The EFL has today issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for interested parties in respect of its broadcast rights.
The broadcast rights will be available from the beginning of season 2024/25 when the current five-year agreement with Sky Sports expires.
Rights for all 1,891 matches across the League, EFL Cup, EFL Trophy and all end-of-season Play-Off matches are available for prospective bidders.
The League is taking a fresh and new approach to this latest rights cycle, inviting proposals that embrace innovation and offer contemporary solutions that cater to changing audience habits.
EFL Chief Commercial Officer, Ben Wright said: “With 54% of the UK population watching EFL football on television each year and a global audience of more than 400 million, it’s an exciting time to be going to market for the League’s broadcast rights.
“Whilst the appetite for EFL football remains stronger than ever, we want to grow this audience further. We are inviting proposals from organisations that can enhance and develop the League’s offering, taking a new and innovative approach to how people consume EFL content. Alongside the EFL’s rich tradition and distinguished history, there is a desire to evolve, grow and innovate in order to grow our audience further and we’re looking for a partner or partners who share that vision.”
Bidders must submit responses by 5pm on 21 November 2022.
