The Premier League saw turnover drop by nine per cent and there was a reduction in payments to clubs in the fall-out from the Covid-19 pandemic, accounts for 2019-20 have revealed.
The figures up to July 31, 2020 were published at Companies House on Thursday.
The period covered is for the first of a three-year cycle of broadcasting and other commercial rights contracts.
The company’s strategic report noted underlying turnover had fallen by nine per cent which was “largely due to the rebates payable to broadcasters following a suspension of play during the season” because of the coronavirus pandemic. (Sky)
