Julio Fariñas, CEO of Footters, attend the AS newspaper and tells the details of the broadcasts of the season that starts next week. “We are very excited and very happy. It has been a very hard road in recent months and well, this was the main objective of the company. I think we have been working for a long time, four years, valuing competitions and I don't think there was anyone who deserved this competition more, in its first joint commercialization, than Footters. And obviously Fuchs Sports too, which has made a huge effort, both economically and structurally, in order to be the winner, “says Fariñas in relation to audiovisual rights.

For Footters it is “a milestone” to get the rights to bring the games closer to the fans and show themselves “very happy and with great responsibility to be able to value the competition, to be able to live up to the audiovisual product that the RFEF expects, as well as the clubs, like us as an operator. “For a humble company, like football that counts, it is also a great responsibility, as Julio Fariñas comments:”We are going to carry out a very ambitious business plan because the economic stake has been enormous. “

“We will expand the content if we can close the same agreement as last year with DAZN and the Copa del Rey”

This season the subscription passes for users will change. “We will have two types of subscription, the monthly, which we are working to adjust some details, the campaign will come out on Friday, and the season ticket, which will be € 69.99. This option will include all of the Footters content: First RFEF, regular season and promotion playoff, which is a novelty because last year they were apart. The entire regular season of the Second RFEF, the two matches per group that we will broadcast of the Third RFEF and the content of international competitions: Serie B, Austrian Bundesliga, Liga MX and Liga Expansión and the Paulista U-20 Championship. And if we can finally close the same deal we closed last season with DAZN, to broadcast the first two phases of the Copa del Rey, since all that content will be in the subscription “, details Fariñas from Luxembourg where he received the news from the RFEF yesterday.

The broadcasts of the matches will have a simulcast with the two regional televisions, TV3 and TVG, which will give between one and two games per week, “We have little time between now and the season begins, but the intention of Footters and Fuchs is to be able to offer a game in a national operator, possibly open. So that the competition has much more impact at the media level, that it has more visibility, but we are a few days before the start of the season, it will not be for the first day, but we are working with several national operators to try to offer one match per group. We hope that in two or three weeks we will be able to offer news about it, “adds Fariñas.

The objectives of Footers do not end with the First RFEF. “We have achieved the international tender and betting rights, which together with the rights of the Italian series B and added to the rest of the content, since they are being a frantic last days and there are still some more milestones to come, between now and the beginning of the season. We will probably also incorporate a more important competition and we are working very hard to make the content offer the best that is within our reach and the best for our users. “

Talking with Julio Fariñas is talking with a close person who does not lose a moment to remember the team that accompanies him on this trip and how much it has cost them to get to where they are now. “When we started four years ago we didn't even think we were going to get here. We are a company that does not come from any large investment fund. We were five friends who had a great idea and very few resources. And well, getting here, up to this point the truth is that it is a satisfaction. Very happy, but not only for us, but also for modest football, non-professional football, “says the CEO of the platform that gives voice to humble football.
