Why Liverpool vs Fulham WON’T be Televised in the UK
Liverpool are set to host Fulham at last on Wednesday evening, 46 days after its original scheduled date, yet the match won’t be broadcast live in the UK.
It’s the final late kick-off at Anfield for the Reds on Wednesday as they welcome Fulham (2000 BST) and aim to stretch their winning streak to five games.
This league encounter was initially postponed back in March owing to the Cottagers’ participation in the FA Cup quarter-finals – two rounds further than Liverpool achieved in their title-defending year.
The fixture had been planned for Saturday, 18th March with a 3pm kick-off, which is the reason it now cannot be shown live despite the change of date.
Its original start time fell under the domestic blackout rule, designed to safeguard lower league attendances, having not been chosen for television by either Sky Sports or BT Sport.
The match cannot be altered and added to the UK’s broadcast schedule, even though it has since been shifted to a midweek evening, as the rule still applies.
The exact same situation occurred with the Reds’ encounter with Wolves at the end of February, a game that had to be rescheduled due to the Queen’s passing, moving from a 3pm Saturday kick-off to a midweek evening slot.
Once more, devoted Reds fans will likely turn to official coverage from international IPTV providers such as Peacock, NBC Sports, DAZN, Bein Sports and the like, using a VPN like Liberty Shield; or catch the highlights later on BBC One’s Match of the Day.
