Fury as millions miss out on England soccer clashes

TV row: Most fans will not see Wayne Rooney in action against Croatia

England football fans were furious last night after it was revealed most of them will miss out on any TV coverage of Wednesday’s vital World Cup qualifier against Croatia because of a money wrangle between broadcasters.

The full match will be shown exclusively on subscription satellite channel Setanta, which has secured the rights

to all England’s away ties in the competition in a deal worth up to £5million a game.
But terrestrial viewers look unlikely to see the action because Setanta says financial offers from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Five to show highlights are nowhere near high enough.

It is seeking about £1million.

The Federation of Football Supporters said: ‘It’s ridiculous that millions of people are being denied watching our national team play our national sport. A highlights programme is the very least they should get.’

Setanta’s coverage of England’s 2-2 home friendly against the Czech Republic attracted just 734,000 viewers despite a heavy investment in sport in its battle with Sky.

The channel has a £415million joint deal with ITV for 46 live Premier League games, the FA Cup and home England matches.

But it has exclusive coverage of England’s away clashes through separate agreements.
Setanta’s director of sport, Trevor East, said: ‘We are a business, not a charity. None of the bids to show highlights came close to our valuation.’
