Premier League 'considering late morning kickoff times'

A proposal has reportedly been put forward by the Premier League to move as many as 22 games a season to 11.30am on a Sunday from the start of the 2019-20 season.

The Premier League is looking to cram in additional televised fixtures and could shift Sunday kickoff times to 11.30am, according to a report.

Should the proposal - which has been put forward to cash in on the lucrative Asian TV market - come into effect, as many as 22 games could be shifted to the late-morning slot.

It is claimed by the Daily Mail that league chiefs put the proposal forward at a meeting earlier this week, with the intention of getting the plans in place ready for the 2019-20 season.

The big six clubs in the English top flight - Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United - will likely be the sides most affected by the move.

A report earlier this week suggested that as many as 200 Premier League games a season could be televised in two years' time.
