Micciche: 'Serie A rights €1.4bn'

Serie A TV rights transformed

The Lega Serie A decided today to transform TV rights from the 2018-2020 seasons, forcing viewers to sign up with more than one broadcaster.

While the Premier League is at the forefront of TV rights sales and has split the games between Sky and BT Sport – now adding Amazon Prime to the mix – the situation had been different in Italy.

Sky Sport Italia currently have rights to every single Serie A match shown live, while Mediaset Premium can transmit only certain teams’ home games.

VAR stats show revolution

The introduction of VAR has seen a massive fall in the number of refereeing errors, bookings, red cards, simulation and wasted time in Serie A.

The figures were released by the FIGC and Lega Serie A after the first season of the new technology in action.

“The percentage of errors in Serie A this season was 0.89 per cent, compared to 5.78 per cent that would’ve been verified without the use of VAR.”

It was used in 397 games between Serie A and the Coppa Italia, with 2,023 checks made and 117 decisions overturned.

Private sale for TV rights

The Lega Serie A has confirmed the decision to drop Mediapro’s television rights bid and proceed to private negotiations.

On May 28, all 20 clubs voted to terminate the contract, but the Spanish broadcaster came up with some last-minute guarantees.

Those were presented at today’s meeting, but ANSA reports lawyers were unconvinced and the clubs decided to proceed to private negotiations.

Rather than putting all of the rights up for tender, the Serie A clubs will now work out a series of packages to be sold privately.

Serie A terminate Mediapro deal

The Lega Serie A have voted unanimously to terminate the contract with Mediapro, so the Serie A TV rights go back on the market.

The Spanish broker had won the bidding war for the rights in February for €1.05bn, but Sky Sport Italia won a court case to have the tender suspended for not respecting Italian antitrust regulations.

Mediapro challenge Serie A rights

Mediapro, the Spanish company that bought the television rights to Serie A, have refused to provide financial guarantees in a row with Sky Italia.

The deadline is this evening for the presentation of financial guarantees amounting to €1.2bn, but Mediapro released a statement warning they won’t provide these bonds.

‘Roma won’t be thrown out of Europe’

The Lega Serie A’s President “can rule out” Roma being banned from Europe after the behaviour of some of their fans in Liverpool.

A Liverpool fan is in hospital fighting for his life after an alleged assault with a belt, with two Italian men charged in connection with the incident.
