The Canal Football Club will return to the 2020-2021 school year with two programs on Saturday and Sunday, a new formula and few images of matches - Charlotte Schousboe

While its fate was uncertain for several months, The Canal Football Club , an institution in the clear of the encrypted chain for more than 10 years, will return well the next school year, in a new formula and no longer only on Sunday but also on Saturday. Why ? As L'Equipe reminds you, the right to operate a magazine stamped Ligue 1 on Sundays for the period 2020-2024 has been recovered by the Catalan audiovisual group Mediapro, which will broadcast the Sunday poster and seven other games per day. But Canal + managed to buy two games a day from beIN Sports, on Saturday at 9 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m. Hence a reconfiguration of the Canal Football Club .

Two shows but no images

Still according to information from L'Equipe , the Saturday broadcast will be before the 9 p.m. match, which will be the best meeting of the day, and this 28 times in the season and outside the big shocks at PSG-Marseille. You follow ? On Sunday, it will be the opposite and in the aftermath of the 5 p.m. The show should be more European, with images of the Premier League, whose channel owns the rights, but also of other leagues according to partnerships and negotiations with beIN Sports, or with RMC Sport for the Champions League.

On the other hand, what does not change are Hervé Mathoux and Pierre Ménès, always present at the animation and on set. The content of the programs itself remains to be defined, between debates, interviews, reports, and therefore the impossibility of broadcasting summaries of Ligue 1 matches. Unless it uses the right to information, and its 30 seconds of images per match, a right reserved for multisport magazines at Stade 2. What a puzzle!
