Investigation into how rights are sold

icon tv12 December ~ Ofcom have recently announced an investigation into how Premier League broadcast rights are sold, and will be including the Football Supporters’ Federation in the process. This consultation with the FSF will particularly focus on the scheduling of live matches, and they are keen to hear fans’ views on the subject. Showing games on TV between 2.35pm and 5.15pm on a Saturday is currently banned by the FA, yet 106 matches were played outside that period and not broadcast live over 2013-14 and the current season. You can read Ofcom’s full letter and have your say on it here.
