Benfica seeks review of TV rights contract with Nos

Wednesday 30 November 2016 | 11:05 CET | News
Portuguese football club Benfica is seeking a review of its existing TV rights contract with telecommunications operator Nos, in order to take into account the amounts agreed with rival club Sporting, reports Jornal de Negocios. Benfica believes that the contract signed between Nos and Sporting values the TV rights more. For its part, Nos points out that these are two different agreements and suggested setting up an independent commission. Benfica last year signed a EUR 400 milion contract with Nos, while the contract with Sporting is worth EUR 515 million.
