Uefa has more than doubled the value of its club competitions in Czech Republic and Slovakia by striking an exclusive deal for the Champions League with pay-television broadcaster O2.
The aggressiveness of telco Telekom Srbija was a driving factor in increases in the value of the rights to the Uefa Champions League and Europa League in the Balkans.
Media rights income for Euroleague basketball is likely to be about the same in the 2014-15 season as it was last season, partly due to difficulties in Russia, one of the sport’s key markets.
