Mediapro's Bein Sports to air Champions League until 2021

Wednesday 19 July 2017 | 15:17 CET | News
Broadcaster Mediapro has officially confirmed that its Bein Sports venture with Al-Jazeera secured the exclusive rights to air live games from the Champions League over the next three seasons. The broadcaster said the deal means Champions League games will no longer be available on free-to-air TV in Spain for the first time, with the skyrocketing costs of rights also raising the possibility that the country's telecom operators will refrain from paying the amounts involved.
