Super League and Sky reach TV revenue agreement

Super League, The RFL and Sky Sports have reached agreement over clubs’ 2020 TV revenues.

The deal recognises the huge disruption to this season’s fixture calendar and the significant impact it has had on broadcasting schedules, and enables the sport to plan to the end of the 2021 season with greater financial certainty.

The agreement is subject to rugby league resuming when government and public health advice allows.

Super League chairman Robert Elstone said: “Rugby League’s 25-year relationship with Sky Sports has been built on a genuine partnership that has never been more evident than during the COVID-19 crisis.

“We are pleased to have reached an agreement which acknowledges the disruption to Sky Sports’ Super League schedules but gives our clubs greater financial certainty moving forward in these challenging times.

“Our resilience will continue to be tested – but we are grateful to Sky for their ongoing support.”
