The German Football League will soon discuss its contract with the Russian media company Match TV.
According to “SID” information, the league association wants to evaluate the broadcast of the weekend’s Bundesliga games on Match TV in the coming days.
The DFL had recently announced that it would initially refrain from an extraordinary termination of the contract so that the “anti-war calls and appeals for peace from the German stadiums can continue to reach the Russian population”.
As a prerequisite, however, the DFL stated that the basic signal provided would be sent unchanged – including Ukraine-related messages from the league, players, clubs and fans.
If the “TV base signal were repeatedly censored, this would result in an extraordinary dismissal from the DFL,” the league association emphasized. According to information from “Bild am Sonntag”, this is exactly what should have happened.
