Mediapro wants French football league to lower price of Ligue 1 rights

Friday 9 October 2020 | 13:01 CET | News
Spanish media group Mediapro will seek to bring down the price of the Ligue 1 broadcast rights acquired in 2018, which cover the 2020-2024 period. Speaking to L'Equipe, Mediapro president Jaume Roures said that that French football league governing body LFP should accept a lower payment for the current season, in view of the exceptional conditions brought about by the Covid-19 crisis. While seeking to open these negotiations, the group also asked the LFP for more time to pay its latest instalment, which was due on 05 October, a request that was rejected by the football league.
