Soccer-Serie A postpones vote over Sky's bid for minor TV rights package

Wed 5th May, 2021 8:10pm
MILAN, May 5 (Reuters) - Serie A clubs agreed on Wednesday
to postpone until next week a vote on pay TV operator Sky's bid
for screening three out of 10 games on a non-exclusive basis,
Italian soccer's top league said in a statement.
   The postponement comes after Sky, owned by U.S. group
Comcast, requested a judge to block the sale of Serie A's main
domestic rights package to sport streaming service DAZN, saying
the process was not compliant with Italian laws aimed at
protecting competition.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2MF3G4
    A decision on the case is expected in a few days, a legal
source familiar with the matter said after a closed door hearing
on Wednesday.
    In March, Serie A awarded DAZN the rights to screen all
Serie A matches for 2.5 billion euros in the 2021-24 period in
Italy, including exclusive rights for seven out of 10 games per
matchday  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2LO16P
    Sky's proposal was broadly in line with a previous offer
which was rejected by Serie A, worth some 263 million euros, two
sources with knowledge of the matter said.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2LR5DD
    Under the current three-year agreement, expiring in June,
Serie A raised about 2.9 billion euros from Sky and DAZN, with
Sky holding the lion's share of the rights.
