Disruption in Premier League football? 2018 auction finally over
The latest auction of live Premier League broadcast rights commencing in 2019/20 has concluded at last, with three different winners for the first time
The total sum has not been confirmed, but it looks to be down c. 10% from the previous auction at £1.55 billion per season—still substantial, and not far off the BBC’s entire TV content budget
As we predicted, Sky and BT remain dominant, winning 180 of the 200 games per season, whilst new entrant Amazon picked up one of the leftover packages at what looks to be a very low price
