ESPN go for FA Cup broadcasting rights

ESPN are poised to rescue the FA from financial crisis by buying television rights to the FA Cup, reports the Daily Mail.

ESPN regard the FA Cup as a potential complement to the Premier League rights they snapped up after Setanta defaulted on their contract.
