Leicester only club to vote against Premier League pay-per-view scheme

By James Wynn

Leicester City were the only Premier League club to vote against a new pay-per-view scheme which has proven unpopular with fans.

The move means that Premier League fans will have to pay £14.95 each for five of the 10 games over a weekend, which had been previously shown on already existing broadcast packages through Sky, BT, BBC or Amazon Prime since football resumed in June.

Leicester drew praise from fans of their Premier League rivals for their opposition to the move.

“Well done Leicester. The other 19, including my club, should hang their heads in shame,” said one Aston Villa fan on Twitter.

Despite their opposition, Foxes fans will still have to pay just shy of £30 to watch their next two games against Aston Villa and Arsenal.
