Saturday, August 17, 7:45 AM ET on NBCSN

LIVERPOOL v STOKE

NBC Sports Group’s first-ever telecast of Premier League action features the Liverpool-Stoke matchup.

Saturday, August 17, 12:30 PM ET on NBC & mun 2

SWANSEA CITY v MANCHESTER UNITED

Manager David Moyes takes the reins of the Premier League’s most decorated team – returning champions Manchester United – from their legendary manager of over 26 years, Sir Alex Ferguson.   The Red Devils’ first test comes against a fiery Swansea side.

Sunday, August 18, 11:00 AM ET on NBCSN & mun2

CHELSEA v HULL CITY

Chelsea, last season’s third-place finishers, begin their campaign against newly promoted side, Hull City. Jose Mourinho, “the Special One,” is back as the Blues manager to the delight of the Chelsea faithful.  With an all-star international line-up, Chelsea will be looking for strong showing  against the Tigers, whose quest to avoid a trip back to the Championship begins against one of the Premier League’s perennial powers.

Saturday, August 24, 10:00 AM ET on TBD

STOKE CITY v CRYSTAL PALACE

Stoke, established in 1863, are the oldest club in the Premier League and in their first home match of the campaign, they host newly promoted London-side Crystal Palace.  Stoke were known for playing an aggressive, physical style of soccer but new manager Mark Hughes is looking to change that, and playing against colorful manager Ian Holloway’s Crystal Palace, that now boasts rising Spain star and exciting midfielder Jose Campana, will provide an early measuring stick for both the Stoke team in transition and Palace’s rising star.

Monday, August 26, 3:00 PM ET on NBCSN

MANCHESTER UNITED v CHELSEA

In just the second week of the campaign, last season’s first- and third-place finishers meet at the Premier League’s largest stadium, Manchester United’s Old Trafford.  Eight of the last nine Premier League titles have been won by either United or Chelsea and both clubs will be under tremendous scrutiny this season with new managers.

Sunday, September 1, 8:30 AM ET on NBSCN, Telemundo

LIVERPOOL v MANCHESTER UNITED

The two most decorated teams in English soccer history simply do not like each other.  At Liverpool’s historic Anfield, the Reds’ beloved captain and star Steven Gerrard, aka “Stevie G”, will look to help his side earn three points against United in the Premier League for the first time since March 2011.

Sunday, September 1, 11:00 AM ET on NBSCN & mun2

ARSENAL v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Arsenal host neighbors Tottenham at Emirates Stadium for the first edition of the season’s North London Derby and for a tough, early test at home for Arsenal.  The rivalry between the Gunners and Spurs dates to the early 1900s, and with Arsenal having finished directly above Tottenham in the table the last four seasons, Tottenham will be looking to make an early statement that their place in the standings belongs above Arsenal.

Saturday, September 14, 10:00 AM ET on TBD

HULL CITY v CARDIFF CITY

Hull and Cardiff, both promoted at the end of last season, meet early on in their Premier League campaigns, and as familiar foes, having faced each other the last three seasons in England’s second tier Championship, the Tigers and the Bluebirds will be eager to prove they belong in the league when the world is watching.

Sunday, September 22, 11:00 AM ET on NBCSN & Telemundo

MANCHESTER CITY v MANCHESTER UNITED

This season’s first installment of one of the league’s most riveting local rivalries, the Manchester Derby, kicks off at the Etihad on September 22.  The Manchester teams’ stadiums are just four miles apart, but their distaste for one another is huge.  City dramatically won the title on the final day of the season in 2012, leaving the Red Devils in second, while United were crowned champions in 2013 and City were runners-up.  The competitiveness and physical distance between these two sides always makes for an electric game, and this time both clubs will be playing under new managers.

Sunday, October 27, 9:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN & mun2

SUNDERLAND v NEWCASTLE UNITED

Sunderland’s Stadium of Light hosts the season’s first installment of the Tyne-Wear Derby, the name given to any match between Sunderland and Newcastle.  Just 12 miles separate the Magpies and the Black Cats, and last season, Newcastle edged out Sunderland to finish 16th, but both teams sat dangerously close to the relegation zone.  American forward Jozy Altidore, recently signed by Sunderland, will be a player to watch as he works to prove he’s a Premier League force.

