Sponsors of the Czech national football team have objected to the team’s away games only broadcast on cable with a small number of subscribers, the daily Hospodářské noviny reported on Friday. Tuesday’s Euro 2012 qualifier between Lichtenstein and the Czech Republic was only broadcast on Sport1, a cable channel with around 100,000 subscribers. The same station will broadcast a match in Scotland next year, while an away game against Spain will most likely not be shown at all. The Česká spořitelna bank and T-Mobile said they would prefer the games be screened on channels with nation-wide coverage.
