Court upholds Sky appeal against Mediapro's Serie A rights bid

Thursday 10 May 2018 | 08:58 CET | News
A Milan court has proceeded to accept Sky Italia's appeal against Spanish broadcaster Mediapro's tender for rights to air matches from the top-tier Serie A football league. 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. However, the court has now ruled that the tender infringed antitrust rules, reports Reuters, citing a judicial source, with Mediapro given 15 days to lodge an appeal.
