Bank denies report on ‘broadcasting rights’

International Bank of Qatar (ibq) has ‘strongly denied any involvement in the alleged proposal worth $15.56bn to Lega Serie A, the top Italian football division, regarding the League’s broadcasting rights.’
In a statement issued yesterday, Myriam Abou Haidar, Marketing & Corporate Communications manager at ibq stated: “ibq provides core banking services in Qatar and has never engaged in any form of acquisition of broadcasting rights related to any sport activity, therefore we were utterly surprised of the news.
“Consequently, ibq refutes having ever offered any form of bid to Lega Series A. In fact, ibq has never established any contact with Lega Serie A in any respect whatsoever and has, as a banking institution, no direct or indirect interest whatsoever in Lega’s broadcasting rights or any other broadcasting rights.
The news is unfortunately groundless, misleading and fake.”
