League faces Deloitte in court today

The Football League will face Deloitte & Touche in the High Court today in its continuing dispute over money owed to the League following the collapse of ITV Digital.

The League is owed £178.5m for the remaining two years of its contract with ITV Digital, who won the rights to broadcast league matches following a bid of £315m.

Deloitte’s Nick Dargan, administrator of ITV Digital, will report today in the High Court on the possibility of a settlement – if he is unable to offer hope of an agreement, it is likely ITV Digital will be liquidated.

The Football League is reportedly threatening to sue Carlton Communications and Granada, parent companies of the pay-tv broadcaster, for more than £500m if the administrators put ITV digital into liquidation – the League is seeking to discover how much the executives of the two media giants knew about the bidding for the media rights to matches in 2000.
