ESPN, College Football Playoff Agree to Six-Year Contract Extension

ESPN

ESPN and the College Football Playoff (CFP) have reached an agreement on a six-year contract extension for a reported $7.8 billion that will see ESPN continue to televise the playoff for another six seasons, according to The Athletic.

ESPN’s original contract went through the 2025-2025-2026 season.

It’s a critical time for a deal, and tips the hat as to what content may be coming on the live sports streaming platform that ESPN will be teaming up with Warner Bros. Discovery and FOX in a deal that was announced last week.

Next year’s CFP (2024-2025) will feature 12 teams for the very first time, as the first 10 versions of the CFP have featured only 4 teams with 3 postseason games per year. ESPN will be paying more money for the 12-team playoff because the expanded format will feature 11 games.

Additionally, the new deal allows the network to be able to sublicense games to other networks if it so chooses.

While the deal is agreed to, the College Football Playoff leaders must settle other issues that come from the dissolution of the Pac-12 before this deal can be officially ratified.
