It is hoped the 2019-20 season can still be finished in a jam-packed seven-week summer schedule

But with games set to be played in front of empty stadiums, football bosses want fans to be able to watch EVERY game live.

Under the plans, most games will be shown on main broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Amazon will have a selection of other matches and with no games due to be shown live on the BBC or ITV, YouTube is being discussed as a free-to-air option.
