English Premier League

The English Premier League has sought to temporarily lift the 3pm blackout to allow next month’s match between Manchester City and Leeds United to be shown live domestically.

The English Premier League will take its domestic media rights to market this year but is unlikely to support a challenge to the 3pm blackout rule, its chief executive Richard Masters has said.

The global value of sports media rights reached $55.07bn (€52.37bn) this year and will break the $60bn barrier in 2024 as high-profile deals, including the new National Football League and Indian Premier League domestic rights contracts, take full effect.
