Pre-season preparations are currently underway ahead of the return of Premier League football next month.
Along with renewed hope, the new season will bring along with it three new teams. One of which, Brentford, will be competing in the top flight for the first time since 1947.
The Bees will kick the campaign off on Friday, August 13, against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. It will be one of two hundred live games that will be available to UK TV viewers throughout the 2021/22 season.
Sky Sports own the rights to the lion’s share of those matches with 128. BT Sport, along with their coverage of UEFA’s three competitions, have the rights to 52. Amazon once again will broadcast 20 matches across two matchdays in December on Prime Video.

What is the cheapest available Amazon Prime Video deal?
Last but not least – and not something you’ll have to worry about until December – is Amazon Prime Video.
Amazon became the first-ever broadcaster to offer: a) multi-choice matches in what may be an insight into how future broadcasting deals work, and b) streaming-only service, that is available either online or through the Amazon Prime Video app.
Amazon Prime comes with a free 30 day trial, so you can technically watch their winter Premier League coverage without paying a penny.
Outside of the trial period, Amazon Prime costs £7.99 per month and comes with additional perks like fast, even sometimes same-day, delivery on items bought on their marketplace.
