SPFL confirm new record-breaking Premier Sports deal with eight-figure sum for 20 live games

Premier Sports have confirmed a new deal to show 20 more Scottish Premiership games per season to bring in record-breaking payments to clubs.

The SPFL and broadcaster both revealed the news this morning that will come into play from this summer. A five-year deal has been struck and that brings an eight-figure sum to the top division which comes to more cash per club as part of the agreement.

Neil Doncaster said: “This is tremendous news for SPFL clubs and supporters alike and means that up to 80 Premiership matches will be broadcast live next season across Sky Sports and Premier Sports. This will be the highest number of live matches ever broadcast from the Scottish Premiership.

“With Premier Sports already having the rights to the Premier Sports Cup and Scottish Cup, they have cemented their place as a key broadcaster of live Scottish football.

“We are extremely grateful to Premier Sports for their increased investment into the game, which will bring an additional eight-figure sum into Scottish football over the next five years, meaning further record-breaking payments to clubs.”
