Mr Justice Fraser, sitting in the High Court has ruled that PPLive Sports International, a broadcaster based in Hong Kong must pay more than £150m to the Premier League.
PPLive signed a deal with the Premier League to show both live and delayed football matches and game highlights across China. The deal was set to run for three seasons starting in 2019, however, the Premier League terminated the agreement in September 2020 and said they were owed two instalments from PPLive that totalled nearly £157m.
The Judge said that the Premier League was entitled to a “summary judgement” i.e- one without a trial because PPLive had “no real prospect” of defending the claim.
He added that “none of the defences advanced” had anything other than ”fanciful prospects of success”.
