Football League secures deal with BSkyB

The English Football League has reportedly signed a deal with pay TV broadcaster BSkyB that will see it earn up to £65 million (€74 million) a year for the three seasons from 2012-13.

The deal, giving Sky the rights to 75 live Football League matches and the Carling Cup, means that the organization, which represents non-Premier League clubs, will see a reduction in income of about £23 million a year. Public broadcaster the BBC reportedly declined to pace a bid for any of the matches. Under the current deal it has the right to show 10 live Championship matches a year and the Carling Cup final.
