ESPN and BSkyB score with the SPL rights

by David Allen



Finally, despite all of the counter arguments against the deal, the Scottish Premier League (SPL) has sign an agreement that will give the live football match rights to Sky Sports and the sporting newcomer ESPN.

There was talk of an alternative deal, where Celtic and Ranger would take on the contract, but this has not materialised and so the bid from the satellite broadcasters, of just 65 million, will go ahead.
Effectively this means that the SPL is accepting half the amount of money that the original deal was worth.

Collapsed satellite broadcaster Setanta had a deal worth 125 million with the SPL.
This lack of cash is going to have an effect on some of the clubs that rely on the income from TV to survive.
