A few days before the start of the fines for users who subscribe to thepezzotto, the administrator of the Lega Serie A, Luigi De Siervo, returned to speak and interviewed by Il Sole 24 Ore took stock of the status of the works for the assignment of rights TV of our league.
In the interview he announced that the League is working to change the duration of TV rights, and it should go from three to five years. The choice aims to maximize investments by broadcasters, but also to increase the value of the league.
The discussion also moved to the piece, and De Siervo welcomed the news of the fines by the Guardia di Finanza which ended”that sense of impunity typical of our country”. The executive noted that now the wrongdoer pays, e “We have come to punish not only the criminal organizations that spread pirated signals, but also those alleged fans who, by purchasing illegal season tickets, become accomplices to this outlawed and stupid system because they damage the club they declare eternal love for”.
However, the challenge to the phenomenon is destined to continue also in the coming months, with even more sophisticated mechanisms to undermine it definitively. In this regard, De Siervo explained that Lega Serie A is working with Agcom to put in place a automatic procedure that leads to the immediate closure of pirated websites and the blackout of matches, as has been the case for some time in England.
