Premier League confident over Ofcom investigation

The Premier League insists they abide by EU and UK competition law following news that Ofcom will launch an investigation into how their TV rights are sold.

A Premier League statement said: "We note that Ofcom has launched an inquiry.

"Ofcom has stated that this is at an early stage and it has not reached a view as to whether there is sufficient evidence of any infringement.

"The Premier League currently sells its audio-visual rights in a way that is compatible with UK and EU competition law and will continue to do so. We will be able to demonstrate that as part of this process."
