TEHRAN: Iran has said that the Asian Football Confederation has canceled television broadcasting rights of the regional champions’ league to the Islamic republic, seemingly over US sanctions against it.
Iran’s football federation said Sunday the AFC had written to it canceling the contract “due to international sanctions.”
The AFC “also cannot provide the live signal for the group stage of the Asian Champions’ League,” Iran’s official body said.
Iran’s federation has written to the AFC in protest.
