Fedster posted a topic in Real World NewsSky and BT Sport have paid a record £5.136bn for live Premier League TV rights for three seasons from 2016-17. The figure represents a 70% increase on Sky and BT's current £3bn deal. It is unclear whether the increase will affect ticket prices, although Sky pundits and former England internationals Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville said the matter was an issue. The Premier League said it plans to invest £56m in grassroots projects, including 50 artificial pitches. Under the new contract, 168 games will be shown live, at an average cost of £10.2m per match. Sky paid £4.176bn for 126 matches per season, including the first Friday evening games and both Sunday packages. BT paid £960m for 42 games per season, four more than its present deal. Former Liverpool defender Carragher said: "The amounts involved in ticket pricing, especially for away fans, has to change." Neville, co-owner of Evo-Stik league side Salford City, added: "I want sensible ticket pricing and grassroots football to benefit as much as possible from this deal. Who doesn't? This is a big issue!" Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore told BBC Sport: "Clubs understand that the number one strategic priority is to keep the stadiums full. "They also need to understand that young fans must be encouraged to attend games. The clubs will do the right thing. "Our record stands for itself. Ever since the time when we invested a percentage of our income in grassroots football and the Football Foundation, that whole activity area has grown. "We will this year give away £250m. It will be over £800m over the course of this deal."

That sum has risen to £11m on average for each of their matches. Asked if the figure was obscene, Scudamore said: "It is not. It is market forces. "It is unscripted drama, the show the clubs put on. "People want to see the top stars here. Look at the excitement of transfer deadline day. "I am surprised by the size of it. Burnley are now, economically, bigger than Ajax. "This is a good deal for all the clubs in English football and all the other organisations and charities that depend on Premier League revenues." http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/31357409 £5.1 Billion!!! That is really eyewatering, in an age where everything seems to be cut, prices going up etc, for a Premier League game to be worth £10 Million quid is amazing!!!