Sunday, October 27, Noon ET on NBCSN & mun2

CHELSEA v MANCHESTER CITY

Last season’s second- and third-place finishers are sure to provide an exciting match — Chelsea finished just one win behind City last season.  By the end of October, the teams’ new managers and summer signings should be settled in to their roles, so this match should offer more of a glimpse as to these teams’ chances at the coveted trophy.

Sunday November 3, 11:00 AM ET on NBCSN & mun2

CARDIFF CITY v SWANSEA CITY

The South Wales Derby between Welsh sides Cardiff City and Swansea City is one of the most widely anticipated matches of the season.  With Cardiff’s promotion at the end of last season, the Bluebirds will be playing top-flight soccer for the first time in 51 years, and two Welsh teams will be playing in England’s top flight for the first time ever.

Saturday, November 9, 10:00 AM ET on Extra Time 1

LIVERPOOL v FULHAM

This match features two American owners as Liverpool and owners Fenway Sports Group host Fulham and owner Shahid Khan, who also owns the Jacksonville Jaguars.  While the Red Sox and Jaguars will have nothing to do with this match, the American influence in the Premier League will be on display as Liverpool, who need a successful season more than ever, face the Cottagers.

Sunday, November 10, 11:10 AM ET on NBCSN & Telemundo

MANCHESTER UNITED v ARSENAL

Last season’s leading scorer Dutch star Robin van Persie, aka “RVP,” welcomes his former club to Manchester United’s Old Trafford.  RVP managed a goal in both matches last season against the Gunners, and with the 2012-13 Premier League title in his back pocket as well, his news-grabbing move from the Emirates last season has paid off.  Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will look for some magic from his scoring threats Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud, and Santi Cazorla.

Saturday, November 23, 7:45 AM ET on NBCSN & mun2

EVERTON v LIVERPOOL

The Merseyside Derby, the longest running top-flight rivalry in England (played at the highest level of English competition since 1962-63), features the Blues of Everton against the Reds of Liverpool.  The two clubs know each other well; their stadiums sit less than a mile apart, and they are playing for the 221st time.  Though Liverpool are the historically better side, Everton finished 6th, one spot ahead of Stevie G’s lads last season.  With both clubs scratching at the door to the top-5 and European play, the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park holds much meaning for both sides.

Following is the NBCUniversal schedule for the first three months of the Premier League season:

(NOTE: TBD indicates that there will be one match in that time slot on NBCSN, in some cases one match on mun2, and remaining non-NBCSN games on Premier League Extra Time. Final channel assignments for those matches will be made in the coming weeks.)

    Time Warner Cable can suck it.

  2. footballer4ever - Jul 29, 2013 at 5:37 PM

    NBC/NBCSN and its affiliates, your faith and dedication to world football and specifically to the most excitingFootball League in the world, BPL, will earn you for my tv to be tuned in and accesa them football matches via NBCLive Extra. Thank you!

  3. thememyselfandiguy - Jul 29, 2013 at 7:20 PM

    most exciting foot ball leaguein the world???????

    you have bad dreams my friend. the best league in the world is the german bundesliga with champions league finalists munich and dortmund, followed by the spanish and the italian league. watching premiere league is like watching a AA baseball game.
    if you want to watch real soccer, watch the german bundesliga. that comes from a US soccer fan.

    • klausheissler - Jul 30, 2013 at 6:55 AM

      lol grow plastic german fan, the epl is the biggest league in the world end of lol lets watch Munich win by 30 points lol

      idiot and what would a USA fan know about real football lol

    • hermeneuticals - Aug 3, 2013 at 4:49 PM

      you have boring dreams

  4. thememyselfandiguy - Jul 29, 2013 at 7:23 PM

    so who will be the star in that league? Schweinsteiger, Ribbery, Robben, Ronaldo, ops… they all play in other leagues. even follow the votes for the world best soccer players and you see none of the finalists play in england.
    england = 2nd class soccer.
    the reason NBC bought the right is, because it is 2nd class soccer, it s cheap for them. and now they sell it as 1st class soccer lol

    • klausheissler - Jul 30, 2013 at 6:58 AM

      wrong idiot nbc could have snapped up laliga and panzer boy league together and they would have been cheaper then epl rights and if england is 2nd class soccer the usa is gutter class

      mong

    • kzn12013 - Aug 15, 2013 at 10:28 PM

      just to make sure we stay factual here….
      Gareth Bale
      Robin VanPersie
      Luiz Suarez
      are the current stars in the league… stars that each team in Bundes and laLiga (forget Italy) would die for.

