The Sports Business Journal reported that ESPN will renew 'Monday Night Football' and ABC will return to the Super Bowl rotation. (https://bit.ly/3pYxSNF)
Disney is expected to pay an increase of up to 30% from its existing deal, which would equate to around $2.6 billion, the report said, citing sources.
"The report is incorrect and as we don't negotiate through the media, there will be no further comment," an NFL spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, an ESPN spokesperson declined to comment.
