The English Premier League returns to SBS this season with highly anticipated Manchester United v Manchester City on September 10 at 9:00pm (AEST) headlining a blockbuster opening five weeks to the season.
The Manchester Derby is building as the biggest Premier League match in recent memory, combining both local and personal rivalries.
The match will be the first competitive meeting between long-time adversaries Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola since 2013 and will also feature a derby debut for Manchester United's star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
City and United are the early favourites for the title, and the derby - LIVE, free and in HD - could prove pivotal in the race for glory.
SBS will kick-off its Premier League coverage with the opening match of the season on August 13 at 9:00pm (AEST) as newly promoted Hull City host defending champions Leicester City.
The Foxes captivated the sporting world with their fairytale title success last season after making an incredible turnaround from battling relegation twelve months earlier.
The opening match will be a huge indicator as to whether they can repeat last season's incredible title run.
Liverpool fans will be able to watch two of their side's first three matches with SBS to show Burnley v Liverpool on August 20 and Tottenham v Liverpool on August 27.
SBS’s free-to-air live coverage of the 2016/17 Premier League will be hosted by Lucy Zelic and SBS football analyst and former Crystal Palace player, Craig Foster.
Coverage of the 2016/17 season will see one live match on SBS each round, with the matches airing across SBS and SBS HD, along with weekly highlights on The World Game at 11pm Monday nights on SBS and SBS HD.
