TV rights: Beinsports no longer responds, Ligue 1 collapses

This Saturday, Vincent Labrune is bringing together representatives of Ligue 1 in order to definitively examine the issue of Ligue 1 rights. And against all expectations, Beinsports has distanced itself from the issue.

On one side DAZN, which is making an offer with financial guarantees, but no bank guarantees, which is obviously worrying, on the other Warner Bros, which is not providing any guarantees, but has real know-how. It is ultimately between these two offers that Ligue 1 will have to decide, because against all expectations and despite the rumors relayed by several journalists, Beinsports has not lifted a finger in this matter. The boss of the Qatari sports channel, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, got angry on Friday during a video conference meeting, and reminded his colleagues that he was not present at the LFP as the head of Beinsports, but as the president of Paris Saint-Germain. A clear and concise message at a time when the owner of the rights to Ligue 2 until 2029 is completely snubbing Ligue 1. While the 18 L1 clubs are noting this abandonment, Vincent Labrune still wants to believe in Santa Claus, confirms L’Equipe.

Beinsports as a savior, only Labrune believes in it

Our colleague reveals that despite the growing tension with Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of the Professional Football League thinks that the latter will not abandon Ligue 1, even though everything indicates that he will do so. Vincent Labrune, who has been favoring a solution with beIN Sports for six months, has been waiting for a gesture. It did not come. He clearly reported it to the entire board of directors, which includes Nasser al-Khelaïfi, chairman of beIN Media Group and PSG… But the Qatari leader warned that he was not the representative of beIN… Despite everything, Labrune still wants to believe that the option of beIN participation is still possible. Even if the signals in this direction are increasingly weak “, explains Etienne Moatti. And we can understand that Beinsports is considered the providential savior, since if DAZN were to win the bet, the sports daily calculated that PSG would receive 15 million euros per season for TV rights and the last in Ligue 1 around 5 million euros. A real industrial disaster.
