COPS in Malaga have raided a local Internet service provider who was providing illegal streaming of Premier League football matches online.

The Policia Nacional posted a video of the raid on Twitter, saying that they have teamed up with Premier League bosses to crack down on illegal streaming.

In the post, the Spanish Police said: “One goal against piracy! Spanish Police and Premier League join forces to raid a local ISP in Malaga(Spain) offering unauthorised matches.”

The Police were informed of Y Internet’s unlawful actions by an Irdeto investigator. 

Thousands across the UK and Spain illegally stream football matches.

Premier League Director of Legal Services, Kevin Plumb, said: “The raids conducted by the Spanish authorities, supported in this case by Irdeto’s expertise, are a positive example of law enforcement taking piracy and IP infringement seriously.


“This approach is essential for organisations like the Premier League – and other creative industries – as our model is predicated on the ability to market and sell rights and protect intellectual property.


“It is because of this that clubs can invest in star players and managers, and world class stadiums – the very things fans enjoy about our competition.”

    • Piracy is criminal isn’t it? It’s theft. Short & simple. If somebody stole from you would you say “OMG, who cares? The police have more important things to do, like catching criminals”? Somehow I doubt it.

    • Big business comes before little people in the eyes of the law. I’d like to know just how much money they lose, in the great scheme of things I reckon very little and if they made these matches available and accessible at a reasonable price I’m sure these illegal sites would go out of business very quickly.

  1. Worse. These people have never refunded any person that paid for these sports services they just fob them off and pretend they do not offer IPTV anymore. Investigate these scammers more.
