Premier League considering Saturday night & Sunday morning kick-offs

That is not a kick-off time that will please match-going fans in the top-flight as it makes it increasingly hard to get home after an away game via public transport and will be impossible in some places.

When will the Premier League fixtures be released?

Some of those extra 22 games could be shown at 7.45pm on Saturday evenings which, let's be honest, is not the craziest idea in the world for fans who prefer to stay at home.

The Premier League's 20 clubs are now enjoying the proceeds of a £5.14 billion ($6.5 billion) United Kingdom television rights deal for three years up to 2019 - a staggering 70 percent rise on the previous agreement. BT Sport stressed the broadcaster had not made any push towards adding a late Saturday slot when the rights come up for auction again.

Simon Green, the head of BT Sport, is known to be keen the Premier League embraces the idea.

As reported by the club's official website, Mignolet said: "You have to adapt to the time difference, and the heat will also help to prepare us for the season".

Broadcasters will be invited to tender for the Premier League rights for games starting from the 2019/20 season onwards either before Christmas or early next year.

With the current figure of 168 live televised matches per season, the increase will inevitably result in some change.

"The Premier League is more popular than ever due to the fantastic football put on by clubs and the commitment of fans", a spokesman for the league told The Times.

The Premier League begins on Saturday 12 August and features Brighton and Huddersfield for the first time.

Because of the 2018 World Cup finals starting in Russian Federation on June 14, next season's final Premier League fixtures will be on Sunday, May 13.
