Premier League rights auction imminent

The first domestic bids for the English Premier League football auction are scheduled to be tabled on February 8th, according to a report from equity analysts at Berenberg Bank. The bids will cover various options covering three seasons from 2019-2020. The bank is interested because of the potential impact the costs will have on Sky’s 2020 financial year (to June that year) and a similar cost to rivals BT Sport.
