The English Football League has agreed to pay domestic incumbent broadcaster Sky a £7m (€7.7m/$8.7m) rebate for the 2019-20 season disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, it is reported.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the rebate will take the form of reductions to pay-television Sky’s rights fees in the last three seasons of its current five-season deal: 2021-22, 2022-23, and 2023-24. That deal, which has been the subject of controversy, began in 2019-20 and is worth £119m per season.
