BT Sport Looks To Add FA Cup Matches To Premier League Coverage
Published February 27, 2013
A LET UP FOR SCOTS: The Scotland DAILY RECORD wrote Scottish football has been "handed a boost" as BT takes over from ESPN and signs new deal to broadcast Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League matches until '17. BT made its first foray into Scottish football by agreeing a £12M ($18.2M) deal to buy ESPN’s U.K. and Ireland TV channels. SPL CEO Neil Doncaster has "welcomed the proposal and reckons it will provide some much needed financial security for our national game." Doncaster: "It means top-flight football will continue to be broadcast by Sky Sports and now BT, providing a solid financial bedrock and the best possible platform to promote the game in Scotland" (DAILY RECORD, 2/26).
