The group teamed up with BeIN Sports to secure the four-year deal for EUR 64 million, having already been awarded the rights to the top-tier Ligue 1 for an annual EUR 1.15 billion over the same period. In a statement, Mediapro said it plans to exclusively broadcast 8 Ligue 1 games at 7pm every Saturday as well as mid-week games starting with the 2020 season.
