ITV could be hit with £20 million bill from FA


by David Allen

As there is a question of whether or not the satellite sport broadcaster Setanta will be able to survive their current crisis, there are probably a few people getting jittery in the ITV camp, as Setanta’s future is linked to ITV’s.

Should Setanta decide that keeping up their payments to the Football Association is getting too much, the commitment would fall to ITV, which could be facing a bill of around £20 million should the worse scenario happen.

This is because of a clause in ITV’s contract which states that should Setanta get into financial trouble, it would fall to ITV to show nine of the England home friendlies until 2012.

Although the cost is not exactly known the figure of £20 million is suspected as being close.
