TRANMERE fans could soon get the opportunity to watch their side on terrestrial television after ITV opened talks with rights holder Sky over the screening of Football League and Carabao Cup games.

The PA news agency has said EFL clubs will be given the chance to vote on a proposal for the broadcaster to screen around 20 league and cup fixtures next season.

Sky has agreed a contract with the EFL worth £935m which runs until the end of the 2028-29 season and under which more than 1,000 matches will be shown live.

But it is understood it has been in discussions with ITV over a deal which could see it recoup a small proportion of that with reports suggesting the junior partner could pay around £15m for its share of games, which would be broadcast simultaneously.

Clubs have already been contacted and could be asked for their views as early as next week.

The BBC announced a similar agreement with TNT Sports to screen 14 FA Cup matches a season free-to-air over a four-year period from 2025-26.
