2018 World Cup games of the national football team are among the matches featured by Arryadia.
In May, the Qatari-owned sports network, which owns the broadcast rights to the World Cup, accused a Saudi-based piracy network called “BeOutQ” of pirating the transmission of the 64 games of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
BeIN Sports also called on FIFA to take measures against the channel, investing GBP 12,000 to stop BeOutQ from stealing broadcasts of sports events.
