Mediapro prevails in Copa del Rey rights case

Thursday 13 January 2022 | 16:01 CET | News
Spanish broadcaster and sports rights broker Mediapro said it has won a complaint lodged against the the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) over the bidding process for rights to air the domestic cup competition Copa del Rey. In a judgment, Madrid's Commercial Court No. 3 ordered the RFEF to compensation to Mediapro for damages after it breached EU competition law when it excluded the company from the award of domestic and international broadcast rights to the Copa del Rey from 2019 to 2022.
