Setanta looking to renegotiate FA terms

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The satellite sports broadcaster Setanta is believed to have withheld its scheduled payment of over £10 million to the Football Association, for the rights to show live FA Cup matches, which is part of a £150 million contract.

It would seem that following the loss of fifty per cent of its Premier League matches to BSkyB, the broadcaster’s plans have been put back and some revision is needed.

To this end Setanta is now looking to renegotiate the FA Cup deal that it has with the FA.

Setanta is not yet in the area where breach of contract can be applied, but things do not look good as the FA is not going renegotiate the current contract when live football is in such demand, with Sky Sports and possibly the BBC looking for more top level sports coverage.
