Premier League to see overseas TV rights sale rise 40%

The Premier League will again be swimming in money with a massive increase expected to be generated from overseas TV rights.

The Daily Mail says on top of the near £2billion the domestic market paid for three years of Premier League football starting next season, the in-house negotiating team are on course to bring in a further £1bn from foreign markets in an estimated 40 per cent plus increase on the current £625m over three years, despite the depressed financial climate.

With lucrative Chinese and European deals still to be signed before the overseas process is completed in January, the League are already celebrating a Middle East contract that tripled to £300m and a Singapore deal worth £230m.
