Premier League clubs will now allow all games in September to be shown live on television.

Fans will not be allowed into Premier League stadiums until next month at the earliest due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There is hope that fans will be able to return on October 3 with the Prem previously announcing that an additional 20 matches would be broadcast next season in comparison to last campaign.

Initially, 11 matches were not going to be shown on TV with Sky Sports and BT Sport having picked their matches.

But with fans being unable to attend matches, Premier League clubs have finalised an agreement for all games in September to be shown on the box.

The BBC and Amazon Prime could gain some matches, according to the Evening Standard, with Sky Sports expected to be given the bulk of the 11 games.

The UK government recently urged the Premier League to put every match on TV amid the empty stadiums.

A spokesman for the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport had said: "Our focus is on working with the football authorities, safety and medical experts to get fans back in stadia as quickly as possible.

"It is for the Premier League and its broadcast partners to come to an agreement on screening matches.

"However we urge them to follow the spirit of Project Restart and listen to clubs' loyal fans and consider what can be achieved in the meantime."

It was previously confirmed the Premier League had severed all ties with a broadcaster in China in a deal that was reported to be worth around £500m.

Clubs also voted to drop the five substitutes rule that was introduced during Project Restart.

It means teams will revert to only being able to make three changes from the start of the new season.

Drinks breaks will also no longer feature midway through the first and second halves of matches.
