IMG extends Premier League partnership

By iSportconnect | June 20, 2016

IMG and the Premier League have extended their relationship – and will continue to run Premier League Productions (PLP).

PLP produces and distributes all the Premier League’s international programming. This includes the broadcasting of all 380 Premier League matches, seven magazine shows each week, and the 24/7 Premier League content service, run by some of the League’s broadcast partners as a full channel.

The deal with IMG, and the creation of PLP, is one of the main reasons why the Premier League has been so dominant oversees. The high production values, handled in-house by IMG at their purpose built studios, has lifted the Premier League brand to new heights in the last 12 years. 

Under the new agreement a number of new programmes will be broadcast via the Premier League content service, including “Goal Rush” and a Fantasy programme which will provide in-depth analysis of the League’s Fantasy Premier League game.

There will also be an extension to the clips channel, which provides pre-match and in-game clips of all major incidents.
