F.A. Premier League set to swing spectacular £1billion TV deal

Richard ScudamoreLondon, Feb. 5 : A TV deal to screen top club matches worldwide is set to get a whopping one-billion- pound bonanza to F. A. Premier League clubs.

Richard Scudamore, Chief Executive of the F. A. Premier League, is ready to announce the bumper windfall shortly after publishing the figures for deal.

The current global deal is worth 645 million pounds but the next three-year agreement will dwarf that, The Sun reports.

Negotiations are not complete, with the huge markets of China and Russia still to be settled.

But Scudamore is confident that he will now deliver the landmark 1 billion pound figure.

After being shared, each of the 20 clubs will get 50 million pounds each.

Prem football is the world''s richest.

Domestic rights, taken up by Sky, ESPN and the BBC, are worth 1.8 billion pounds - making a grand total of 2.8 billion pounds. (ANI)
