Media Notes: Eurosport Receives Broadcast Rights For '13-15 UEFA Youth League
Published September 12, 2013
Pan-European broadcaster Eurosport has been awarded broadcasting rights for the upcoming '13-15 UEFA Youth League. Eurosport is the first official broadcaster of the event (Eurosport). ... Radio 5 Live’s top football commentator Alan Green "was conspicuous by his absence from the England game in Ukraine on Tuesday night." The controversial Green, who divides opinion among fans and those in the industry, "had been expected to be in Kiev, having returned from holiday in time to commentate on England’s win against Moldova at Wembley on Friday." Green "had personal reasons for missing the game." But there "has also been a summer-long dispute over whether he would be able to fly to Ukraine in business class as he has done regularly throughout his BBC career" (London DAILY MAIL, 9/10).
