Glazer-controlled Manchester United expects to miss out on $24 million

The English Premier League will have to make refunds to broadcasters even if the pandemic-disrupted season is completed.

Manchester United says it believes it will miss out on $24 million because the English Premier League will have to make refunds to broadcasters even if the pandemic-disrupted season is completed.

Manchester United is controlled by the Glazer family, which also owns the Bucs.

The league is in talks with its rights holders about rebates because of delays and changes to the broadcasting schedule. The season was suspended in March.

Empty stadiums will also change the TV product.

The rebates will vary based on the final position in the standings and the number of games aired live. United is in fifth place with nine games remaining.

The Premier League hasn't provided details of the broadcasting rebate.
