Sky Sports has worked with the Premier League to secure a change to the Premier League kick-off times, moving them to the earlier start of 8pm.

The time change comes after the government introduced new restrictions for the hospitality industry, including a 10pm closing time curfew for venues.

Sky wants to ensure that its trade customers can continue to make the most of their investment in live sport while the latest coronavirus restrictions are in place.

The new kick-off times come into effect from Monday 28 September, with Fulham now hosting Aston Villa at 5.45pm and Arsenal’s trip to Liverpool now starting at 8pm.
