The organising body of Italy's top-tier football league has approved a request from sports streaming service DAZN to sublicence a package of rights to air Serie A games in public places to pay-TV broadcaster Sky Italia, reports Corriere dello Sport. Lega Serie A said the league's 20 clubs welcomed the offer but cautioned that Sky will still need the backing of antitrust and competition authority AGCM as well as communications regulator Agcom to exploit the rights of package 1 games on a non-exclusive basis.
