Mediapro, Spanish football teams hit by EUR 15 mln fine

Monday 2 December 2013 | 19:59 CET | News
The Spanish regulator CNMC has ordered broadcaster Mediapro and four leading football teams to pay fines totalling EUR 15 million for serious breaches connected to the sale of TV rights. Mediapro was ordered to pay EUR 6.6 million, Real Madrid EUR 3.9 million, Barcelona EUR 3.6 million, Seville EUR 900,000 and Real Santander EUR 30,000. The fines were imposed because the broadcaster and the four clubs had agreed four-year contracts for TV rights, a year longer than the three years allowed.
