HomeSports CoverageSky wins Five Premier League Packages

BskyB has won 5 of 6 premier League football packages for the seasons 2010/11 to 2012/13.

Sky currently has 4 packages, mainly showing Premier League football on Saturday Afternoons, two matches on a Sunday and midweek games.

The fifth package will see a return of Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.

Setanta keeps hold of package D. 23 matches with a minimum of 18 played at 1730 on Saturdays.

Premier League Chief Executive, Richard Scudamore, said: “The Barclays Premier League is a fantastic competition. The continued investment in playing talent and facilities made by the clubs is largely down to the revenue generated through the sale of our broadcast rights.

“The live UK rights are the largest contribution to the revenues we distribute centrally to the clubs and this deal gives them the stability to plan and invest in the most important aspect of our business – the football – everything else flows from that.

“I look forward to continuing our good working relationship with BSkyB and Setanta who both provide excellent programming for fans of Premier League football.”
