France's football league fails to sell broadcasting rights in new auction

Tuesday 2 February 2021 | 11:25 CET | News
The French football league governing body, LFP, said that it was unable to award the lots of Ligue 1 broadcasting rights returned by Mediapro in December. Mediapro's French subsidiary was forced to hand back the rights after financial difficulties. Its Telefoot channel, airing most of the Ligue 1 football games, is continuing to operate while the LFP is in the process of finding a new taker. Amazon, Discovery and DAZN have come forward with bids to acquire the rights, however the reserve price was not met and the sale was terminated unsuccessfully by the LFP.

WOW!! I'm still looking at my bank account with amazement, i remember a few months back i had nothing i couldn't boast of 400 $ in my bank account because i've lost my life-savings and pension to scammers, never  you rule yourself out of life because what you don't know will never kill you, i had lost all hope in life..until i invest in  BTC  trade came along, they changed my life totally. Now I can boast of giving out money because my money keeps increasing daily, i had concluded that all account managers in groups were scammers but they proved me wrong, every time I apologized to them for doubting them from the start. I urge you reading this not to conclude that every account manager is the same. I propose you try Trading and see for yourself before concluding. life is all about understanding and learning, never you underrate this trade..... CONTACT btcinvestment47@gmail.com
