for fans of the Premiership and presumably means that there’ll be two fewer matches each week (on average) from Fox Soccer Channel (now that the Monday 3pm ET live match is going to Setanta). Of course, it’s possible that Fox may decide to show the tape-delayed match at a different time of the day on Saturday or Sunday. However, now that Fox Soccer Channel has TV rights to many MLS matches, the Saturday evening timeslots will be filled with MLS matches in addition to pre- and post-match shows.
You have to wonder whether Setanta Sports will pick up the tape-delayed Saturday match instead.
