Football broadcasting business in the EU: towards fairer competition?

Sara Moya Izquierdo and Miguel Troncoso Ferrer, Gomez-Acebo & Pombo Abogados, S.L.P. ask Football broadcasting business in the EU: towards fairer competition?

ABSTRACT: Broadcasting of major football events is now one of the most profitable businesses related to sports, and the number of Competition law cases related thereto has increased in recent years. European competition authorities have shaped the regulatory framework under which football broadcasting rights are negotiated, modifying the landscape of the market of media rights for top competitions. Nevertheless, recent European Court judgments seem to open the door to new market definitions, which are expected to continue changing during the coming decade, mainly due to developments in technology and consumer preferences. This new landscape will have a direct impact on the terms and conditions to be negotiated between holders of the rights (football clubs and/or federations) and broadcasters.
