Will be interesting to see where Seria A ends up. For me personally these European leagues are nothing but filler. Eleven Sports threw tons of cash at these leagues a few years ago only to learn Brits don't want to watch continental football via stream. Pretty much killed the companies UK ambitions stone dead within 6 months.

Can't see Sky or BT bidding. Premier Sports might try to renew on the cheap. Smells like something Amazon will pick up for little cost due to lack of interest from the conventional broadcasters. Gives them something to chirp about. Another "Victory" for the streamers.
Interesting! i wonder who will get Serie A. I'd love it if Sky Sports got it. Premier Sports splashing out on Gary Lineker whilst losing half their main tv rights seems a bit....bonkers

I'm not sure where the Portuguese, dutch or belgium or MLS are these days.
I know the russian league is on Bet365 haha
You can see the Russian League live on YouTube Vince.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

This is quite a good starting point before checking with the individual channels' websites. Would benefit from links to lengths of broadcasting contracts.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Gary Lineker is doing Spanish football, and, although he will be seen on Premier's channels, that is because they take the League's feed that will include him.

He won't be seen on any other Premier coverage, and isn't working directly for them.

A real test as to whether La Liga was genuinely popular or could Sky replicate that success by using SSN as a 24/7 linear broadcast advert as they do for the rest of their sports output. Iíve suspected for some time they could very easily. The proof is in the pudding as they say.

Outdated 3pm blackout - how so?

If you want The country's football clubs to lose out on supporters who choose to sit at home and watch foreign football on a Saturday afternoon then that's likely to see a number of clubs go to the wall.

There again how many people actually watch foreign football outside of the odd big match (such as Barcelona v Real Madrid).

I watched a lot of Bundesliga football last year, due to a combination of being on Furlough and no Premier League/ Premiership Rugby being on.

Otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.

The way the rights move around suggest I'm not the only one.

I doubt very much genuine supporters will miss their clubs home game to watch a foreign football match. I think the only ones watching will be the likes of me who never attend a football match due to the cost of getting there and match day ticket.

Agree same with rugby never stay home if Cardiff are playing home or away , to watch any other team. Always can record and avoid news if really want to see a game

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

It’s literally a restriction on the ability to trade.

It’d be laughable if cinemas got to say there were windows that television channels/streaming services couldn’t show any movies to encourage people to go.

It is, but you know how jfman tries to twist everything.

However I do agree with him that it is a practice that should cease. Football fans are always going to turn out to watch their team play.

Itís a restriction on trade. It takes no twisting from me for that to be a fact. Capitalist enterprises (and indeed the leagueís collective bargaining constitutes a cartel) preventing others from broadcasting games so they get more customers at the turnstiles and push up the value per game of televised fixtures.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

I remember games were played 3pm on a Saturday, now they're played at stupid times any day of the week in order to satisfy the whims of Sky BT etc.

Yes they pay £millions for the coverage rights, but it's created further greed and corruption within football at the higher levels.
