Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 09:51 CET | News
Sky Italia has confirmed that a Milan court has accepted its urgent request for a suspension of the auction of rights to air matches from the top-tier Serie A fo¬otball league launched by Spain's Mediapro until 04 May. The Spanish broadcaster and sports rights broker was awarded the rights for the 2018-2021 seasons in February after outbidding Mediaset and Sky with an offer of EUR 1.05 billion a year. Mediapro's resulting tender for the rights initially had a deadline of 21 April but Sky requested a suspension to check whether it respected Italian laws.
