UEFA bows to Israel pressure, allows games to be broadcast to settlements

UEFA (the Union of European Football Associations) has bowed to Israeli pressure and withdrawn its condition that its football games not be broadcast to illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

UEFA had previously told Israel’s Public Broadcasting Corporation – known as Kan – that it may only broadcast the Euro 2020 and 2022 World Cup qualifier games inside the Green Line and not to illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt). This condition was included in the contract due to be signed between UEFA and Kan, for which the latter bid $5.8 million.
