MOSCOW, April 2. /TASS/. Russian viewers will see on television broadcasts of matches of the world Cup and confederations Cup in football, despite difficult negotiations. TASS said the General producer of TV channel “Match TV” Tina Kandelaki.
The first channel, VGTRK and “Match TV” made an offer to purchase the rights to broadcast the 2018 world Cup
“The situation is coming to the final stage. I think that the outcome will be favorable, since there is no chance that our audience saw the matches of the world Cup and confederations Cup,” said Kandelaki.
In mid-February, the General producer of the First channel Alexander Faifman told TASS that the talks of the three Russian TV channels with the International Federation of football Association (FIFA) for the purchase of rights to broadcast matches of the confederations Cup 2017 and the 2018 world Cup is very far from complete .
In November, Vice-Premier of the Russian Federation, head of the organizing Committee “Russia-2018” Vitaly Mutko said that the cost of the rights to broadcast matches of the upcoming tournaments is $100 million.
