5 of the 7 packages for the rights to show Premier League games from 2019-2022 have been sold for £4.464bn.

Sky Sports have won the rights to four packages - 128 live matches - while BT Sport have one, comprising 32 games.

The Premier League's last deal, agreed in 2015 and running until 2019, was worth £5.14bn.

"To have achieved this investment with two packages remaining to sell is testament to the excellent football competition delivered by the clubs," executive chairman Richard Scudamore said.

Sky will have first choice of every weekend match and will also show Saturday night fixtures (19:45) for the first time.

BT will show Saturday lunchtime fixtures from August 2019 and have said they will pay £295m per season - £9.22m per match, up from £7.6m - across the three years. That means Sky have committed to £3.579bn - or £9.3m per game, down from £10.8m in the current deal.
