Finally, it's back. After what seemed like an eternity without football, the Premier League is making its grand return. It will be an action-packed few weeks as almost three months of the league is being squeezed into a month and a half of football. With Premier League football on almost every day from now until the end of July, it will be a little bit like that Euro 2020 that we're missing out on. We also have access to more free Premier League games than ever.
One more sleep until we have Premier League football back in our lives! https://t.co/iYGNgXBuhC

The absence of fans will ensure that it will be football like we've never seen. There's no doubt that it will take a bit of getting used to. But at least, after all this time, we have the footie back on our tellies. All 92 remaining games will be broadcast live, and at staggered times so fans can enjoy every minute of the remainder of the season.
To compensate for being played behind closed doors, a lot of these games are being broadcast for free. So where can we watch these free Premier League games?
Where can I watch free Premier League matches in Ireland?
Most Premier League games will still be shown on Sky Sports Premier League and BT Sports 1. However, there are a few games that will be available to watch for free. Some games, such as Norwich v Southampton on Friday and Newcastle v Sheffield on Sunday, will be available on Sky One and Pick. Other games, like Bournemouth v Crystal Palace, will be broadcast on BBC One. If you are watching Norwich v Everton the following week, you will have to watch the first half on BBC One and switch over to BBC Two for the second half.
How can I watch Pick?
Since Sky is broadcasting 25 games on Pick, you'd probably want to remember the channel number. Pick is available at the following channel numbers:
- Virgin Media: 133
