World Cup’s inclusion in TV ‘crown jewels’ could affect England 2018 bid

The ongoing government review of TV’s sporting “crown jewels” could impact on England’s bid to host the 2018 World Cup, after it emerged that Fifa had warned it would compel UK broadcasters to pay more for the rights to the tournament if the Football Association’s bid was to succeed.

Jérôme Valcke, the Fifa general secretary, and Niclas Ericson, its director of television, told the panel reviewing the issue at the request of the government that it would not insist on the World Cup finals being removed from the list of events protected for Authentic Prada Handbags Outlet Uk free-to-air TV as a prerequisite of England winning the race to host the 2018 tournament.

But the minutes of the meeting between Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Outlet Online Fifa and the panel, led by the former FA executive director David Authentic Prada Shoes Outlet Davies, reveal that it will insist on “full value” being paid for the rights and insist that pre-contracts with ITV and the BBC are in place before it will consider awarding the 2018 World Cup to England.

Fifa has long argued that the UK’s legislation, which lists all 64 World Cup matches, restricts the market and depresses the price it can achieve.

“If the World Cup remained listed in its entirety by the time bids were received, England would not be selected unless, and until, Fifa had had discussions with the BBC and ITV and had struck a pre-contract agreement which gave Fifa full value for its broadcasting rights,” said the minutes of the meeting.

“It was not prepared to award the tournament and then find itself disadvantaged financially as a result of being restricted to a limited pool of bidders,” they added.

The panel met with rights holders and sports bodies in May, but it is understood that Fifa’s position has not changed in the interim.

Fifa, which is Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Online Store taking legal action over the listed event legislation in Belgium, prefers a mixed model in which some matches – for example those involving home nations, plus two quarter-finals, one semi-final, the final and perhaps 10 others of special interest – are listed for broadcast on free-to-air TV.

The others, argued Fifa, could then be sold to pay-TV Authentic Prada Fairy Bag For Sale broadcasters that could better exploit them and raise funds to help the development of football around the world.

The 2018 bid, which this week has benefited from the high-profile presence of David Beckham in a series of meetings with Fifa power brokers and will tomorrow come face to face with its rivals at a media presentation in Cape Town, is in a delicate position.

It is close to finalising an agreement with the government for binding guarantees worth £350m on issues such as visas, transport and accommodation so will be reluctant to apply pressure.

But at the same time, it recognises Fifa’s Authentic Prada Wallet For Sale Philippines wish to maximise its revenues and achieve consistency in its rights sales. The World Cup is its main revenue earner and funds its other activities.

The 2018 team have made commercial attractiveness a key aspect of their pitch. Earlier this week, chief executive Andy Anson promised it would be “the most commercially successful World Cup ever”.

With over a year to go until the 24 members of the Fifa executive committee cast their vote, the bid team is understood to be confident that enough time remains to find Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Online Shop a way wallet forward.

A 2018 spokesman said: “We are aware of the situation”.

Culture Secretary Ben Bradshaw’s response to the Davies review, which recommended the addition of Ashes cricket, international football qualifiers Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Dresses Uk involving the home nations, the Rugby World Cup and Wimbledon to the list of events reserved for live broadcast on free to air TV, is expected to be published next week ahead of a 12-week consultation.

It remains possible that the government could decide to attempt a compromise by de-listing parts of the World Cup as a quid pro quo for listing international qualifiers.

Davies has pointed to the fact that Sky and ESPN will potentially be able to show events Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Shop Online free to air after digital switchover. Both claim that would fly in the face of their current business models.

The Bicester Village Prada Store Number DCMS has been taking legal advice over the proposals after a number of sports threatened to take it to judicial review if they were implemented. In his review, Davies concentrated on whether events had “special national resonance”, but argued the economic impact on sport was beyond his criteria.
