Soccer clubs in England and Scotland are expected to hold a special meeting on Sunday to discuss the potential of a new Premier League television deal.
The English Premier League (EPL) is set to become the first fully digital league in the world, after the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) and the European Commission announced that the next phase of the deal, which will see the league join the Premier League and other English football leagues across Europe, will be rolled out in 2019.
The EPL’s future is uncertain after it was taken over by the EPL owners at the end of last season, and a deal has not been agreed.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not possible that the new agreement could be reached.
The FAI have been in talks with the league to see if they could form a new commercial body and potentially negotiate a new TV deal.
According to a report in the Sunday Times, a meeting between the FAI and the Premier Leagues governing body, the Football League, is being planned for Sunday.
In the wake of the FA’s decision to sell the league, the FA I told you so, we will continue to fight for fairness and for the integrity of football in England.
It’s not only about money, it’s also about fairness.
The FAI told us so.
The Premier League is now committed to delivering the best possible deal for the clubs involved.
In an interview with The Sunday Times on Monday, the club’s chief executive, Alex Inglesby, said he hoped the FA would accept the club and the league’s proposals.
“If it does go ahead and we have a deal we feel that the best thing for the Premier leagues is to sit down and try to come to an agreement, and to see how we can improve it,” Inglesbough told The Times.
“That’s what we’re working on.”
The FA has indicated that they would not be interested in a new deal until the governing body has agreed a new television deal, and the EPPs proposed new deal is likely to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
However, the Premier and EPL are also expected to discuss new television deals with the Premier league.
The two leagues are currently the only two in the Premier division, with the EFL and the League Two having a combined TV rights deal worth £3.5 billion.
