Fifa launches rights tender in Spain

World football’s governing body Fifa has opened an invitation to tender in Spain for the media rights to its national team tournaments taking place between 2019 and 2022.

The ITT includes the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and next year’s Women’s World Cup in France. It also covers all editions of the U-17 and U-20 World Cups, the U-17 and U-20 Women’s World Cups, the Futsal World Cup and Beach Soccer World Cup.

The media rights include television, internet, mobile and radio transmissions. Following a question-and-answer period running from today (Tuesday) through to November 30, submissions to Fifa must be received by 3pm CET on December 6.

Commercial broadcaster Mediaset acquired exclusive rights to this summer’s World Cup in Russia, building on its coverage of the 2014 and 2010 tournaments.
