IMG Grows Overseas
Just last week, IMG acquired CSI Sports. CSI Sports was previously a part of Octagon. In addition to having TV rights for Wimbledon and the Rugby Cup, IMG will now hold the rights for the Football Association, Wales Cricket Board, and other groups [IMG deal makes TV sports rights hot properties again].
It looks like IMG is not going to just sit back and watch as CAA tries to use its entertainment clout to buy the sports representation business.
