BT Sport to show live Conference football
July 3, 2013
BT Sport has agreed a two-year deal with The Football Conference lower league to show 30 live matches a season from the Conference Premier on its new sports channels.
BT Sport will host live broadcasts from the grounds for 25 league matches, plus both legs of the play-off semis and the Promotion Final at Wembley, from the start of the 2013-14 season in August.
The deal will bring live football from the 5th tier, immediately below League Two, to a much wider audience than ever before, which will enable greater opportunities for marketing and sponsorship deals.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “We are delighted that we’ve been able to invest in the Non-League game and play our part in helping community clubs to flourish.
