GolTV To Be Sold for $200 Million

SCP Worldwide, a company owned by MLS team Real Salt Lake, has agreed in principle to buy GolTV for $200 million according to the Sports Business Journal.

The deal hasn’t been approved yet as executives within some of Major League Soccer’s broadcasters may complain because they find it inappropriate for MLS owner Dave Checketts to buy a network that competes against MLS media partners.

GolTV currently owns the TV rights to La Liga in the United States. According to the article below, GolTV reportedly paid close to $10 million for those rights to La Liga.

In the article, it also mentions that SCP Worldwide has purchased the TV rights in North America for the 2010 World Cup qualifying matches involving the teams from the South American Football Federation.

If the $200 million deal goes through, I wonder how GolTV will change – if any. And if it does change, whether SCP Worldwide knows what they’re doing. It should be some interesting weeks to come in the world of football on TV in America.

    I pray to god that these Americans don’t screw up with the programming. I swear, if I see La Liga being replaced by MLS then that is the day I will shoot myself.
