  1. 1. What would you do post pandemic with the fixture schedule, in particular in the Premier League?

    • Keep as it was before the lockdown
      14
    • Stagger all Premier Leagues games to televise all games

Yeah, but Sky and TV dictate when a game is played.

Plus to the top clubs, who all this is geared towards, it won't make any difference on there attendances whether the game is Saturday 3pm, Sunday at 7pm or Tuesday at 6pm.

When the next TV deal comes around in 2022, I'd be amazed if there are any top flight games left at 3pm on a Saturday.

Fans wanted football back to pre coronavirus schedule. 

Clubs want to keep fans happy. 

The next tv uk Premier league deal will be reduced by 50 or 60 million pounds per season IMO.

Exactly, so the PL will be even more desperate to cosy up to TV - so more live games will be Sky’s negotiating tactic.

Clubs might want to keep the fans happy, but Sky and TV pay the wages. Whatever the TV companies want, will happen.

The broadcasters will love this back to back football, it was heading this way anyway with a few more live games added to the schedule every time the TV deal was renewed, this "project restart" will accelerate the process though and before long, Saturday at 3pm for the top flight will be a distant memory.

We see but I dont think Sky will want back to back games all the time. Fans would get bored. 

This project restart was unprecedented times and by allow fans to watch football as possible cos we cant enter stadiums..

Bloody hell Chaddy! Of course they would! PL football is what drives their entire business model.
