Why isn't Brighton vs Manchester United live on TV in UK today?

Manchester United can secure qualification to the Europa Conference League when they travel to Brighton on the final day of the Premier League.

Today’s match at the Amex Stadium will decide whether United can sneak back into the top seven and whether the Seagulls can hold onto their place in the top half.


The Red Devils must better Newcastle’s result to leapfrog them in the table, while the Magpies face Brentford.

Of course, United can still qualify for the Europa League if they win the FA Cup final next weekend but a place in Europe would at least be guaranteed via the third-tier competition should results go their way this afternoon.

Brighton have faced a rollercoaster season which included their own European adventure. Roberto De Zerbi’s side have, domestically, flattered to deceive and a defeat could drop them as low as 13th if games elsewhere go against them.

However, Brighton vs Man Utd will not be shown live on TV in the UK.

Sky Sports and TNT Sports have a limited number of games to pick for broadcast on the final day, despite it not being held during the Saturday 3pm blackout.

This match was not chosen by either broadcaster, who are instead showing Manchester City vs West Ham, Arsenal vs Everton, Liverpool vs Wolves and Chelsea vs Bournemouth.

Free highlights will be available on the Sky Sports app and YouTube channel after full-time with BBC One airing Match of the Day at 10.30pm.

From 2025, every Premier League match played outside the Saturday blackout will be shown live in the UK.
