BBPA comments on new Sky prices package for pubs


BBPA comments on new Sky prices package for pubs.

Commenting on today’s announcement by Sky on prices for pubs in the coming year, Brigid Simmonds, BBPA Chief Executive said:

“A price freeze is good news as Sky charges are certainly a significant cost for pubs, which are a real focus for enjoying live sports in a great atmosphere.

”I am pleased Sky have specifically acknowledged the financial pressures pubs are under. It is also good news that we are seeing more competition over live sport in pubs, which should help to keep prices down in future.”

Notes to editors:

The British Beer & Pub Association is the UK’s leading organisation representing the brewing and pub sector. Its members account for 96 per cent of the beer brewed in the UK and around half of Britain’s 50,000 pubs.
