As in past years, almost all of this weekend’s ten Championship Sunday Premier League matches will be held on broadcast TV in the United States. We’ll get to the “almost” part in a minute, but the most important bit for Spurs fans is this: Sunday’s home match between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton will be broadcast on SyFy at 10:00 a.m. ET.
Championship Sunday is one of my favorite things about the Premier League because the league requires that all ten matches play at the same time to prevent any possibly collusion between clubs on the final match day. That means all 20 Premier League clubs will kick off at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, and because NBC is a huge media conglomerate it means that they can put a match on a whole bunch of different cable and broadcast TV networks that they own, even ones that don’t normally host sports.
Here’s the full schedule of Sunday’s fixtures.

- Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Manchester City — NBC Sports Network
- Burnley vs. Arsenal — MSNBC
- Crystal Palace vs. Bournemouth — NBC Sports (formerly NBC Universal)
- Fulham vs. Newcastle — NBC Olympic Channel
- Leicester City vs. Chelsea — CNBC
- Liverpool vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers — NBC
- Manchester United vs. Cardiff City — USA
- Southampton vs. Huddersfield — NBCSports.com
- Tottenham Hotspur vs. Everton — SyFy
- Watford vs. West Ham United — NBC Golf (formerly the Golf Channel)
You’ll notice that Southampton vs. Huddersfield isn’t on broadcast TV at all — it’s been relegated to streaming only at NBC. That’s an interesting choice considering that NBCUniversal decided against using channels like Bravo and E! for Championship Sunday this season, and it’s one that will probably annoy American fans of the Saints and the Terriers (though one imagines they’re somewhat of a small group comparatively speaking).
As near as I can tell, Tottenham’s match against Everton will NOT be anywhere on broadcast TV in the United Kingdom, but if anyone can find conflicting information please post it in the comments.
