The French professional football league continues to explore broadcasting options for Ligue 1 matches. One of the options under consideration is the creation of its own channel.

According to L’Équipe, his new project is independent of traditional broadcasters and will be available through seven potential distributors: Free, Bouygues, SFR, Orange, Amazon Prime Video, Molotov TV, and Google TV. Instead of a fixed fee, the LFP (Ligue de Football Professionnel) will receive a percentage from subscriptions generated by each distributor.

The French professional football league has already acquired the necessary materials to start broadcasting in August, ahead of the new season.

Previously, streaming company DAZN and broadcaster beIN were the main contenders for a contract covering the period from 2024 to 2029. However, an auction scheduled for October failed as no bids were received meeting the reserve price of approximately 800 million euros.

It will be recalled that PSG's parting of ways with striker Kylian Mbappe was hardly amicable, and the Parisian club's bosses were so offended by the player that they even owed the forward his salary.
