FIFA threatening Women’s World Cup broadcast blackout in Europe

FIFA President Gianni Infantino says the organisation has been receiving TV bids between $1-10 million, and they would not cave in to such low offers

 
FIFA is threatening a broadcast blackout across Europe’s top five nations ahead of this year’s Women’s World Cup.

The governing body has been selling the TV rights to the competition separately from the men’s tournament, but FIFA has been receiving low-ball bids to broadcast the event.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino says the organisation has been receiving TV bids between $1-10 million, and they would not cave in to such low offers.

“To be very clear, it is our moral and legal obligation not to undersell the FIFA Women’s World Cup,” Infantino said. “Therefore, should the offers continue not to be fair, we will be forced not to broadcast the FIFA Women’s World Cup into the big five European countries.”

“The European public will not be able to watch the Women’s World Cup.

“FIFA is trying to grow revenue in the Women’s World Cup

“Broadcasters should put their action behind their words, because they rightfully criticise organisations for not paying women and men equally … otherwise we’ll simply not sell these rights at these undervalued prices to them.”

The event kicks off in July.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
