Premier League lands record £6.7bn TV rights deal

The Premier League has sealed its status with the UK’s largest-ever sports media rights deal, spanning four years from the 2025-26 season. While the Saturday 3 pm blackout persists, all 2 pm Sunday kick-offs will now be televised.

Sky secures four of five packages, guaranteeing a minimum of 215 matches per season, including key slots on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays, and Fridays, along with midweek fixtures.

TNT steps in with a minimum of 52 matches annually, covering Saturday 12.30 pm kick-offs and two midweek rounds. Amazon, previously showing 20 matches per season, is excluded from the new agreement.

The BBC gains extra digital rights for online platforms. Notably, this marks the Premier League’s first tender process for rights since 2018, following a pandemic-induced extension of the current £5bn TV deal until the close of the 2024-25 season.

Richard Masters, the Premier League chief executive, emphasizes the strength of the league and acknowledges the clubs, players, and fans for sustaining unparalleled football competition.
