Mediapro, the major broadcaster of Ligue 1 wishing to revise its contract downward, has taken Canal + to court, accusing it of trying to oust it from the French football TV rights market, we learned Thursday from a source having knowledge of the file.

The Sino-Spanish group last week lodged a summons with the Paris Commercial Court to ask Canal +, which it accuses of "abuse of a dominant position", for damages in the context of the negotiations that followed the call for tenders for Ligue 1 rights for the period 2020-2024, we learned from the same source who requested anonymity.

Asked by AFP, Canal + declined to comment.
