Mediapro has failed to present an offer in the second auction for Serie A’s 2018-21 broadcasting rights.
ANSA reports only Sky, Mediaset and Perform Group made bids before Wednesday’s 10:00 BST deadline.
Serie A sponsor TIM and Italia Way, the two other companies tipped to enter the fray, were also absent.
Mediapro had won the initial auction for rights in question, yet the Spanish broadcaster lost its tender after its offer was considered to have broken anti-trust regulations.
