According to Sports Business Journal and Variety, there’s potentially big news coming regarding Disney and the NFL.
Disney has reportedly reached a “broad agreement” on a media rights agreement with the National Football League. If it goes through, we will see the Super Bowl return to the company’s ABC network for the first time in more than a decade. The last Super Bowl on ABC was the 2006 game. Plus, the tentative deal will renew ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” franchise.
According to SBJ, Disney will pay $2.6 billion annually for MNF, 30 percent higher than its current $2 billion. That is the most any broadcaster pays the NFL for the rights to televise its games. Disney’s current deal with the NFL expires at the end of 2021.
The deal between Disney and the NFL is tentative, but it’s huge news for the Walt Disney Company if it goes through.
