The television rights for Serie A in Italy are up, and there’s still no decision as to which broadcasting company the league will decide to go with for the next three seasons (2021-2024).
According to Tuttomercatoweb.com (via La Lazio News), 11 clubs have decided which company they want to hand Serie A’s broadcasting rights. The Italian media outlet reports that the clubs which are ready to hand over the rights to DAZN for Serie A are Inter, Milan, Juventus, Atalanta, Lazio, Napoli, Hellas Verona, Udinese, Fiorentina, Cagliari, and Parma. Meanwhile, the other nine clubs that didn’t vote for DAZN abstained and wanted to postpone the decision.
Sky Sports is the other option that is vying for the rights for Serie A in Italy; however, it seems the majority of the clubs prefer DAZN, which is an offer of €850-million while Sky Sports is only offering €750-million for the television rights, per Calciomercato.
Clubs have until March 29, 2021 to decide with which broadcasting company’s offer they’ll go with for the next three seasons.
