Mediapro excluded from Serie A auction despite presenting guarantee

Wednesday 6 June 2018 | 13:57 CET | News
Italy's Serie A football league has definitively excluded Spanish broadcaster and sports rights broker Mediapro from bidding for the rights to air matches from the country's top-tier league from 2018 to 2021, reports Expansion, citing Serie A president Gaetano Micciche. Mediapro won the bidding war for the rights in February for EUR 1.05 billion a year and it finally presented a EUR 1.6 billion guarantee to comply with Serie A's requirements but the league still vetoed the contract to broadcast nearly 400 matches over the 2018-21 seasons.
