West Ham season ticket holders will today learn the details about season ticket refunds.
A rebate of £340 million due to the Premier League roadcasters even if the fixtures are fulfilled can, potentially, be reduced to £170 million if the season is completed by Aug 2nd, as is planned says Jason Burt the Daily Telegraph.
West Ham sighed a great sense of relief yesterday when it was agreed to use unweighed points per game if the season can not be completed. The Premier League members have agreed on settling final places on straight points per game method if the season is not completed. It means that if no games are played and, for health reasons, the campaign is curtailed before June 17, then Norwich City, Aston Villa and Bournemouth will be relegated.
West Ham supporters should keep Friday evening 19th June keep in their diaries if a report by Jason Burt in the Daily Telegraph is to be believed.
The Premier League have relaxed regulations with the agreement of football authorities forbidding the broadcast of football games in the UK on Saturday afternoon but they didn’t need to bother.
If West Ham is relegated to the Championship the start date of next season is less clear with a restart date to conclude this season yet to be confirmed.
The news that the Premier League will restart on 17th June and could end on Sunday 27th July has clubs looking at players holidays, pre-season and the start of the next season.
The news that the Premier League will restart on 17th June for 92 remaining fixtures has allowed us to calculate a Premier League end date of Sunday 26th July using the TV broadcast schedule of 16 televised fixtures per week.
A report that West Ham may face playing two London derbies from their last nine fixtures on a neutral ground has been emphatically denied .
The release of TV schedules for the remaining 92 Premier League matches allows us to calculate the date for the end of the 2019/2020 season.
