TV rights: beIN Sports pays La Liga but takes it to court

TEAM INFO. Broadcaster of La Liga in 35 countries, beIN Sports played the clock to the payment of its last installment of broadcasting rights, expected by the Spanish League since mid-August. According to our information, beIN ended up settling what it owed La Liga on Thursday. Information confirmed in the entourage of the League.

beIN Media Group also confirms “ that he has honored his last obligations to LaLiga – as expected, and in line with beIN’s relationship of trust with all our partners for decades “but let it be known for his part that the amount due” was €38 million (and not €50 million) according to the terms of the contract “. A spokesperson for the group adds that beIN “also takes legal action against La Liga for violating the most basic professional standards”. Proceedings have been initiated before the Commercial Court of Madrid to ” breach of trust “.

Javier Tebas offensive

La Liga president Javier Tebas recalled again on Wednesday in The Team the amount owed by the Qatari audiovisual group: “Since August 15, they owe us €50 million. They owed us 60 million and they paid 10”. His repeated offensive statements against PSG and its president Nasser al-Khelaïfi, also president of beIN Media Group, would also have generated increasingly strong tensions.

It is unfortunate that the president of La Liga, week after week, continues messy personal squabbles and public attacks on partners and stakeholders, before the interests of Spanish clubs and Spanish football, adds beIN Media Group. All this at a time when La Liga needs good leadership and strong partnerships more than ever. »
