National Commission on Markets and Competition (CNMC)

According to CNMC, the LPF prevented Mediaset cameras from accessing football stadiums for three league days during Season 2016/17. Specifically, the LFP prohibited the cameras of the Mediaset group (Telecinco and Cuatro) from taking images of the pitch during rounds 24 (24, 25 and 26 February 2017) and 25 (28 February, 1 and 2 March 2017) of the First Division, and round 27 of the Second Division (24, 25 and 26 February 2017).

CNMC determined that the LFP had violated its Decision of January 2016 on the limitation of access to stadiums. By this decision, CNMC obliged the LFP to guarantee audiovisual media access to spaces in which events of general interest are held.
