Shrewsbury Town are happy with the EFL’s new TV deal with Sky, according to chief executive Liam Dooley.

The fixtures for the 2024/25 season will be revealed on Wednesday with EFL football expected to look different this season.

Shrews have previously played pretty much every weekend fixture on a Saturday at 3 pm with those games available to watch on iFollow.

However, the new deal sees a 60 per cent increase in revenue and will see games moved away from the regular 3 pm kick-off time with fans having to watch on a new Sky Sport Plus channel.

“From a football and a Shrewsbury Town perspective, there is an increased deal which has been well-documented,” Town’s CEO said about the new deal.
