Facebook agrees deal to broadcast Premier League football in Thailand

Facebook agrees deal to broadcast Premier League football in Thailand

And The Times claim Facebook have now agreed their own rights deal and will begin work in the lucrative Asian market.

The three-season deal from 2019/20 to 2021/22 will see Facebook broadcast 380 games per season in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, reported The Times.

Facebook is trying to enhance its sports portfolio and bid unsuccessfully against Star India for the rights to the Indian Premier League cricket competition previous year.

It was a busy January transfer window in the Premier League as most of the top teams brought in significant reinforcements for the second half of the season.

Ant-Man And The Wasp US box office down on expectations
Top holdover markets include China ($48.7 million), Mexico ($33.8 million), Australia ($24.6 million), and Brazil ($15.4 million). The only downside with Ant-Man and the Wasp right now is Forbes pointing out that the opening weekend is rather front-loaded.

Rafa Benitez's side proved a big draw on TV last season as they fought to stay in the Premier League.

The earlier closure of the window also means foreign clubs are able to wait until the Premier League can only sell overseas before making approaches to English clubs to pick up players at a cut price - leaving them with no ability to bring in a replacement.

However, the Premier League's deal with Facebook in Asia will serve as further evidence that the league is keen to appeal to streaming services as well as traditional broadcasters.

Premier League clubs reportedly regret having voted to end the transfer window early in a World Cup year.
