The French Football Federation will formalize the broadcasters of the French Cup in the coming days with BeIN Sports and France Television.
Monday evening, during the draw for the thirty-second finals of the Coupe France, the discussion around the TV rights of the Coupe de France were intense. The National Competitions Department (DCN) also sent an email to the clubs this Wednesday morning.
“We inform you that we schedule all matches by default on Saturday January 7 at 00:00 a.m. pending further information on the official competition broadcaster and the final match programming grid defined in agreement with the broadcaster” informed the DCN.
If Eurosport threw in the towel on the broadcast of the French Cup, France Television told us that it was still in negotiation. But Noël Le Graët spoke on the subject today with The Team. “I think we will be operational at the end of the week to sign a new four-year contract. There will be France Télévisions and another broadcaster to replace Eurosport. »
According to our information, confirmed by several sources, it will be BeIN Sports which will become co-broadcaster of the Coupe de France from the thirty-second finals. It therefore remains to know the terms of this contract and the consequences on the clubs, in particular amateurs, who will be the first impacted.
