Due to the impact of the epidemic, the income of the Premier League clubs has plummeted, and now their biggest cake --- TV broadcast income - is also shrinking step by step.
Prior to this, the Premier League has refunded a total of 330 million pounds to the major broadcasters in the UK. According to industry insider Claire Enders, this is just the beginning. "In the past, Sky and BT Sports paid excessively high broadcast fees, and the value of BT is declining. Now broadcasters in the UK are considering continuing to reduce copyright costs. Now they are in a strong position and are able to offer lower prices. ."
在此之前，英超联赛已向英国主要广播公司退还了总计3.3亿英镑的款项。根据业内人士克莱尔·恩德斯（Claire Enders）的说法，这仅仅是开始。 “过去，Sky和BT Sports支付了过高的广播费用，而BT的价值却在下降。现在英国的广播公司正在考虑继续降低版权费用。现在，它们处于有利地位并且能够以较低的价格提供服务。 ……”。
From the 2022-23 season, the Premier League will begin to sell new five-year broadcast rights, but according to Claire Enders' assessment, the transaction price is expected to fall sharply, and the decline in broadcast revenue in the Premier League may reach 500 million pounds.
