Mediapro is close to a deal for global rights to Bolivia’s home 2022 World Cup qualifiers, but must wait 30 days before its victory can be confirmed.

The agency’s bid of $12m (€10.5m), plus another $1m should Bolivia qualify for the 2022 World Cup, was by far the largest offer made to the Federación Boliviana de Fútbol. Thirty per cent of the guaranteed $12m will be paid to the FBF upfront.
