The 20 clubs that make up Ligue 1, the top division of French club football, have reportedly agreed on a revenue distribution system for the competition’s next broadcast rights cycle.

French newspaper L’Équipe said a system was established at a meeting last week. Ligue 1’s 2020-21 to 2023-24 domestic rights are worth a total of nearly €1.2bn ($1.3bn) per season in deals with Spanish agency and production house Mediapro, pay-television broadcaster beIN Media Group and Free Mobile. BeIN will sublicense its domestic Ligue 1 rights from next season to pay-television broadcaster Canal Plus as part of an exclusive distribution deal between the companies.
