Premier League deadline for German-speaking Europe

The English Premier League has today (October 1) received offers for its rights in German-speaking territories in Europe, with the bid deadline (between 10am and 12pm GMT) having now passed.

Bids for rights for three seasons, from 2019-20 to 2021-22, could be made in three broadcast territories:

  1. Germany and Austria together with Luxembourg
  2. Switzerland together with Liechtenstein
  3. Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein together with Switzerland and Luxembourg.

The Premier League will not consider any offer from a rights agency or intermediary. Any bidder which bids for ‘broadcast territory 3’ is required to make a separate individual bid for at least ‘1’ or ‘2’.

Premier League rights across the markets are currently held by digital media company DAZN Group, in a three-season deal, from 2016-17 to 2018-19.
