Premier League cancels broadcast deal with Russia due to Ukraine invasion

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Premier League has stopped its broadcast agreement with the nation. The decision will take effect immediately, which means that none of Thursday’s four matches will be broadcast in the United States.

It took only 15 minutes of a four-hour conference in London on Tuesday for all 20 teams to agree on the topic. The English Premier League has also announced a £1 million donation to help the people of Ukraine.

The Rambler Group owns the Premier League’s television rights. The business was nearing the end of a three-year contract to broadcast events in Russia. The Football Association has also discontinued its agreement with Russia in a separate step. As a result, none of the FA Cup quarter-final matches scheduled for this month will be broadcast.
