fa cup trophy

Premier League rights might cost an absolute fortune, but here's a game we can all watch for free. BT Sport has announced it will show the FA Cup quarter final between Bradford City and Reading completely gratis, both online and on BT Sport 1.

The match kicks off on Saturday, March 7th at 12:45pm. It marks the first time Bradford have made it this far in the tournament since 1976.

The following day, BT will show the Liverpool vs Blackburn Rovers match, though this one is for subscribers only.

The BBC has also announced it will air the Aston Villa vs West Bromwich clash on Saturday March 7th, and the Manchester United vs Arsenal game on Monday March 9th.

"This will be the second time that BT Sport has shown Bradford City in this year's FA Cup and because Bradford Football Club have been very passionate about the UK seeing their amazing club run, BT Sport have decided to make the game against Reading available to everyone to watch, online, via BT TV and Sky," said Simon Green, head of BT Sport.

BT Sport secured the live rights to 42 Premier League games for the 2016-2019 seasons. That's up from 38 this season. It might be dwarfed by Sky's 126 matches, but BT has exclusive rights to the Champions League and Europa League.
