Well, English Premier League isn't doing to well over the last few days. First there will be games on Amazon Prime over the season but mostly ALL 10 Boxing day games will be on that ONLY from 2019-20 season.
Then that same season they over paid footballers will have a 'Winter Break'. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44414487
2016-17 season due to clashes, FA ties and such alike, Southampton played a total of 1 game in March. They don't need a Winter break, this will just add to issues.
But money talks apparently. Especially friendlies in China.
