Before the end of the official deadline for accepting applications for a tender for the operation of the media rights of the Football Premier League of Ukraine (UPL), several applications from potential broadcasters were received at once.
According to fanday.net, applications for all rights – two: from Setanta Sports and Espresso. We are talking about the full broadcast of matches of the Ukrainian Football Championship live, Ukrinform reports.
There are applicants for other broadcast packages, including individual matches. According to the source, MEGOGO is not among the applicants for full broadcasts of UPL matches.
Earlier it was reported that if none of the bidders offer a price that suits all clubs, the UPL will launch its own channel.
It should be noted that in recent years, most of the matches of the championship of Ukraine were shown by the Futbol channels, which ceased to exist. The 1+1 holding was responsible for broadcasting the home games of Dynamo, Zorya and Dnipro-1.
