ESPN2 to show EPL Games – It’s official!

Breaking news just in to the EPL Talk desk. ESPN2 will show the opening game of the 2009-2010 season between Chelsea and Hull City at 7:45am ET Saturday.

“Chelsea v Hull 7:45 AM on ESPN2 – and look for the EPL every or most Saturdays in that time slot,” reported ESPN Spanish-language announcer Roberto Abramowitz on the North American Soccer List.

We have a message in to ESPN to confirm the news, but since it’s coming from a person at ESPN who publicly posted the information, it looks like the real deal.

More details to come.

  1. Sweet!!! I just saw the link. Good luck Jozy we are all rooting for you!

  2. More important question though…is “Special 1 TV” coming back?!?!?!

  3. Wow, I looked for games last night and didn’t find anything.

    Just to be clear, this means the American ESPN2 feed will begin airing EPL games, as well?

    • Yes the coverage started at 7:30 AM ET in the US on ESPN2 and also in HD and will continue weekly at the same time every Saturday except when there is no 7:45 game. In that case it will be a 10 AM ET start. Next week the game has Man Utd. vs Wigan.

      Also ESPN2 may also show games on mondays at 3 PM ET.

      • Awesome, thanks for the clarification.

        I was a bit disappointed last night when I thought they weren’t going to regularly air games here in the States from their newly-signed contract (Time Warner had not yet updated the listing).

        Glad to hear that won’t be the case. Between FCS and ESPN, we should be able to get a handful of live games each week.
