The Premier League welcomes the judgment handed down by the High Court today relating to non-payment of fees by PPLive, its former broadcast partner in China.
The Premier League will robustly enforce its contractual rights when it has no other option available.
The League notes the judge’s view that PPLive had "no real prospect of success" defending the claim. The bar is high for a summary judgment application and this decision highlights the strength of the League’s case.
The League will now begin the process of recovering the fees and costs owed by PPLive.
