To seek qualification for the Europa League Conference, Nice moves on Thursday on the lawn of Maccabi Tel-Aviv (7 p.m.) for the one-way play-offs. But the day before the match, no broadcaster in France is announced. This Wednesday, the Nice club published a press release explaining the situation.
” In the Europa Conference League play-offs, the match broadcasting rights belong to the host club. “, explains the press release. ” OGC Nice thus holds the rights for the 2nd round in Nice, and Maccabi for the 1st in Tel Aviv. “.
“Maccabi Tel-Aviv did not wish to respond favorably to this exchange of good practices which is practiced regularly”
The Côte d’Azur club develops: ” In order for the two clubs to be able to guarantee the broadcasting of the two matches to their supporters in their own country, the Gym offered the club an exchange of rights in France and Israel, by pure and simple reciprocity, and ensured the production and the broadcast of the return match for which he holds the rights. Unfortunately, Maccabi Tel-Aviv did not wish to respond favorably to this exchange of good practices which is practiced regularly at this level of continental events and prefers to market the rights of the meeting in France on its side. The French radios which intended to cover the Aiglons match are in the same situation, where there is never any question of money in France. »
For the match to be broadcast in France, the situation must therefore be unblocked on the side of the Israeli club. The return match between the two teams will take place in Nice on August 25 at 8 p.m.
