Broadcasting rights stalemate for LASK – Beşiktaş in Europa League

Updated: August 15, 2018

There seems to be a stalemate currently regarding the broadcasting rgiths for the LASK – Beşiktaş match in the UEFA Europa League tomorow.

According to information provided by Haber1903 the broadcast rights belong to Linz and they are trying to sell them for 150.000 Euros.

Due to the financial crisis in Turkey with the Turkish Lira, Beşiktaş are only willing to offer LASK an exchange rate of 5 Lira per Euro for their request but the Austrians have been unwilling to accept.

LASK have made offers to broadcast organizations at the current exchange rate, which is looking unlikely at this time with the match taking place tomorow (Thursday August 16th).

Where can I watch the match?

In Austria the amtch will be broadcast by local tv station LT1 aswell as live streamed on (this will likely be geo blocked however).
