The BBC could be awarded more live Premier League matches for the 2020/21 season if clubs reverse their decision to block fans being able to watch the 160 unaired matches.
All twenty clubs will hold talks this week to decide whether to continue screening all of their games while fans remain banned from attending stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Telegraph.
At a shareholders' meeting on Thursday, clubs agreed to reconsider the move to now allow more than the 220 allocated matches for television broadcast to be aired in the UK despite pressure from fans and the government.

The Premier League initially began talks with their broadcast partners to look at screening every match from the beginning of the season until at least October 1, when teams are expected to be allowed to have a number of spectators back.
The main partners include Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon, but also the BBC, which became the first terrestrial broadcaster to air live Premier League matches after the league returned in a behind closed doors format
