The management of the LFP presented this Friday to French clubs its detailed project with a view to creating a 100% Ligue 1 channel, which will be invoiced over ten months at the price of 30 euros including tax.

Will the LFP finally find a solution to broadcast Ligue 1? While the calendar for next season was revealed this Friday, the Professional Football League organized a heated board of directors meeting, where the subject of TV rights was obviously put on the table.

Faced with the lack of solutions at the level of broadcasters, the LFP studied the idea of ​​a 100% Ligue 1 channel. The price of the monthly subscription was presented at 25 euros per month… excluding taxes. With VAT, the price would rise to 30 euros per month including tax. With billing to the subscriber over ten months, i.e. the duration of the championship season.

A net turnover of 578 million per year expected

As indicated by RMC Sport, the League forecasts in its projection an average gross income over the five seasons of 714 million euros annually. Once the various costs and fees are removed, the LFP aims for a net turnover of 578 million euros on average per year for this period 2024-2029.

Regarding the number of subscribers, the leaders of the League are targeting a little over two million for the first year and up to 3.3 million for the last year. “We believe that someone who follows Ligue 1 cannot do without it,” judged a manager present at the CA.

The situation around TV rights is all the more vague as a meeting between Maxime Saada, the boss of Canal+, and Vincent Labrune, the president of the LFP, was canceled at the last moment. This was to be a first contact between the LFP, mired in unsuccessful negotiations to allocate TV rights to Ligue 1 for the next five seasons.
