Silvio Berlusconi’s Mediaset has won the rights to show all 64 matches of next summer’s World Cup on Italian television.
In what is a historic coup, Mediaset has beaten state broadcaster Rai to World Cup rights for the first time ever.
The station will exclusively show all 64 matches of the tournament, from the opening match to the Final, free of charge.
Russia 2018, of course, will not be contested by Italy after they failed to qualify.
