The deal also includes a new TV deal that will go into effect in 2020, which will include Fox Sports as the broadcast network for all games from 2020 through 2022.
The deal comes just two days after ESPN reported that the new agreement would generate $1,400 million in new revenue, which included the signing of a multi-year deal for $2 billion in 2018 and an additional $500 million in 2019.ESPN also announced that it had a new deal with Comcast SportsNet that will run through 2020.
It’s a $2.6 million increase from the previous year, when ESPN had an agreement with Comcast.
