Footall League Chairman, Greg Clarke, said of the extended deal:

'We place huge value on the commitment Sky has made to our competitions and our clubs over many seasons and we are delighted that they wish to extend our relationship in this way. Supporters will also welcome this news given the outstanding breadth of coverage delivered. The Football League is focused on delivering sustainability to our member clubs and this agreement will help us achieve that aim.'

Managing Director of Sky Sports, Barney Francis, added:

'This agreement offers Sky Sports viewers more matches, more choice and more drama from all 72 clubs across The Football League. We are proud of our partnership with The Football League and can look forward to even more dram and excitement from its competitions for another five seasons.'
