NEW YORK (AP) - English Premier League games will no longer air on Fox’s networks in the United States after this season.

Fox Sports Media Group said in a statement Friday that the EPL informed the company it would not be accepting its bid. Fox Soccer had been the primary U.S. outlet for the Premier League for almost two decades.

Fox sublicensed some of its games to ESPN.

Fox still owns rights for UEFA’s Champions League and Europa League among other international events and will broadcast men’s and women’s World Cups from 2015-22.

The Premier League could move to NBC’s networks, which made a deal for Major League Soccer last year.
