Proposed 7:45 pm kick-offs for Saturday matches from 2019 onwards 


All Saturday matches in the Premier League may begin at 7:45 pm in England next season, meaning that every match will kick-off for Indian fans at 12:15 am.





The proposed move of time – still largely disputed – is due to Sky Sports, the biggest Premier League broadcaster in the UK recorded a 14% drop in television ratings for Premier League matches.





The Premier League is a globally followed event, with millions of fans worldwide. Global viewership ratings are sure to drop with much later kick-off times affecting all of Asia, where a large chunk of Premier League fans live.





What do you think about this proposed move? Will Indian Premier League fans find it difficult to follow their teams with later kick-off times? Share your thoughts and opinions below in the comments!
