Once again, thanks for the list. Too bad I don't have Setanta. I guess I might catch some of the Villa-Spurs match, and a few minutes with Inter-Fiorentina....

So by scheduling the ManU-Liverpool game at that time, are the marketing folks at the BPL going for the Asian market (which would be prime time for them, I think)?

J-J, early kick-off for Manchester United-Liverpool is all about security. Lunchtime start = less time for trouble in the pubs beforehand.

Why do you call it the BPL? Is Barclay's paying you sponsorship money to call it that?

Ha! Seriously - it's just the Premier League (formerly the Premiership, but that moniker has actually been done away with).

Okay, FINE -- Eee-Pee-Elll. Happy now? :-)

As a Washingtonian - I get my fill of acronyms. English Premier League, if you don't mind and US National Team or just US - since you're not asking :-D

A dumb question -- does anyone know what the TV rights are in the US for premier league matches? Seems like most of the better contests wind up on Setanta, which of course I don't have. Is it similar to the way things work for NFL, NBA, etc?

teamn, and others without Setanta: There are web sites that stream the games. Check out something called the TVU player.

Go Gooners!
Going to watch Arsenal.

Posted by: Wiggan | March 13, 2009 1:43 PM | Report abuse

teamn - here's the breakdown (roughly)...

FSC owns the rights, but they subcontract about half their matches to Setanta. Those matches are in the same time slots every league round/weekend.

Saturday early morning kickoff (our time) - Setanta
Saturday 10am kickoff - FSC (choice)
Saturday 10am kickoff - Setanta (choice - I think this is based on the Setanta Ireland pick for that time)
Saturday 10am kickoff - Setanta (Xtra/Broadband)
+ delayed coverage on both for other 10am kickoffs
Saturday late kickoff - FSC
Sunday early kickoff - Setanta
Sunday late kickoff - FSC (this is often the big TV match of the weekend in the UK)
Monday night (when applicable) - Setanta

Hey everyone,

See below from United:

"Dear United supporters,

Earlier this week, Kevin Payne asked for your support in e-mailing and calling state and county lawmakers with messages of support for our stadium proposal in Prince George's County. You responded with a deluge of e-mails that has dwarfed anything Annapolis has ever witnessed. It is truly moving the needle for us and we'll forever appreciate the passion, the creativity and the effort you all continue to display in support of our organization on the field and off.

We're again asking for your support next Tuesday in Annapolis. While we know that many of you have work obligations, we're asking our supporters, that are able, to join us at hearings before the House Appropriations Committee and Senate Budget and Taxation Committee. Our fans will gather at 12 noon at Annapolis City Dock, which is the harbor front park at the end of the boardwalk in downtown Annapolis. People should park at meters or the city garage on Duke of Gloucester Street. Typing Susan Campbell Park, Annapolis, MD into google maps will give you the exact location.

The hearing mentioned is the first and, perhaps, most important step as the state legislature considers the bills that will enable D.C. United to contract with the Maryland Stadium Authority to build a new stadium in Prince George's County. The hearings begin at 1:00 p.m. Our collective presence is hugely important.

Those wishing to travel en masse to Annapolis may gather at RFK Stadium. A caravan will leave Lot 5 at 11:00 a.m. 
In the meantime, please continue to send e-mails via this link. They do make a difference. We're also encouraging fans to write and call Governor O'Malley, Lt. Governor Brown, and the Secretary of State's office.

What: D.C. United Stadium Rally
When: 12 noon, Tuesday, March 17
Where: Annapolis City Dock, 1 Dock St., Annapolis, MD
Who: D.C. United stadium supporters

Thanks again for all that you do. D.C. United's great strength is the collection of players, staff and fans that make up our family. Together, we achieve great things.

Doug Hicks
Vice President, Communications"

Kev29, USWNT or USMNT?

The list is awesome. I remember the days when I had to wait 2 weeks for Soccer America magazine just to get results for a match. I'll watch Everton on Sat. and Aston Villa on Sunday. Off topic but, I'm most interested in the World Baseball Classic (Baseball's World Cup) Go USA and Netherlands!!!
