TV rights: Ligue 1 on its knees before Qatar

The end of the season is approaching and negotiations continue regarding the allocation of Ligue 1 TV rights for the period 2024-2029. Beinsports is still the big favorite, but no deal has yet been signed by Vincent Labrune for the broadcast of the French championship.

The 2023-2024 season is coming to an end, and football fans still do not know on which channels Ligue 1 will be broadcast next year. And for good reason, after the unsuccessful call for tenders in October, the Professional Football League began over-the-counter negotiations with potential broadcasters, without this having yet resulted in an agreement. . Prime Video does not wish to align with the prices required by the LFP while DAZN has long been in the race, but no longer really seems to hold the rope to recover Ligue 1 matches. From then on, Vincent Labrune’s options are count on the fingers of one hand.

Beinsports, one of whose senior managers is none other than Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, is the big favorite to recover a majority of matches and could be accompanied by Canal +, which seems interested in recovering the best posters of the French championship, probably one or two matches per day. Logically, Beinsports therefore has enormous influence in the negotiations and it is perhaps no coincidence that in each Champions League match, we see Vincent Labrune alongside Nasser Al-Khelaïfi in the stands. Quite crazy scenes it must be said according to journalist Romain Molina.

Labrune and Al-Khelaïfi are inseparable

“Vincent Labrune is begging for a stone to track Nasser Al-Khelaïfi in every match? Never seen a president of the LFP do that. The only strategy is to beg Qatar to save you by signing a big check? » asked the journalist on his very bad step regarding the allocation of TV rights for the championship for the period 2024-2029. As a reminder, the LFP initially hoped for one billion euros, before lowering its ambitions by betting on a sum close to 800 million euros. But for the moment, nothing has filtered regarding the loot that the LFP will recover thanks to the sale of its television rights.
