SFL to Tender Rangers Division 3 TV Rights

By Community | July 20, 2012

The Scottish Football League (SFL) are looking to sell the tv rights for 25 Division 3 games, involving Rangers.

The SFL’s media representative IMG, has approached broadcasters with a package to show up to 25 live Rangers matches in Division Three next season. The proposed deal includes the opportunity to broadcast all 18 of Rangers’ away league matches. 

However, any deal cannot be finalised until the Scottish FA grants membership to the new club. Rangers went into Administration in February, and in the process of Liquidation at the moment. Charles Green’s Consortium are setting up a new company (Newco) after the HMRC failed to grant a company voluntary arrangement (CVA).

The SFA want Rangers word they can clear all footballing debts, plus take the punishment from their old company to have a twelve month transfer embargo.

The proposed SFL TV deal subject to certain criteria, including fixture and scheduling clashes as well as policing. The new league season less than three weeks away so all parties want something settled fairly quickly.
