Even if the macro-economic and financial context is delicate, "admitted the leader, the LFP hopes to reach this symbolic number for "global audiovisual revenues", i.e. the domestic and international rights of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. "It may be a little optimistic but we have a significant margin of progress on the international," added Labrune.
In the longer term, "our target is €1.6 billion in annual revenues in 2027. The real objective is this, "said the president of the LFP. During the previous cycle, the League, which hoped to receive for the period 2020-2024 1.153 billion euros per year for Ligue 1, including more than 800 million Mediapro which then went bankrupt, had to review its ambitions downwards and settle for a valuation of 624 million euros per year.
