HFF launches domestic, international Greek Cup rights tender

Greek football’s governing body, the Hellenic Football Federation, has launched a tender for domestic and international rights to its premier cup competition.

The rights will run for three seasons between 2019-20 and 2021-22, with domestic rights covering Greece and Cyprus.

Interested parties have until August 26 to submit their bids for the exclusive rights to the competition.

Greek pay-TV broadcaster OTE is the Greek Cup’s incumbent domestic rights-holder having been the only bidder during the previous tender in 2016. OTE paid a 25-per-cent increase for the rights in 2016.

Cypriot company KG Telestare bought the international rights at the last tender which were understood to be of significantly less value.

PAOK currently holds the Greek Cup title, having beaten AEK Athens 1-0 in the final on May 11.
