Spain’s LaLiga retenders unsold free-to-air domestic football rights packages

LaLiga, which operates the top two divisions of Spanish football, has restarted a tender process for two unsold domestic free-to-air rights packages for the 2019-20 to 2021-22 cycle.

The tender, which was launched this week, covers exclusive rights to the following two packages: Lot 1 (one second-pick Primera División match every game-week) and Lot 3 (two Segunda División matches every game-week).

Both packages were part of the original 8-lot tender LaLiga launched last May. Telco Telefonica and broadcaster Mediapro have acquired the six packages so far sold.

Lots 1 and 3 were also unsuccessfully brought back to the market last December

The deadline for submission of bids is May 6, with the lots provisionally awarded the same day. LaLiga plans to formalise any agreements on May 13.
