The Premier League has today made available to interested parties the Invitation to Tender (ITT) for its UK Live audio visual rights spanning seasons 2013/14-2015/16.
The ITT describes the packages of rights the Premier League are now inviting bids for:
The Live rights consist of five packages of 26 matches and two packages of 12 matches. No single buyer will be allowed to acquire more than 116 matches.
This creates a more attractive and compelling offering for both broadcasters and fans; whilst allowing the continued protection of the Saturday 3pm 'closed window' and minimising further displacement of Premier League fixtures.
A separate sales process will be conducted for the other packages described in the ITT:
Both the Live and "Near Live" packages will be available for exploitation on a technology neutral basis.
