The Wolves manager believes the Premier League must do more to motivate fans until they are allowed to play matches.
Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo has urged the Premier League to abandon its current payout model to watch games outside of regular slots, amid widespread criticism from fans.
BT Sport and Sky Sports broadcast all Premier League matches as part of their existing football package – a temporary measure due to the ban on spectators on the pitch due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, that changed earlier this month. This arises from an interim plan which states that games that have not been selected to broadcast in October can only be purchased via the PPV platform.
The Wolves host Crystal Palace on Friday. Fans will be asked to pay £ 14.95 to watch the match live.
You have to find a better solution, “said Nuno.” Unfortunately we don’t have the ideal so we hope that intention is there.
“I think that’s the only thing that can help us. What I see is the number of fans who are not committed to what’s happening right now.”
The Premier League said the PPV program had expanded to cover games from November 6-8.
“In consultation with the club, all elements of the pay-per-view service, including prices, will be reviewed before the Premier League games, which will resume next month after the international break,” he said.
