TV4 extends Ligue 1 rights deal

Swedish commercial and pay-television broadcaster TV4 has signed a one-year extension to its rights deal for Ligue 1, the top division of French football.

TV4 holds the rights to the current 2013-14 season and will now also broadcast Ligue 1’s 2014-15 campaign.

The TV4 Sport channel currently broadcasts Ligue 1 games, but the rights will revert to the new TV12 channel in the spring of 2014.

Sweden national team star Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a key player for reigning Ligue 1 champion Paris Saint-Germain.
