EThe 2015-2016 English Premier League season has been one of the most unpredictable in memory. I’d like to see the odds on Leicester City sitting at the top of the table while Chelsea languish in 16th and Jose Mourinho gets the sack. They’d likely be the same odds as the Browns, Indians, and Cavs all winning championships for Cleveland this year.
As we move into the holiday season, it’s one of the busiest times on the EPL calendar with the traditional Boxing Day matches and a full fixture list. NBC will be adding some new wrinkles and bringing back some old favorites this month to help enhance their coverage.
– NBC will televise their first ever Premier League doubleheader on the main broadcast network on Boxing Day (December 26th) with Newcastle-Everton at 12:30 PM ET followed by Southampton-Arsenal at 2:45 PM ET.
– NBCSN brings back Premier League Breakaway, the fantastic soccer version of the RedZone Channel, on December 28th at 10 AM ET. Five matches will be featured in the window that day led by Watford-Tottenham.
– NBCSN will air a Men in Blazers special at 6 PM ET on December 28th with Rebecca Lowe as a recap of the first half of the EPL season.
– As part of NBC’s new Digital Shorts, NBCSports.com will feature a three-part series on newly promoted AFC Bournemouth, looking at their journey towards playing top flight soccer for the first time in club history.
