Premier League clubs have rejected the request from broadcasters to have extra access to the teams on matchday when football returns later this month, the Daily Mail reports.

The report states the broadcasters were hoping to have access inside the changing rooms, add extra microphones around the technical area and conduct interviews at half-time.

However, all have been rejected by the Premier League clubs.

There are only expected to be two noticeable changes to coverage which are audio feeds from the coin toss and cameras inside the tunnels.

If anything, coverage is set to be limited due to the restrictions of pundits not being allowed in the stadium, therefore, any analysis work will be conducted in off-site studios.

Due to the restrictions, a maximum of just 25 written press and 15 radio broadcasters will be allowed in the stadium on matchday.

It would have provided for interesting viewing to see inside the changing rooms, however, we are ‘lucky’ enough to have the Amazon Prime documentary in the works so it will not be long until we get an insight as to what goes on behind closed doors at half time.

Have something to tell us about this article?
