The Premier League is pleased to announce ESPN has won the exclusive rights to broadcast the competition in Brazil for the three seasons 2019/20 to 2021/22.

One season into the current three-year cycle, the new deal will see ESPN Brazil hosting Premier League football on their channels for at least the next five seasons.

"ESPN has done a fantastic job broadcasting the Premier League in Brazil for the last 15 seasons and we are very pleased they have again chosen to invest in our broadcasting rights," Premier League Executive Chairman Richard Scudamore said.

"They have a track record of delivering first-rate production and expert analysis that have driven interest in Premier League clubs, and in the competition.

"We look forward to working with them for the next five seasons to make the best Premier League action available to football fans across the country."

German Hartenstein, General Manager of ESPN Brazil, said: "ESPN is extremely proud to announce its new agreement with the Premier League and, by extending the existing agreement, thrilled to be able to bring it to Brazilian fans for the next five years.

"ESPN Brazil began airing Premier League matches 15 years ago and I am sure that, with this new agreement, we will continue to become even stronger, showcasing some of the world’s most competitive football and top stars with best-in-class production and journalistic values."

Several Brazilian players starred in the 2016/17 Premier League season.

David Luiz and Willian helped Chelsea win the title, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino starred for Liverpool, while Gabriel Jesus, pictured top, made a big impact after his debut for Manchester City in January.
