SPL and Sky agree broadcasting deal
Sky Sports have reached agreement with the Scottish Premier League to continue their coverage of Scottish football for at least another five years. As part of the deal, 30 live matches will be shown per season, including five live Rangers fixtures from the Scottish Football League.
The new deal is subject to ratification by the SPL clubs on Friday.
Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports said: "We've supported Scottish football since we started, over 20 years ago, and have always wanted to continue that commitment.
"Our viewers will see the SPL for five more years and our schedule includes the opening league match for Celtic.
"We will also follow Rangers as they plot their way back to Scottish football's top flight.
"Clubs now have certainty over their income and exposure across the UK and Ireland and we look forward to the new season."
