Premier League issues Invitations to Tender for UK rights
#11
The Premier League’s UK broadcast rights sales process has not yet concluded, but we can announce that five of the seven live packages have been awarded.

The successful broadcasters – BT and Sky – are listed companies and are required to announce publicly the details of their acquisitions.

Therefore, the Premier League is providing this progress update.

BT and Sky have been awarded the following Premier League UK live broadcasting rights for seasons 2019/20 - 2021/22:

BT Sport: Package A
Sky Sports: Packages B, C, D, E

The table below provides details of each of the rights packages.

The value realised at this stage of the process is £4.464billion, with two live packages still to be sold with interest from multiple bidders.

"We are extremely pleased that BT and Sky continue to view the Premier League and our clubs as such an important part of their offering," Premier League Executive Chairman Richard Scudamore said.

"Both broadcasters are fantastic partners for the Premier League and have a track record of making our competition available to fans across the country through their high-quality and innovative programming.

"To have achieved this investment with two packages of live rights remaining to sell is an outcome that is testament to the excellent football competition delivered by the clubs.

"It provides them with certainty and will underpin their continued efforts to put on the most compelling football, invest sustainably in all areas, and use their popularity and reach to have a positive impact on the sport and beyond.

"We will now continue the sales process to deliver the best possible outcome for the remaining packages of rights in the UK and throughout the rest of the world.”

Sky the big winners there!

Interesting to see who acquires the remaining 2 packages

With the level of money once again being invested by Sky and BT I do hope clubs keep ticket prices to a reasonable level. Would hate to see the working class fan priced out.

Who's likely to win the remaining two packages? Not been following this and don't know too much about it really

Looks like Sky have come out on top though especially since Saturday 12:30 is probably the poorest slot for televised weekend football.

Sky have definitely come out on top with the packages. The 12.30 on a Saturday is the weakest one.

An outsider could be looking at the remaining packages, probably appeals to the likes of Amazon
