STAMFORD, Conn. – NBC Sports’ coverage of the 2020-21 Premier League season kicks off Saturday at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo, as newly promoted Fulham host Arsenal, which won its record 14th FA Cup last month.

The coverage begins at 7 a.m. ET on NBCSN with Premier League Mornings and is highlighted by Premier League champions Liverpool hosting Leeds United – returning to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years – at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Telemundo. Arlo White will call the match, joined by former Premier League footballers Graeme Le Saux and Lee Dixon, live from Anfield.


First match: Saturday – Fulham v. Arsenal at 7:30 a.m. ET – NBCSN, Universo
After being relegated twice and promoted twice in the last seven seasons, Fulham returns for their 15th season in the Premier League after a single-season absence. Fulham return to the Premier League after winning the Championship Play-Off Final. Last season, Fulham were led by forward Aleksandar Mitrovic, who scored a joint-Championship high 26 goals.

Despite being London’s oldest professional football club still playing today, Fulham have never won a major trophy. Fulham’s home ground is Craven Cottage, located in southwest London on the banks of the River Thames, less than two miles from Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge. The club also has a connection with the American audience as they are owned by billionaire Shad Khan, who also owns the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.


First match: Sunday – West Bromwich Albion v. Leicester City at 9 a.m. ET – NBCSN, Telemundo

After a two-season absence, West Bromwich Albion earned automatic promotion to the 2020-21 Premier League season for a record fifth time by finishing second in the Championship last season. This season will be West Brom’s 13th season ever in the Premier League, which included eight consecutive seasons from 2010-18. A founding member of the Football League in 1888, “the Baggies” made their Premier League debut in 2002 and have only one top-division title (1920). Since 1900, West Brom have played at their home ground, The Hawthorns, located in the “Black Country,” an area of England’s West Midlands.