      Robben failed out of the Premiere League

      Ronaldo became the player he is while playing in The premier League

      Cesc Fabregas became the player he is in the Premier League

      Bundes has BorussiaDortmund and Bayern (both awesome). LaLiga has the obvious two (both awesome). After those teams, the drop in talent and competition is enormous. The Premier League is the most competitve and therefore exciting league in the world.

  5. jkgocubsgo - Jul 30, 2013 at 1:01 AM

    I don’t know what you are planning on doing with the 10am time slot, but if you are planning on showing a game on NBCSN you should do a poll and let the fans decide what game they want to see in that time slot.

    • cherry314 - Jul 30, 2013 at 9:41 AM

      This is a fantastic idea! If not every week, then a few times a year.

  6. footballer4ever - Jul 30, 2013 at 2:24 AM

    @thememyselfandiguy

    I am sure the Germans love and play their football/fussball at a high level; Nevertheless, it trails the British premier football league in many things that makes a league markettable and appealing to the masses. Now, Spain is and will always be a two horse league and the Italian football/Calcio league is nowhere the shadow of what they used to be in the past andt the ongoing corruption/match fixing ocurrences sure is not fitting of being considered a “best” league.

  7. thememyselfandiguy - Jul 30, 2013 at 6:11 AM

    nice try to sell the english soccer. yeah we know it was cheaper, because the suck on international level.

    • klausheissler - Jul 30, 2013 at 6:56 AM

      wrong idiot boy the epl tv rights are far higher then any other league it gets far higher revenue too you are a child a liar and a joke?

      got german grand parents have we kid?

  8. tothotspurs - Jul 30, 2013 at 3:39 PM

    The press release needs to read “Stoke City” not “Stoke.” I literally went to the official Premier League Schedule to confirm there wasn’t a promoted Championship side named just “Stoke,” Stoke is what casual fans will shorten it to, but a press release should be more precise.

    • hermeneuticals - Aug 3, 2013 at 4:51 PM

      bit OTT don’t you think. Next we won’t be able to call Tottenham Hotspur – “Spurs”.

      • i0kill0red0devils - Aug 8, 2013 at 7:48 PM

        Let’s not get pedantic here. I actually refer to Tottenham as the “Tots”…..cuz they’re little BABIES!!!! LOL.

  9. footballer4ever - Aug 1, 2013 at 12:43 AM

    @thememyselfandiguy

    You are so immature and sure can’t put two eloquent sentences together. I am not trying to sell English Football, the league sells and promotes itself pretty well to the point NBC shelled out 250million USD for 3 years to start with. If English football is not your cup of tea (no pun intended), but don’t be a fool to tellus La Liga and Serie A is better. As far as football quality goes, i agree German football is of high quality and of an attacking mentality, but even then it would take a lot for the Bundesliga to even come close to the English Premier football league, like it or not.

  10. jmkarter1978 - Aug 3, 2013 at 5:03 PM

    Why wouldn’t you show all the games you could on Spanish channels. 27 compared to 60 something on NBC sports……just another hose job to fans to force us to get NBC sports. Also will extra time be available to mun2 subscribers?

  11. paxonst - Aug 7, 2013 at 1:44 PM

    Will they replay the games like they do on Fox Soccer? My dvr can only record two channels at the same time.

  12. i0kill0red0devils - Aug 8, 2013 at 7:57 PM

    I’m going to settle a debate here:

    1) I am English. Not German, not American. ENGLISH.

    2) The England National Football Team is shit, let’s face it. The last time we were a force to be reckoned with was in the 1990s. Now we are just average at best.

    3) However, the EPL is in my opinon, the best league in the world. That is why players from all corners of the globe want to play in it – and most of the time they are successful in their endeavours……and that, my friends, is why the EPL is the best league in the world….because of the wealth of talent it has from all around the world. It has the best of the best players, period.

    • sli6000 - Sep 2, 2013 at 11:22 AM

      I like Spanish Laliga too where this world best players like Messi,CR7, Neymar,Bale,Fabrigas,Iniesta,Busquets,Ozil,Modric,Banzema, Di maria etc there, in Barcelona and Real Madrid! It’s amazing to see how Barca dance in the goal area!

      But English EPL with very competitive Soccer enviroment there , those big club can lose to any other club make EPL much more attractive than Laliga (uncertain result), MU, MC, Liverpool,Chelsea,Arsenal,Tottenam etc very close.

      I also like Bayern club with talented former Barca coach Pep Guardiola and players like Rebery, Robben etc…
