Sky has won its appeal for Mediapro to have its tender for Serie A television rights revoked.
The Court of Milan reached its verdict on Wednesday, with judge Claudio Maragoni arguing Mediapro’s tender was ‘not properly formulated’ and ‘violated Antitrust principles’.
The Spanish broadcaster won Serie A’s TV rights for 2018-21 in February, but its purchase was quickly challenged by Sky, which felt the former was not in a legal position to buy them.
Consequently, the bidding process is expected to start over, which will also allow Mediaset back in, although it remains to be seen whether Mediapro will launch a second bid.
