Getty Chelsea is one of several EPL clubs that will play on Boxing Day.

Christmas may be over, but soccer fans know that Boxing Day has a full slate of EPL games. There are nine matches on the Premier League Wednesday, December 26 schedule.

The TV schedule for the EPL depends on where you live. Fans in the United States can watch most of the matches on NBC Sports Network. Fans in Canada can tune in via a combination of Sportsnet and TSN. Finally, Sky Sports will carry the televised matches in England.

Chelsea is one of several top clubs who will play on Boxing Day as part of a busy holiday schedule. Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri spoke about the team’s mindset as they end 2018.

“There is no Christmas for us,” Sarri told ESPN. “We have to play every three days: [Dec] 19, 22, 26, 30, [Jan] 2, 5, 8/9. So there is no Christmas for us. It depends only on the match. If the match is in the evening, we can stay at home the evening before. If the match is at 3 p.m. or 1 p.m., we will go to the hotel, as usual…No, I like more to play football. I am lucky — in Serie B in Italy, we played over Christmas and I liked it very much. In the Italian stadia, there was a wonderful atmosphere. In Italy, it’s not really very easy [to have that].”
