Fox Sports Latin America and ESPN International were forced to increase their fee for the Uefa Champions League and Europa League pay-television rights in Latin America this month to see off aggressive rival bids from Qatari-owned broadcaster beIN Sports and Spanish telco Telefónica.
Uefa achieved another big increase in the value of its Champions and Europa League rights in the Indian subcontinent in its renewal earlier this month with incumbent rights-holder Ten Sports.
Uefa was able to secure a modest increase in rights fee for the Champions League from Polish pay-television broadcaster NC Plus in its renewal last month, despite there being no rival bids.
Uefa enjoyed differing levels of success in the sales of its club competition rights in France and Southeast Asia last month. The outcome points to a cooling of the French market but suggests there is still margin for substantial growth in several major Asian territories.
