Despite an agreement found between broadcasters and the League regarding “domestic” TV rights at the end of April (Canal +, Bein sport and the LFP agreed on an estimated payment of € 40 million), negotiations between the LFP and Bein continue. According to L'Equipe , Bein sport is still owed € 35 million to the LFP, an amount which should have been paid on April 30, and which represents part of the broadcasting rights for the championship abroad, of which the channel is the only holder. A group made up of Jacques-Henri Eyraud (OM), Jean-Pierre Rivère (Nice), Olivier Sadran (Toulouse) and Didier Quillot, the executive director of the LFP, was responsible for negotiating with the broadcaster, but in vain for the moment , so. The league would like to recover at least 16 million out of the 35 planned, corresponding to the games played.
Ligue 1 still far behind its neighbors
According to L'Equipe, foreign TV rights in Ligue 1 represented a total of € 70 million (out of the approximately € 1.23 billion in total). A paltry amount compared to the other four major championships (3 times less than the Bundesliga, 4 times less than Series A, 11 times less than La Liga and almost 20 times less than the Premier League according to a survey by KMPG Football Benchmark) . On the global level, French TV rights, on the other hand, returned to those of Germany and Italy.
