For the first time ever, all ten games from the final day of the English Premier League season will be broadcasted live in their entirety. ESPN will have one game while Fox has released the network and online assignments for the other nine. All games have a start time of 10 ET on Sunday May 13th. The wider soccer fandom stateside has gravitated towards the EPL for several reasons - television coverage, quality of play, Americans playing in the league, and the recognizability of players and teams. If you needed any more proof of soccer "making it" in this country, televising all 10 English Premier League games in a single week has to be it.

Televising live games across a variety of networks has been a fashionable trend with the success of the NCAA Tournament on CBS and Turner and the Stanley Cup Playoffs across NBC platforms. However, Fox is taking it to the next level with Survival Sunday. This year's final day is the perfect storm for Fox and ESPN. Not only is the EPL title up for grabs between Manchester City and Manchester United, but possibly two Champions League places are still undecided (depending on Chelsea's result in this year's CL final) as is the final relegation spot.

Below you'll find all the match details and the ranking of all 10 games from 10-1 so you'll know which games are worth keeping an eye on. Here's your Survival Sunday Guide...
