The Premier League’s clubs are set to lose between £300 million ($369 million) and £350 million ($433 million) in broadcast revenues even if they find a way to finish the season.
The delay of the delivery of the product with the restart at least in mid-June means broadcasters will miss their preferred slots. There is also the question of how well televised matches without fans will translate on television.
Negotiations remain ongoing between the clubs and broadcasters as they try to find a way to maximize the visibility of the league’s final 92 matches.
The hope is to spread the games over seven weekends and two midweeks.
