Tom Watson comments on Premier League TV rights auction

Tom Watson MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on the Premier League TV rights auction, said:

“The enormous sums paid for these TV rights is another reminder of the gulf between the income of Premier League clubs and the poor provision for grassroots football that top clubs rely on for talent development.

“Labour’s manifesto committed to ensuring that top flight football supports the grassroots and we restate that commitment today.”
