PCCW (Hong Kong)

Premier League rights values will increase in Thailand and Indonesia from 2022-23 onward, but have gone down in Hong Kong and Malaysia.

The English Premier League introduced several novel elements in its tender for media rights in Asia-Pacific markets for the new cycle, aimed at cracking what are expected to be some of its toughest sales territories.

A volley of rights sales this year reallocated properties formerly held by pan-regional broadcaster Fox Sports Asia and began shaping a new sports broadcasting landscape in Asia-Pacific.

The scramble to replace Fox Sports Asia helped the Football Marketing Asia agency secure a strong deal for Asian Football Confederation rights last month in several important Southeast Asia markets.
