ESPN kicks off its season-long coverage of England’s Barclays Premier League in the U.S. this weekend. Fulham faces Aston Villa at Craven Cottage in Saturday’s opening match at 9:30 a.m. ET on ESPN2, ESPN3.com and ESPN Deportes.

During the 2011-12 Barclays Premier League season, ESPN will televise up to 74 matches on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, ESPN3.com, and ESPN Mobile TV. All matches will be televised live and in high definition. Most of the telecast windows are on Saturday mornings at 7:30 a.m. and will include pre and post-match coverage from the stadiums.
