The LFP launched a new call for tenders on Tuesday for the broadcasting of L1 and L2 matches, but only on Mediapro lots and therefore the matches broadcast by the Telefoot channel.
Which, we learn from
, hardly enchants Canal +.
The group intends to challenge this new call for tenders in court and wants a total reopening of French football TV rights.
The @LFPfr launched this Tuesday, January 19, 2021 two market consultations relating to the audiovisual exploitation rights of the championships of @ Ligue1UberEats on the one hand and of @ Ligue2BKT on the other hand.

Believing that "Ligue 1 has lost a lot of value", Canal + boss Maxime Saada announced last week that the encrypted channel intended to return to the Professional Football League (LFP) its share of matches (20% of L1) , wishing to see all the matches put back on sale via a new call for tenders.
For Saada, it is out of the question to end up in "a situation where an actor pays less than Canal + and broadcasts 80% of the competition!"
The situation is already difficult to hear now, ”he adds.
