Canal+ and Bein Sport have agreed to pay a portion of the amount owed to the French football league.
The two broadcasters of the Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 championships are the main source of revenue for football in France. However, since the coronavirus outbreak led to the French league being suspended in early April, they have had no football to show.
French sports daily L’Equipe reports that Canal will pay €37 million of the €110 million it owes to the LFP. However, it is not know what proportion of the €42 million contracted to Bein will be paid.
The LFP is hoping for a resumption of matches in mid-June, subject to the approval of the French government, with training getting underway on May 11.
