In 2018, EFL agreed new TV rights deal worth £595m with Sky Sports, which will run from the start of next season until May 2024, and represents a 35 per cent increase on the current arrangement.
The then-EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said: “The deal we have entered into with Sky, after fully testing the current market through our external advisors, allows our clubs the benefit of financial security which was an absolute priority for us throughout this process.
It is a partnership that, as well as having the necessary financial benefits, provides the EFL with the platform to maximise reach and exposure for its competitions, alongside providing further opportunities for clubs to monetise some of those games not broadcast on television through a DTC offering.”
