The Premier League is the international club competition that generates the most revenue for its media rights in the United States, with about a 26-per-cent market share, reports SportBusiness.
Its current six-season deal with NBC Sports lasts from 2019-20 to 2021-22. The deal started in 2016-17, with the broadcaster paying about 50 per-cent less per season in the first three seasons. The average annual value of the six-season deal represents a 100-per-cent increase on the previous deal in the market.
Uefa club competitions are the second-most valuable international soccer club property in the market. In Uefa's current deals, Turner holds English-language rights, while Univision holds Spanish-language rights, to all competitions from 2018-19 to 2020-21.
Last year, Uefa was able to obtain 57.9-per-cent increase on the total value of the properties for the next cycle, from 2021-22 to 2023-24. CBS will hold English-language rights and Univision will retain Spanish-language rights, to all competitions.
Spain's LaLiga and Germany's Bundesliga are also extremely valuable in the US. Last year, both leagues agreed new deals. LaLiga renewed with pay-television broadcaster beIN Sport, from 2020-21 to 2023-24. Germany's Bundesliga agreed to a new deal with ESPN, from 2020-21 to 2025-26.
