BBC retains Football League rights

May 21, 2012

The BBC has signed a deal to save The Football League Show, which had faced the axe after “budget decisions” forced several Christmas editions to be dropped.

BBC Sport has struck a three-year deal with the Football League to keep the Saturday night highlights show on BBC1 for three seasons starting this summer.

The BBC will also continue to provide midweek highlights of the League Cup and dedicated shows from Wembley stadium for the finals of the League Cup and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
