" THE BIG CHANGE TO NEW EFL TV DEAL "

Sky will be able to stream all midweek Championship matches after agreeing a new £600m five-year domestic rights deal with the English Football League.


Tuesday 12th September 2017


All EFL clubs will be able to stream midweek league games via their websites if Sky are not broadcasting them live.

The contract will run from 2019-2024, with the value of the rights increasing by 36% from the present agreement.

Sky will also continue to broadcast the Carabao Cup, Checkatrade Trophy and play-offs until May 2024.

Matches played between 14:45 and 17:15 on Saturdays will continue to be blocked from live streaming.

"These negotiations came at what was an incredibly challenging period in the sale and acquisition of sports rights in the UK," said EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey.

"Having fully tested the market, we believe that not only has a significant increase in value for our clubs been achieved, but also the very best deal, with the best partner has been delivered."

The existing EFL television deal runs out at the end of the 2018-19 campaign and is worth £88.3m per season - a figure that will rise to £120m under the new terms.

A maximum of 150 EFL games will be shown per season, including 16 midweek Championship matches and a minimum of 20 League One and League Two games.

This season and next season, only overseas fans can watch live on ifollow.

But from 2019, all UK fans will be able to watch all matches that aren't 3pm Saturday matches through ifollow live.

Sky Sports will also put every EFL team's non-3pm Saturday matches on their interactive service to watch live - from 2019.

Surely it's only a matter of time before ticket prices come down...?

Bound to affect attendances, especially away from home
