Soccer-Spanish broadcaster rules out bid for Super Cup rights in Saudi Arabia over human rights concerns

MADRID, Nov 14 (Reuters) - Spain’s national broadcaster RTVE will not bid to broadcast the upcoming Spanish Super Cup soccer tournament in Saudi Arabia due to human rights concerns, a RTVE source said on Thursday.

Spain’s soccer federation (RFEF) has announced a three-year deal to play the tournament in Saudi Arabia, with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Valencia contesting the first edition of the revamped competition in Jeddah in January 2020.
