League calls for second administrator at ITV Digital

The Football League has demanded a second administrator be appointed at ITV Digital, the collapsed pay-TV broadcaster, alleging a conflict of interest at Deloitte & Touche.

In a letter to the firm, the Football League insisted the move was essential because Deloitte acted as auditor and adviser to a number of football clubs that will be directly affected if ITV Digital failed to pay up the money it owes for the right to broadcast Football League matches.

Deloitte was brought in as administrator to ITV Digital last week after co-owners Carlton and Granada pulled the plug on the loss making venture.

But a spokesperson from Deloitte said: ‘We are confident there is no conflict. We wouldn’t have taken on the work if there was a problem.’
