The Premier League have announced a new six-year broadcast deal with NBC.

The network is the current rights holder in the United States and the fresh deal will start from the 2022/23 campaign and will take the partnership up until 2028, having started in 2013.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters told the division’s official website: “We are delighted to announce our new US broadcast deal with NBC Sports, who have been brilliant partners for the Premier League over the last nine seasons. NBC Sports has significantly strengthened the popularity of the League in the United States in that time through its fantastic coverage and promotion.

“NBC Sports’ Premier League Mornings programming is now a real institution among supporters in America, with fans getting up early to come together and cheer on their favourite club, week in, week out.

“It’s an exciting time for football in the US and we look forward to continuing to work with NBC Sports to bring our competition to even more fans over the next six years.”

Reports have suggested the agreement could be worth as much as $2bn over the timeframe.
