Where and when to watch Sheffield United upon return - kickoff times, TV rights etc

Every single Sheffield United match will be available to watch on TV somewhere when the 2019/20 season resumes later this month.

Top flight football in England has been suspended since March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, it is set to return on Wednesday, June 17 as part of ‘Project Restart’.

The first fixture back will involve the Blades as they travel to face Aston Villa. That match is expected to kickoff at 6pm and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

All games will be played behind closed doors, so the only opportunity United fans will get to see their team in action will be on TV.

That is why every single one of the 92 remaining fixtures will have different kickoff times. It will mean that, if they have access to all the broadcasters, someone could watch all 92 matches.

Following that first fixture back at Villa Park, the next match for the Blades is a trip to Newcastle United on Saturday, June 20. The Yorkshire Post reports that will kickoff at 2pm and will also be shown on Sky Sports.

Of the 92 matches, 64 will be broadcast by Sky. However, they have decided to show 25 of those fixtures free-to-air to their customers. As yet, there is no clarification on which games they will be.

Following that match at St James’ Park is another away trip. On Wednesday, June 24 they will take on Manchester United at 6pm.

It was initially thought that this might be staged at a neutral venue. However, according to the Daily Mail, Greater Manchester Police have approved it being held at Old Trafford.

That fixture will also be on Sky Sports.

The games continue to come thick and fast, with the rearranged FA Cup quarter-final with Arsenal set to take place on Saturday, June 27 at 5pm. BT Sport will broadcast it.

After that Tottenham Hotspur visit Bramall Lane on Thursday, July 2. That match kicks off at 6pm and will be shown on Sky Sports.
