Charlotte Moore, director of BBC Content, said: "To secure the Premier League highlights for another three years is fantastic news for football fans all over the United Kingdom and ensures the BBC remains the free-to-air home with the iconic Match of the Day at the heart of all the action". Rights include Match of the Day 2, Football Focus and The Premier League Show.

The BBC announces that its deal to show Premier League highlights has been extended by three years until at least the 2021-22 season.

Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport, said the deal was testament to the show's "continued success and popularity".

'Our longstanding partnership with the Premier League continues to flourish and evolve as seen with the recently launched Super Movers initiative.

'The new deal strengthens that relationship even further and ensures the nation's favourite sport will continue to be seen by the widest possible audience'.

Now presented by Gary Lineker, Match of the Day also boasts a panel of pundits including all-time Premier League top goalscorer Alan Shearer and former Arsenal striker Ian Wright.

The 2019-2022 rights will cost the BBC £211.5 million, slightly more than the £204 million it paid three years ago, though indicating a fall in value of the highlights once inflation is taken into account. "Great news", Lineker, who once presented in his underwear after his former club Leicester won the Premier League, tweeted.
