Europe’s governing football body has banned Israel’s national broadcaster from showing World Cup and Euro 2020 football matches in illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Israeli broadcaster Kan bid around $5.8 million for the rights to Israel’s early round games in the football competitions, but will not be able to broadcast them to Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank.

The contract with UEFA, the Union of European Football Associations, states that Kan may only broadcast matches inside the so-called Green Line and not the “Palestinian territories”, Israeli media reported.
