Key Highlights

The Premier League has agreed to roll over its existing contracts with domestic broadcasters for the upcoming rights cycle from 2022 to 2025 in what is perceived to be a defensive move from the league in a depreciating sports rights market, whereby premium soccer league's such as the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 have all faced declines in the value of their domestic TV rights.

Premier League clubs are estimated to earn over $1.5 billion in sponsorship revenue throughout the course of the 2021/22 campaign, signalling a bounce back of the league's sponsorship market post COVID-19. However, the direction of sponsorship spend on Premier League clubs is highly unequal, with over 80 per cent channelled towards the Big Six, who generate over four times as much value through their commercial partnership deals than the remaining 14 Premier League clubs combined.
