Report: Amazon Seen As Frontrunner For NFL Sunday Ticket

By Adam Roberts – 9/10/2021

It can be tough to keep up with all the shifting around in sports television deals that seems to change the landscape every few years or so. Now a new report says Amazon is apparently the leading candidate to get NFL Sunday Ticket.

That’s according to CNBC, as the question of who will get the popular football package heats up. DirectTV currently has the rights to it and the deal is up after the 2022-23 season. If NFL Sunday Ticket goes to Amazon, it would be the latest big development for the e-commerce giant when it comes to NFL rights.

The Seattle-based company is already getting exclusive rights to Thursday Night Football games next year.
