The BBC has extended its Premier League TV highlights deal for further three years, securing its status as the competition’s free-to-air home until at least 2021/22.
As well as Match Of The Day, the new deal covers MOTD2, Football Focus, plus midweek magazine show The Premier League Show.
Barbara Slater, Director, BBC Sport, says: “To keep Premier League highlights on the BBC is testament to the continued success and popularity of Match Of The Day.
“Our longstanding partnership with the Premier League continues to flourish and evolve as seen with the recently launched Super Movers initiative.
“The new deal strengthens that relationship even further and ensures the nation’s favourite sport will continue to be seen by the widest possible audience.”
Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content, says: “To secure the Premier League highlights for another three years is fantastic news for football fans all over the UK and ensures the BBC remains the free to air home with the iconic Match of the Day at the heart of all the action.”
