AFC decided to put an end to the contract it signed with Le TV in August 2015 after Le TV’s default on installments lately.
Upon the cancelation of the contract, CSM in no time reached out to AFC and claimed their desire to secure it instead. “CSM has a strong reputation in China and its immediate desire to obtain the AFC rights shows how strong AFC IP is in the Chinese market.” AFC General Secretary Ditto’ Windsor John said.
CSM’s rights include the AFC Champions League, FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and AFC Asian Cup and it pledged that it will join forces with CCTV and other Chinese channels to ensure the maximum possible reach for the AFC club and national team competitions.
