TV rights: No channel wants Ligue 1, the LFP is lying

For 48 hours, the hypothesis of a happy ending in the TV rights file has been circulating, but on the eve of a crucial LFP meeting, some media outlets claim that Vincent Labrune has absolutely no offer to broadcast Ligue 1.

The daily life The team claims this Thursday that DAZN and Beinsports are now the two favorites to buy the broadcasting rights of Ligue 1, while we are now a month and a half away from the resumption of the championship. Enough to reassure the 18 clubs who are anxiously waiting for the Professional Football League to guarantee them income for the 2024-2025 season. A certain wind of optimism therefore reigns, especially since several sources revealed that Nasser Al-Khelaifi had decided to take charge of the file.

Except that this dream scenario collides with revelations that go in a totally opposite direction. Thus, Abdellah Boulma completely dismantles the hypothesis of a last-minute miracle. “If the LFP is still praying for a sign from beIN, after a whole year of process, it is screwed. The LFP literally has nothing.” Statement from a person close to the case, after reading the article in L’Equipe. One can also wonder how many executives of the LFP and LFP Media will still be in office in several months… ” says the journalist. And he is supported in this disaster scenario by a colleague from RMC.

Ligue 1 on the brink of the precipice

Arthur Perrot, who has been following the case for a long time for the media, explains that he too does not believe in a solution at the finish and that his sources are rather very worried about the sale of the broadcasting rights of Ligue 1. The only negotiator, Vincent Labrune, is walking on the edge of the precipice and French football is roped in with him. A huge salary increase, publicity at every turn about his proximity to the President of the Republic, the bluff has ended up annoying the protagonists at the gaming table. Labrune is playing poker and he literally has a pair of 2s, while saying he has a king and a queen “, explained sources to the RMC journalist, who denies the decisive involvement of Nasser Al-Khelaifi in this burning issue, but recognizes that Yousef Al-Obaidly, CEO of Bein Media Group, is still working to try to bring Canal+ back into the loop. But without success for now. The LFP board of directors is meeting this Friday, so the atmosphere is likely to be tense if Vincent Labrune ultimately has nothing to announce.
