The Premier League have agreed a new six-year deal with NBC worth more than $2.6bn for the competition's US television rights.

The deal is worth roughly double the previous deal struck by NBC back in 2015, making it the largest overseas rights deal ever signed by the Premier League.

Along with the new bumper deal in the US, the league's current deal in the United Kingdom - which runs until 2025 - is worth a fairly insane $7bn.

A statement from the Premier League read: "The Premier League and NBCUniversal, via the NBC Sports Group, have today announced a new six-year broadcast deal in the United States.

"The agreement, which will see NBC Sports remain the Premier League's official broadcast partner in the US until 2028, will cover all 380 matches ever season The deal also includes the exclusive rights for Spanish language coverage."

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters added: "We are delighted to announce our new US broadcast deal with NBC Sports, who have been brilliant partners for the Premier League over the last nine seasons. NBC Sports has significantly strengthened the popularity of the league in the United States in that time through its fantastic coverage and promotion.

"NBC Sports' Premier League Mornings programming is now a real institution among supporters in America, with fans getting up early to come together to cheer on their favourite club, week in, week out.

"It's an exciting time for football in the US and we look forward to continuing to work with NBC Sports to bring our competition to even more fans over the next six years."
