Mediapro appoints Discovery's Bergeaud for 2020 launch of Ligue 1 football channel in France

Wednesday 14 August 2019 | 10:27 CET | News

Spanish media group Mediapro has appointed Julien Bergeaud to the helm of its French subsidiary to lead the launch of the broadcaster's planned new channel, which will be dedicated to Ligue 1 football matches from the 2020-2021 season. Bergeaud was previously the head of Discovery France, and spent most of its career at Eurosport.

Mediapro has secured three out of five sets of French Ligue 1 broadcasting rights for the 2020-2024 period, awarded by the football league LFP in May 2018. At the time, the company said that it intended to launch a channel entirely dedicated to French football, with a business model based on 3.5 million subscribers paying EUR 25 per month.
