England’s Premier League stated on Thursday its shareholders had unanimously agreed to a broadcast deal in China for the 2020-21 season with digital media platform Tencent.
Financial phrases weren’t given for the deal, which replaces a $700 million contract with PPTV, owned by Chinese retail group Suning, which ended this month.
The league confirmed that viewers in China will be capable to watch all 372 remaining league matches on Tencent’s streaming and information platforms.
Tencent will broadcast half of all of the matches accessible at no cost in China, with the remaining fixtures accessible through a membership service.
“We are excited to have agreed this partnership with Tencent ensuring our supporters in China can enjoy following Premier League action throughout this season,” Premier League chief government Richard Masters stated.
“We and our clubs have an extremely passionate fanbase in China and are looking forward to working with the team at Tencent to engage with fans in new ways over the coming season.”
