The broadcaster had been outbid by Mediapro for the rights for the 2018-21 seasons. Sky successfully argued that the Spanish broker was not in a legal position to make an offer.
“The announcement of Mediapro being assigned Serie A’s television rights raises so many perplexities, that it’s necessary to verify the legality […] before it can present any important offers,” Sky said in a statement.
“Sky emphasises that it wants to keep guaranteeing subscribers a quality product, with full journalistic and editorial autonomy in a non-discriminatory system and free competition among operators.”
A decision is expected on May 4.
