The French Federation has launched the call for tenders for the broadcasting rights of the Coupe de France from next season. After Eurosport and France TV, the battle will oppose two new broadcasters.
This season, Amazon has decided to share the broadcast of the Ligue 2 championship with the L’Equipe channel, the sports media broadcasting the multiplex every Saturday evening. But the two should find themselves in competition for a much more spectacular file since it concerns one of the events most appreciated by the general public, the Coupe de France. The contract with Eurosport and France Télévisions ending after the next final between Nice and Nantes, the FFF, organizer of the event, has therefore put the rights to this competition on sale, which brought in 22 million per season. And unlike the matches of the France team, which are having a hard time finding a broadcaster capable of paying the rights demanded by Noël Le Graët, things are already hustling around the Coupe de France and its very many matches. First channel to enter the dance, Prime Vidéo, which has demonstrated the seriousness of its work in Ligue 1 and will have no trouble ensuring the broadcasting of this competition.

But the Amazon channel will find the L’Equipe channel on its way, which has multiplied acquisitions in terms of TV rights, and will therefore make an offer to the French Football Federation, announces RMC. The radio affirms that if Prime Vidéo has really made the Coupe de France one of its objectives, and will therefore make the effort necessary to acquire the rights to it, the sports daily channel does not intend to serve of stooges and will try to win the bet, or at least part of the bet, the idea being perhaps that like Eurosport and France Télévisions, Prime Vidéo and the channel L’Equipe share the matches of the Coupe de France . We should know the winner or winners of this call for tenders after the final of the 2022 edition scheduled for May 7 at the Stade de France.
