Zürich (dpa) – The TV broadcasts of the Club World Cup with Champions League winner FC Bayern Munich are less than three months before the tournament.
World football association FIFA has left questions about media rights for the German market unanswered for more than two weeks. Several TV channels such as ARD, ZDF and RTL said they would not broadcast the tournament.
Due to the corona pandemic, FIFA had postponed the tournament in Qatar originally scheduled for December by two months. The Club World Cup with the winners of the continental associations will be played from 1 to 11 February.
The German record champion FC Bayern is ready for the semi-final as a Champions League winner and could claim their sixth title in a few months. Last year, Liverpool FC won the Club World Cup with coach Jürgen Klopp. DAZN then broadcast the games, but the streaming service claims to have no rights to the games in February.
