In the midst of the discussion about the television rights, the president of the FPF referred to the start of the local tournament.
On Wednesday, February 3rd, the Peruvian government approved the start of the League 1 Betsson 2023 after the authorities met with Juan Reynoso, the coach of the Peruvian team, and Augustine LozanoPresident of Peruvian Football Federation (FPF). However, some national clubs indicated that they will not appear for the clashes on that day until the TV rights issue is settled. Faced with this, the FPF chief broke his silence and spoke about the position of the teams intending to play the local tournament.
“From the start we have worked towards the tournament being played with the 19 clubs, prioritizing their sporting merits and making all the necessary coordination so that neither they nor their supporters are adversely affected in any way. That’s what we trust. “Weekend Liga1 begins with the games announced for the third date, in which all teams participate,” he said on the website of that entity.
Furthermore, he explained that they had invited the Peruvian Football Consortium (CFP) to participate in the bidding process to broadcast the national competition, but there had been no formal proposal.
“In the past few weeks, Telefónica del Perú has canceled more than one meeting with the FPF, showing their refusal to engage in dialogue and their little interest in resolving this situation and reaching consensus,” he said.
