The game of negotiations between the Professional Football League (LFP) and the chains is resumed. Maxime Saada, the president of Canal +, would have proposed an association with beIN Sports to broadcast the next seasons for an amount of approximately 500 million euros per year, plus a bonus of 60 million. An upward revaluation from the 2023-2024 season would also be planned, in order to approach 600 million.
An amount lower than expected
According to our colleagues from L’Équipe, the LFP considers that this offer does not meet expectations. She would like, at least, a fixed envelope of 600 million per season, the idea being to allow the clubs to limit the losses garnered since the beginning of the health crisis.
The negotiations are therefore far from over, the game of cat and mouse will undoubtedly continue for some time. Especially since the LFP has also raised the possibility of launching its own channel to broadcast part of the matches of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. This antenna, if it sees the light of day, would be offered with a monthly subscription of 10 or 11 euros.
