European Court Of Justice Upholds '11 Ruling World Cup, Euro Must Be Shown On Free TV

NOT CREATED EQUAL: The Scotland DAILY RECORD reported UEFA and FIFA argued that "not all the games in the tournaments 'could constitute events of major importance for the general public' and claimed only the final matches of the competitions should be Listed Events." Belgium "also has a similar law regarding World Cup matches, and that was also challenged by FIFA" (DAILY RECORD, 7/18). REUTERS' Keith Weir reported in Britain, the restrictions mean all World Cup and Euro games "have to be shown on either the BBC or ITV." In Belgium, "the rules apply only to the World Cup" and public broadcasters VRT (Dutch) and RTBF (French) have the rights (REUTERS, 7/18).
