Why is Liverpool vs Wolves not on TV in the UK? Key update on Premier League match

Wolves and Liverpool will both be looking to capitalize on a Premier League game this week as Julen Lopetegui joins his side at Anfield on March 1.

This clash marks the fourth meeting between the two teams in all competitions since early 2023, with Liverpool winning their FA Cup clash and Wolves securing their first Premier League win over Liverpool since 2010.

However, with the pair struggling for consistency over the past few weeks, this tie could be an indicator of where their respective seasons are headed in the coming weeks.

Liverpool are still confident of a late run for a Champions League spot but Wolves are not quite out of the relegation battle with just three points adrift of the drop zone.

Why aren’t Liverpool vs Wolves on TV in the UK?

Liverpool’s Premier League home game against Wolves is on a list of top games not included for TV broadcast or streaming in the UK in 2023.

The reason for the lack of television coverage for UK-based fans is that the game was originally scheduled for September before being postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

As a result, two weekends of Premier League games were changed following a decision to sit out games as a mark of respect, and subsequent games were also changed due to police shortages due to a state funeral for the former British monarch.

With the game originally scheduled for a Saturday 15:00 kick-off, the re-arranged match will be governed by UK broadcast ban rules, but Liverpool’s much-anticipated clash with Manchester United on Sunday 5 March will be broadcast worldwide.
