Zee Sports closer to clinching Indian football

Zee Sports is close to clinching domestic football telecast rights in India. “We have offered the soccer telecast rights to Zee for a period of five years and it could be extended for another five years,” Priya Ranjan Das Munshi, president of All India Football Federation, said in Delhi today.

“The final discussions are on with AIFF and we hope to wrap up the process at a meeting next week,” Himangshu Mody, executive vice-president of Zee Sports, told The Telegraph.

“We shortlisted the offer from Zee Sports, Nimbus and NDTV. During negotiations, Nimbus withdrew from the race. The evaluation committee has found a definite edge in favour of Zee Sports compared with NDTV and therefore concluded to send the offer,” Das Munshi added.
