Super League agree new 2 year deal with Sky Sports

Super League have announced that they have agreed a new 2 year broadcast deal with Sky Sports for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

Sky Sports will show 66 live games per season, including the Magic Weekend, play-offs and the showpiece Grand Final.

The new deal gives the broadcaster first pick of games during the regular season as well as the play-offs.

"Our partnership has seen record viewing figures in recently," said the league's executive chairman Ken Davy.

"We've worked closely throughout the current pandemic and every step of the way Sky have been immensely supportive.

"Together we have managed to give fans an exceptional amount of coverage during these unpre­ced­ented times."

The agreement will see Sky, who have held television rights to the competition since it started in 1996, extend their partnership to 28 years.

Part of the new deal will also see Sky make some of this season's fixtures available via the broadcaster's free-to-air platforms.
