The league has reportedly asked broadcasters to submit bids for six-year periods.
The Premier League is looking at longer term international broadcast deals, according to The Athletic.
The league has reportedly asked broadcasters to submit bids for different periods, one the usual three-year cycle and another for six. This could give the bidders greater security at a time when many businesses are looking to cut costs.
The Premier League may be looking at this option after seeing a cooling rights market across Europe. It was forced to roll over its own broadcast deal with Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video, and BBC Sport on the same terms as before, and has seen Italy sell its rights to streaming platform DAZN at a lower price than before, as well as France have trouble replaceing Mediapro after it dropped out of its agreement.
Some success has already been seen with longer-term international rights deals, with Nordic Entertainment Group picking up the rights for Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden for £2 billion over six years in February 2020.
