The Vultures support change, Luis Mendez recalls, but do not want to see incarnates harmed
Through vice-president and SAD director Luis Mendez, Benfica has been supportive, “in principle”, of negotiating centralization of broadcast rights to the tournament, but has indicated that the Eagles refuse to be harmed by the process. “We cannot accept that our budgets will decrease because of the decrease in revenue from broadcasting rights,” the director told BTV during the meeting. Explanation of the SAD Eagles accounts.
Luis Mendes stresses that Benfica are “part of the solution, never part of the problem”, but left the fixes to the current testing conditions. He noted that “what we have to understand very well is what the League is doing in terms of training our competitors, the so-called lower and middle class clubs, so that there is social progress”, with examples: “What are we doing?” What we see throughout away matches is that the stadiums do not have the right conditions to receive fans, the vast majority do not have good access, many times the stadiums are not in the right conditions, all of which does not contribute to a really attractive match. The product is likely to be purchased in markets other than Portugal.
The official stressed that Benfica is a club “used to reach stages of the Champions League such as the quarter-finals,” where it finds competitors with “much higher budgets,” stressing the importance of studying the values concerned in terms of the centralization of rights. He stressed that “reducing the funds allocated to this issue will imply a loss of competitiveness at the international level.”
