Lobos BUAP’s First Liga MX Game Will not Be Televised

The newly-promoted Lobos BUAP confirmed via Twitter that their inaugural Liga MX match will not be broadcast on television, radio, internet, or on any other platform by any means.

The reason for that is the club is still negotiating with Televisa, the current possessor of the club’s TV rights. Lobos BUAP’s statement notes that Televia’s current rights are in effect through Jornada 5.

The club “apologies to the fans for not having accepted the proposal to close the contract because it was not considered fair” and promises to make a “total effort to achieve a negotiation in the next few days.”

The official statement also notes that although Lobos are the only Liga MX team to start the Apertura 2017 without a television contract in place, it is not a unique situation as other clubs have been in the same position before.
