It’s claimed that the next English Premier League deal could see the amount of money trebled, with other big hitters such as Google competing with BT Sport and driving the price up to an astonishing degree.
The near £1billion bid is said to have stunned the Sky/ITV combination and paves the way for BT Sport to follow it up with a determined bid for the lion’s share of the Premier League coverage when the next deal is struck.
Since the enforced sharing of the broadcasting deal to ensure no one company has a monopoly, minority partners such as Setanta have shown no signs of ever being able to use their initial involvement as a means of growing long-term.
This Mr Ashley, represents a massive marketing opportunity for our beloved NUFC in Australia and Asia. I believe that you obviously want to sell our club as seen by your lack of investment in our team during the close season.
Actually that is incorrect, it would have cost you £152 because shockingly, our club charges its own fans a £1 surcharge on every away ticket they buy! So that would be £76 each to support Newcastle at one match.
