How does the Premier League distribute its broadcast rights?

Live audio-visual broadcast rights are sold in three-season packages through a heavily regulated auction process.

The rights are sold on a collective basis, rather than individually by each Club.

For the three seasons 2019/20–2021/22, 200 live matches per season were split into seven packages (labelled A-G) of either 20 or 32 matches.

Each represented a specific time-slot in which matches can be broadcast.

No single broadcaster was permitted to purchase all seven.
