A U.K. high court Tuesday awarded England’s Premier League $213 million from Chinese broadcaster PPLive Sports International Ltd. in disputed payments for the rights to show the soccer league’s live matches after the pandemic forced a suspension of play in 2020.

PPLive, a subsidiary of e-commerce giant Suning Holdings Group, was sued by the league in October 2020 for skipping the rights payment. The league said Wednesday that it will now begin the process of recovering the funds from PPLive.
