Egyptian top-tier Premier League football club Al-Ahly has sold its media rights to the Future Media and Telecommunications Company.

Egyptian Premier League club Al-Ahly has said it is committed to brokering its own broadcast rights deal, but has denied that it has threatened to withdraw from the country’s top-tier football division amid a dispute over the league’s rights deal with state-run broadcaster Egyptian Television Network.

Egyptian Television Network, the state-run broadcaster in Egypt, has acquired rights for the upcoming 2013-14 season of the country’s top-tier football Premier League.

Pay-television broadcaster Al Jazeera has threatened to sue the state broadcasters of Algeria and Egypt, ENTV and Egyptian Television Network, after they showed this week’s 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifiers featuring the two countries.
