Broadcast Rights

The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is planning to float a tender for the next cycle of Asia Cup media rights in the next one month, and is looking to complete the process by July, Cricbuzz reports. 

Per the cricket platform, the ACC will be offering both a four-year and eight-year deal but the impression from the broadcasters is that eventually the parties will settle for the long term option. There will be four Asia Cups in the tender with two 50-over championships and two Twenty20 competitions.
