I posted this a while ago.  It seems La Liga have their tongue firmly in the ass or the Arabs, beIN also control all the TV in Spain. Very worrying.

I do like how it has backfired on them and they aren't getting a game whilst the clubs are inundated with thousands of angry Saudi fans on social media.

I only heard about the story this week on BBC's World Football show and it has been wholly unsuccessful so far. Not to mention completely screwing the clubs where these players came from.

Disgustingly it’s the way football is going all over Europe. The Premier League are also signing joint deals with Gulf States and even though BeIn Sports owns the foreign rights to La Liga, in Spain it’s always been owned by MediaPro.

I saw an advert for La Liga out here on BeIn sport and it was horrific but also expected, an Asian boy telling his mum about how they feel part of the game and the club etc with Messi and co in the background.

Obviously, those who buy the rights to show a product then choose how they sell it to their potential constomers... They’ll be using mind setting manipulation as is used by marketing people so as to click in to make it a necessity. I work in that industry myself and to be honest I have to be cold as ice in the knowledge that we manipulate everyone.

BeIn Sports has owned the rights for La Liga in the US. For over 6 years now and over there they sell it in a different manner designed for the North American mind.

Football all over is going this way and they’ve sold their soul and pulled down their pants while bending over to all mate!

Football no longer has anything to do with local identity.

Bein owns the rights also in the Spain from this season.  Bein La Liga shows most of the games.

What I do not like about this whole deal, is that the certain clubs have a history of religious backgrounds which is also displayed on their badges,  this has been modified so it fits with them and doesn't upset the Arab nations,  which is just a disgrace.

BeIn is a channel portal in Spain like for example SKY SPORTS in the UK or Italy... Clubs make their own personal deals if the club is influential enough. For example FC Barcelona sold their rights to Movistar Telecommunications about three years ago which caused a storm when they departed from the blanket company MediaPro... Real Madrid remain with MediaPro but are in the process of selling their rights to Telefonica.  The Spanish telecommunications giant also owns Britain’s national telecommunications service, BT Telecom.  We are in a new era mate of where we don’t know where we stand and owners cultivate and influence us depending on cultural differences.

Agree with this but again that’s all about marketing and potential customers mate.  Why I said in a previous post about pulling down one’s pants and bending over!

Thankfully those crest changes are only for those countries who see it as important not to see a crucifix just in case they’re offended which tells you more about them than anything else.

I understand that money is the most important but it just destroys the whole rawness of how the clubs begun and creating a fake history to suit someone else because of Money.   The same thing will happen to a club like Ajax, Arabs will block the Jewish history of the club.

Yea but I mean you do not see them channels in England yet,  but there will be a time when you do as they will have their own platform due to their finances to overtake Sky very quickly.

Well SKY are losing their foothold slowly, it’s been visible for a while due to the telecommunications companies having more influence and global power.  The channels themselves aren’t the problem, the issue lies in what Danny wrote about how it’s marketed abroad which is under the control of rights ownership.

Spains version of SKY is CANAL+ which runs the show in Spain and where BeIn Sports buy games of them... That’s internal.  But even CANAL+ has been losing power over recent years.

Is that the "It's not soccer, it's La Liga" advert? If so I agree, absolutely cringe.

It's our fault(the English) to be honest, we started all this shit and now it's spreading around Europe's top leagues like aids as clubs around Europe are doing it to keep up with modern times.

America was very late to the party when it came to globalising their leagues. Especially when you consider that their top 4 sports are the pinnacle of each league.

Well not on the commercial side with sponsorships on stadiums etc.

Due to the unique nature of how tv works in the US where they have publicity spots in the middle of games and the emphasis on graphics within games themselves, in North America stadium and team sponsorship isn’t as necessary and for that reason isn’t a pronounced. Their methods for publicity are more blatant tv wise which is something that isn’t accepted in Europe by viewers. Plus the fan (even today although obviously changing) isn’t as ethically important in the US as it is in Europe.

Maybe they were ahead of the times with that, but Barcelona had sponsorship on their shirts before any of the major leagues in America dared to have a sponsor on their shirts.

America seems to get blamed for a lot of things, conveniently overlooking how other countries have sold out.

Well its the owners now are American or they want to follow this American way. The Saudis just pump endless money into something but I am scared of the future of football if they are starting to control the clubs plus the TV deals, as you will get these crazy ideas like in Spain, when you have to take a number of their players over.

The whole idea behind this was to improve their performance of the national team in the World Cup. Not really about commercialisation.

Saudi Arabia, as much news to me, seems to have a very strong domestic setup. Big crowds and big wages for their own players. This was about improving the standard of competition which their best players played against.
