Sky, BT Sport Expected To Bid As Much As $11M For New SPFL Playoff Games
Published June 17, 2013
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: In Glasgow, Mark Guidi reported Scottish Second Division side Rangers "could play a number of Second Division matches on Friday nights next term." The new broadcasters, BT Sport, "will look to schedule some Gers games and SPL clashes in that slot to maximise their viewing figures." BT Sport "will take over from ESPN at the end of July" and has bought the rights to 30 live SPL matches and 10 Gers games. No other football in the U.K. "is screened on a Friday and that’s why the time slot is so appealing" (DAILY RECORD, 6/16).
MP & SILVA, SPL PARTNER: The SPL announced that MP & Silva has been appointed as the SPL's overseas broadcast partner for nine years, from '14-15 until '22-23. The package offers all of the SPL's live televised matches each season (being at least 55) (MP & Silva).
