Quick, how much do you think Fox and Telemundo paid to have the rights and Spanish language rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup?
If you said anything other than a BILLION dollars, you're wrong.
Fox shelled out $425 million, Telemundo paid $600 million.
But not only does Fox get the World Cup, it gets everything including, "all FIFA events from 2015-2022. That includes the women’s World Cup, as well as the under-20 and under-17 national team competitions."
Our question is — is it worth it?
For Fox and Telemundo it had better be — can't be going around blowing that kind of cash!
