Atlético, Real Sociedad Considering Ending TV Deals With Digital+, Selling To Mediapro
Broadcasters in Spain are "looking for clients ahead of the new TV landscape in La Liga that might be in place next summer," according to José Félix Díaz of EL CONFIDENCIAL. With "the possibility of centralized sharing of TV revenue growing more remote, all the teams are looking for the best positioning possible." Atlético Madrid is one club "that could change its broadcaster." Mediapro "has tempted the club with an offer better than" the €42M ($57.3M) per year the team currently receives from Digital+. Atlético President Enrique Cerezo met with Mediapro President Jaume Roures in a Madrid restaurant "a few days ago." Atletico ($57.3M) per year and Real Sociedad (€25.5M ($34.8M) per year) "are the two teams that currently have contracts with Digital+," but they seem determined to listen to the offer being made by Mediapro (EL CONFIDENCIAL, 7/9).
