The Premier League Summer Series, part of the League’s ongoing commitment to its U.S.-based fans, provides supporters with the in-person opportunity to watch a world-class lineup of Premier League players and mangers in action. In addition to the tournament, the Premier League will work closely with a range of grassroots and community organizations in each host city to create a program of community and youth soccer initiatives.

The tournament builds on the success of the eight Premier League Mornings Live fan festival events the Premier League and NBC Sports have hosted in multiple U.S. cities since 2018. These events have seen more than 60,000 fans attend live match screenings in iconic locations, coming together to share their passion for the competition.

Peacock’s expansive programming offers the most live sports of any SVOD service in the United States, including live coverage of the Premier League, Sunday Night Football, Big Ten football (beginning in September), Olympic Games, MLB Sunday Leadoff, Notre Dame Football, NASCAR, NTT IndyCar Series, and much more.  Peacock also offers daily sports programming on the NBC Sports channel.
