FSA: EFL to end the 3pm blackout?
This week the EFL announced that it would be inviting broadcasters to discuss interest in televising or streaming a significantly bigger selection of EFL games – potentially including 3pm games, which would effectively end the existing blackout.
Rights for all 1,891 matches across the EFL, EFL Cup, EFL Trophy and play-offs could be made available once the current five-year agreement with Sky Sports expires, with prospective bidders being required to submit their responses November 21st 2022.

With all the midweek matches it feels like they have done that already.I am totally against it anyway as it will have a big impact on ground root football
