Bars in Spain hate TV soccer

Published on .

Owners of bars and restaurants in Spain say they will boycott products of advertisers on Saturday night soccer matches, claiming that the televised matches cost the sector $800 million every year. The Federacion Espanola de Hosteleria has also announced a one-day closure of bars and restaurants nationwide, and a gift for all those deciding to eat out while matches are on. The group has been trying to have the league to change the time the matches are telecast, so far without success.
