The French professional football league (LFP) has entered into exclusive negotiations until the end of January with Qatar's Al-Jazeera for broadcasting rights to six weekly Ligue 1 games in pay-per-view mode for the 2012-2013 to 2015-2016 seasons. The football association also decided to attribute the League Cup competition for the same seasons to France. The LFP still has to sign an agreement for mobile rights. Orange is interested but the league considers its offer too low, reports Les Echos.
