FFF confirms Coupe de France rights deals

The French Football Federation (FFF) has extended rights deals with public-service broadcaster France Télévisions and sports broadcaster Eurosport for the Coupe de France club knockout tournament.

Both deals will run for four years and cover the 2018-19 to 2021-22 seasons.

Eurosport will also have certain international rights to the Coupe de France.

The agreements also cover the Coupe de France Féminine, the women’s version of the tournament, as well as the Coupe Gambardella men’s youth-level contest.

Earlier this week, daily newspaper L’Equipe reported that France Télévisions and the Eurosport France channel had agreed deals to retain rights to the Coupe de France.

The report said that the two broadcasters had agreed to pay a total of €22m ($25.8m) per year for the rights, but financial details of the deals have not been disclosed.
