ESPN commits to SPL TV deal

Published Add your comment

ESPN has confirmed their continued coverage of Scottish football, following Sky Sports in agreeing a five-year contract.

ESPN will screen 30 Clydesdale Bank Premier League games and 10 Rangers games from the Irn-Bru Third Division, including three from Ibrox.

The SPL's television deal had been in doubt following the financial collapse of Rangers and the decision to vote the Ibrox newco into the Third Division, but chief executive Neil Doncaster and a steering group have safeguarded most of the revenue. ESPN's coverage begins on Sunday with Dundee United's season opener against Hibernian.
