The Premier League’s controversial pay-per-view plans are set to be discussed at a meeting of its 20 clubs on Thursday.
Some clubs are said to be unhappy with the current set-up and believe the move – unpopular with many fans – has been a public relations disaster.
As it stands, supporters are being asked to pay £14.95 to watch some fixtures, as matches continue to be played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to The Telegraph, a number of options are to be addressed at the latest Premier League shareholders’ meeting, including scrapping PPV entirely.
However, it seems the more likely outcome will be to reduce the price to £9.95 per match, though it is reported that no decision is expected immediately.
Instead, the Premier League plan to hold further talks with broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sport on how to move forward.
With a new lockdown coming into force, there is growing pressure to make more matches available on free-to-air television.
