The Premier League season is under way and the BBC has more ways than ever for you to follow all the action.

For nine months millions of fans will enjoy or endure hundreds of games, and we will be with them for every goal, sending off, sacking, signing and celebration.

On television, Ruud Gullit, Philip Neville and Rio Ferdinand are joining Match of the Day as it celebrates its 50th anniversary, with the BBC screening more than 12 hours of weekend football TV coverage.

Later in the season, the FA Cup is returning to BBC television after a six-year absence, with 16 live matches on the road to Wembley and highlights of every round.

BBC Radio 5 live has full commentary of 128 Premier League games as well as Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League and Football League action throughout the season.

BBC's Local Radio football service will also provide commentary on around 70 football clubs across the divisions each week. The 39 local stations in England will keep you up to date with all the action as it happens on FM, AM and DAB.
