The live screenings of English Premier League (EPL) matches in community clubs here kicked off with the match between Hull City and Chelsea at nine clubs, including Tampines West CC, on Saturday night.

This, following a move by SingTel mio TV and the People's Association (PA) to screen selected EPL matches in 23 CCs.

While the idea of screening football matches in public is not new - some 2010 World Cup matches were also aired in CCs - mio TV is now committing to screening selected matches weekly till May 11, the season's final day.

The nine clubs that screen the live matches on Saturday were Tampines West, Buona Vista, Chong Pang, Kallang, Nee Soon South, Telok Ayer Hong Lim Green, West Coast, Woodlands and Yio Chu Kang.

Fourteen others will commence screening after Sunday. They are Boon Lay, Bishan, Cheng San, Chua Chu Kang, Fengshan, Hong Kah North, Pasir Ris Elias, Paya Lebar Kovan, Punggol, Jurong Spring, Tampines Central, Toa Payoh Central, Sengkang and Ulu Pandan.
