Amazon Prime Video and BT Sport have been awarded the remaining two Premier League live packages.
This concludes the sales process for all Premier League live broadcasting rights in the UK for the three seasons from 2019/20 to 2021/22.
The rights consist of 200 live matches per season split into seven packages.
In February 2018, the League announced the sale of five of the seven packages, with Sky Sports acquiring four packages, totalling 128 matches per season, and BT Sport one package, for 32 matches per season.
Today the League confirmed that package G has been acquired by BT Sport, which includes the rights to broadcast several fixtures from the split weekend, a new initiative that will create an opportunity for a mid-season player break.
