The Russian channel has violated its contract with FIFA, “sliding” broadcast one of the matches of the world championship on football in favor of Formula 1
Before the start of the championship the channels that claim to broadcast the games of the tournament, signed a contract with FIFA. It clearly stated that the broadcasters are obliged to show all world Cup games all live.
Failure to comply with this requirement is a direct violation of the sponsorship obligations.
Today one of the owners of the official rights to broadcast the world Cup matches TV channel “live TV” violated these obligations. He began to broadcast a game between South Korea and Mexico on 11 minutes after the start of the match, because before that I broadcast the races of Formula 1.
It remains unknown, whether to apply the FIFA penalties to the channel and what will be the punishment.
We will remind that earlier Russian players offered to check for doping because of a suspicious series of victories in the matches of the world Cup.
This idea was made by the head of the U.S. anti-doping Agency Travis Tygart. After the Russian team confidently beat the team of Saudi Arabia (5:0) and Egypt (3:1) and reached the play-offs, he said that her players need to check for the presence of prohibited substances in the body, according to British newspaper the Telegraph.
“We need to actively test the national team of Russia to ensure public confidence in the integrity of the world Cup. Those who show outstanding results, you should check more often,” said Tygart.
He believes that in this world Cup, Russia has demonstrated surprisingly impressive results for their level.
