According to reports, Chelsea football club is in the frame to benefit from a massive windfall for English top-flight clubs.
Further details of the report from Financial Times claims three American TV companies CBS, ESPN and NBC are all in a tussle to win over the rights to broadcast Premier League football for a staggering $2 billion.
When completed, the U.S. television rights for about $2 billion will be a new overseas record.
Under the deal, which will be functional from the 2022-23 season until the 2027-28 season, Premier League will sell all 38 matches in a single block rather than in separate packages.
If a deal is sealed by the Premier League, this will be awesome as it will increase revenues for English clubs including Chelsea football club.
