The Premier League has agreed deals with Sky Sports and TNT Sports for live UK coverage of matches and with BBC Sport for the free-to-air highlights package.

All three agreements cover the four-year period starting from the 2025/26 season. The Premier League said they are the largest sports media rights deals ever concluded in the UK, worth £6.7billion across the four-year period.

Sky Sports has been awarded a minimum of 215 live matches per season, which will include more than 140 matches played at weekends, evening matches on Fridays and Mondays, and coverage of three midweek match rounds. For the first time, Sky Sports will also broadcast all 10 matches on the final day of each season.

TNT Sports has been awarded 52 live matches per season, including exclusive coverage of matches played on Saturdays at 12.30pm and coverage of two midweek match rounds.

For the first time in the UK, all matches taking place outside of the Saturday 3pm “closed period”, including those displaced to Sunday 2pm because of club participation in European competitions, will be broadcast live.

BBC Sport has been awarded highlights rights for all 380 Premier League matches each season, with additional digital rights for its online platforms.

Amazon, which shows 20 matches per season under the league’s current deal, has not secured rights in the new agreement.

Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to announce new deals with Sky Sports and TNT Sports that will extend our partnership for a further four years and see more Premier League matches than ever before shown live from 2025/26 onwards.

“As longstanding and valued partners, Sky Sports and TNT Sports are renowned for consistently delivering world-class coverage and programming. We have enjoyed record audiences and attendances in recent seasons, and we know that their continued innovation will drive more people to watch and follow the Premier League.

“We are also extremely pleased to extend our partnership with BBC Sport, which will continue to bring weekly highlights of all Premier League matches to the widest possible audience in the UK. Match of the Day has been an institution for generations of football fans in this country and remains incredibly popular with fans of all ages.”
