UK lawyer Alex Haffner says raids conducted by European Commission officers on a number of media firms suggests that it suspects possible anti-competitive behaviour in regard to broadcasting rights for Dutch soccer. Companies raided include Fox Networks Group, a unit of 21st Century Fox, and Ziggo Sport, with the two firms being the main rivals for sports broadcasting in the Netherlands. Haffner, who is a sports and regulatory lawyer with London law firm Fladgate, says the EC has indicated its intention to monitor closely how rights for soccer broadcasts in Europe are tendered, and how they are won.
