What skysports paid for the premier league tv rights is staggering!

Earlier today, Goal.com reported that Sky Sports and BT Sports paid a combined £4.464 billion for five and two respectively of the seven packages for the 2019-2022 seasons for the next set of Premier League tv rights in the United Kingdom. That’s approx. N2 trillion naira!

PREMIER LEAGUE TV RIGHTS

Rumours also have it that American companies Amazon and Facebook are among those interested in landing those rights

The new deal will allow Sky to have first pick for every weekend match, while also showing the 19:45 Saturday evening matches (UK time) for the first time.

Meanwhile, BT will show the Saturday lunchtime matches in the new deal.

BT have confirmed that they will be paying £295m (N150b) per season as part of the new deal, which equates to £9.22m (N5b) per Premier League match.

The Premier League is undoubtedly the most competitive and exciting domestic league in the world, so it shouldn’t come as a shock.

The previous deal brought in around £3bn, but it is expected that figure will rise with the new agreement, which is done on a region by region basis.
