TV rights: Ligue 1 at 30 euros, a terrifying survey

The Professional Football League plans to launch its 100% Ligue 1 channel due to the lack of having found a broadcaster for next season. But the price envisaged by the LFP scandalizes football fans.

The general assembly of the LFP resulted in a no choice on the part of the Ligue 1 clubs, since Vincent Labrune had nothing new to propose concerning the choice of one or more channels to give the 2024-2025 championship live. We can already forget the billion euros promised last year by the boss of the League, and even 500 million euros per season just for the L1 would be a small miracle. So, the idea of ​​a channel set up by Ligue 1 is growing day by day, except that the price of the subscription has already made football fans jump. Indeed, the LFP is seriously considering asking for 30 euros per month to follow the Ligue 1 series, which is obviously a very large amount for a channel that will not give anything other than the championship. Via his X account, Pierre Ménès carried out a survey, which collected thousands of votes. And the result is terrible.

A 30 euro channel that will miss its audience

Indeed, of the 29,122 voters, which is not nothing even if this remains a survey on social networks and is therefore not representative of a sample of the population, 94% of people say that they do not will not subscribe to this 100% Ligue 1 channel if it is marketed at 30 euros per month, compared to only 6% who will pay this to the Professional Football League. A huge disavowal for the leaders of the L1, especially since many voices are being raised to point out that this price is totally surreal and risks plunging the 18 Ligue 1 clubs a little further into the crisis. However, all this could also be a final means of pressure on Canal+ and Beinsports so that these two channels end up getting along in order to avoid being seen as the gravediggers of Ligue 1, which Maxime Saada, the boss of Canal+, says especially wanted to avoid.
