Opening live UK TV fixtures for 2013/14 season released

The first raft of matches due for live broadcast on Sky Sports and BT Sport next season released

Liverpool will open the new campaign against Stoke City live on 17 August

Liverpool v Stoke City and Manchester United's trip to Swansea City will be the first Barclays Premier League matches of the 2013/14 season to be broadcast live in the UK.

BSkyB and BT Sport won the rights to show the Barclays Premier League live in the UK for the next three seasons, with BSkyB to show 116 matches a season and BT Sport 38.

The opening encounter of the 2013/14 campaign, which kicks off at 12.45pm on Saturday, 17 August, will have Mark Hughes take charge of his Stoke team for the first time at Anfield. This will be BT Sport's first live offering. Later in the evening Sky Sports will broadcast Manchester United's visit to Swansea at 5.30pm.

The next day, Sunday 18 August, Sky Sports have chosen to show Jose Mourinho's return as Chelsea manager, at home to Hull City, and Tottenham Hotspur's London derby with newly promoted Crystal Palace. The next evening, viewers will be able to see on Sky Sports how Manuel Pellegrini's Barclays Premier League debut as Manchester City manager unfolds at home against Newcastle United.

Among the fixtures to be shown live on TV, which have been scheduled until 1 December, are Manchester United's home match against Chelsea, which takes place on Monday 26 August, Liverpool v Man Utd and Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur, both on Sunday 1 September. The Manchester derby, at the Etihad Stadium, will take place on Sunday 22 September. These matches will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The highlights of BT's fixtures include Chelsea's visit to Spurs on 28 September, the Merseyside derby on 23 November and Spurs' home clash with David Moyes' Manchester United seven days later.
