TV rights: TF1 and M6 will share the matches of the Blues in the League of Nations and Euro 2024

This is the end of the suspense on the file of the TV rights of the French football team. Finally, the TF1 and M6 groups will share the broadcast of the matches of the Blues during the next League of Nations, as well as the broadcast of Euro-2024. “The TF1 group acquires from UEFA the rights to the matches of the French team for the next Nations League and Euro-2024, and extends its historic partnership with the Blues”, announces the press release from the group. In total, the group, which has five free-to-air channels including TF1, TMC and TFX, will broadcast three of the next six matches of the French team in the 2022 Nations League.

The agreement also provides for the shared distribution of “the 25 most beautiful posters” of Euro-2024. TF1 also specifies that he “will have privileged access to the France team, its players and its coach”. For its part, the M6 ​​group plans to broadcast unencrypted and in full “half of the matches of the French football team during the 2022-23 Nations League”. In the event of qualification of the Blues, winners of the 2020-21 edition of the League of Nations, the group plans to broadcast the semi-final of the competition, the final or the small final. It will also broadcast “half of the matches in the clear” of the next Euro which will take place from June 14 to July 14, 2024 in Germany.

Undisclosed amounts

Held until March by TF1 and M6, which are in the process of merging, the TV rights of the French football team have struggled to attract a limited market and little inclined to break the bank despite a crowned team at the Coupe du world 2018 and carried by headliners like Karim Benzema or Kylian Mbappé. The call for tenders for the matches of the 2022/2028 period – excluding World Cups and Euros, sold separately – had been unsuccessful this fall. The amounts spent for the acquisition of these rights have not been disclosed.
