Our subscribers know, love and look forward to the elite football quality, with their passionate fans, in a premium broadcast and magazine show that only Premier League and its dedicated channel can deliver.

Paul Molnar, Premier League Chief Media Officer said: “The Premier League is excited to continue our excellent partnership with Sky Pacific. They will again be an outstanding home for the Premier League over the next three seasons and we look forward to working together to showcase the League to new and existing fans throughout the Pacific.”
