Two British men have been arrested in Bangkok having been accused of selling online access to illegally streamed football matches.

A complaint from the Premier League to local authorities is said to have led to the arrests. The two men, named as William Lloyd and William Robinson, are accused of causing damages worth over £2.2 million to the broadcast rights holders. A third man, who is Thai, was also arrested and named as Supatra Raksasat.

Agents for the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) also seized nine computer servers, nine computers, 49 set-top boxes and three mobile phones.  The three men allegedly sold illegal broadcasts of Premier League games on the website, which is currently offline.
