    Why Have FIFA Suspended Ahmad Ahmad?

    Why Have FIFA Suspended Ahmad Ahmad?

    When Gianni Infantino ran for FIFA President in 2016, he ran on an anti-corruption ticket.
    Looking to succeed Sepp Blatter, this approach was hardly surprising. The problem is… the claims of corruption just haven’t gone away.
    The most recent FIFA representative under scrutiny is the President of the Confederation of African Football, Ahmad Ahmad, who, earlier this month, was suspended for 5 years by FIFA.
    In this episode, we ask: Why has Ahmad Ahmad been suspended by FIFA? And why doesn’t the corruption go away?

    Will Mediapro's Row with Ligue 1 Change the Future of Broadcasting Rights?

    Will Mediapro's Row with Ligue 1 Change the Future of Broadcasting Rights?

    Ligue 1, France’s top footballing division, is widely considered to be the worst of the top five leagues in Europe. The league’s management, though, have been working hard to change this.
    One avenue open to leagues looking to improve their profile is increasing their broadcast revenue. In 2018, Ligue 1 did this by moving from Canal+ to Mediapro as the leading rights holder for the league.
    In October, though, Mediapro failed to produce a scheduled 172 million Euro payment to the league, throwing French football into turmoil.
    In this episode, we ask: what impact will Mediapro’s row with Ligue 1 have on the broadcast rights market?

    Due to Brexit, freedom of movement with European players has officially ended.

    Today, we ask: Are Brazilian fans falling out love with their national team?
