Sheffield United fixtures on TV: Confirmed Blades fixtures on Amazon Prime | Sky Sports and BT Sport fixtures latest
Sheffield United's TV fixtures are starting to come together after Amazon announced which of the Blades’ Premier League matches it will show on its Prime streaming service.
The Premier League fixtures were announced this morning – with Chris Wilder's men facing Wolves in their opening game, on Monday, September 14.
The new top-flight season gets underway a few days earlier, with United’s clash with Wolves delayed because of their Europa League commitments this season.
Ordinarily, the season begins in early August but last year's lengthy pause during the coronavirus lockdown has meant a later start for the forthcoming campaign.
The Premier League has also accommodated an agreed 30-day break for all clubs involved in the latter stages of the 2019/20 European club competitions, meaning both Manchester City and Manchester United's opening day fixtures have been postponed.
Chelsea’s opening game is also played on the 14th.
Which Sheffield United fixtures will be on TV?
So far, Amazon Prime has confirmed which matches it will show.
Amazon will show United v Manchester United, and the Blades’ trip to Burnley.

Sky Sports fixtures
A total of 140 Premier League games will be shown live on Sky Sports during the 2020/21 season, with an additional 12 games now included.
The Premier League has increased the number of televised games from 200 to 220, with over half of the extra fixtures set to be shown live on Sky Sports.
The TV selections for the early round of games and those to be shown live on Sky Sports will be confirmed early next week.
Manchester City v Aston Villa and Burnley v Manchester United have been postponed to allow City and United extra time to recover from their recent European campaigns, which finished last weekend.
Instead, Manchester City's first game will be at Wolves on September 19, and Manchester United will play Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on that same weekend.
BT Sport fixtures
BT Sport has six extra fixtures compared to last season and will also offer 360 degree live streaming as well as highlights. But they have not yet announced their fixture selection, which should be available next week.
Will there be any free-to-air or Freeview Premier League games?
When the coronavirus pandemic hit, extraordinary measures were taken to get fixtures completed including playing blocks of fixtures behind closed doors and for the first time in its history, the BBC picked up live Premier League games.
That change has been abandoned for the Premier League 2020-21 season, meaning that there are currently no plans to broadcast any Sheffield United games on free-to-air TV.
