The French television rights soap opera today added a new chapter to a novel that seems to have no end. According to information from Le Figaro, Canal Plus France has sued the LFP after the highest French football organization launch an incomplete offer of television rights.

The historic French audiovisual group estimates that the LFP has only offered 80% of the rights to Ligue 1, that is, those that Mediapro had returned in December after breaking the television rights agreement. Canal Plus also wants to recover the two games per day that it was broadcasting before returning its lot in January and that it had returned for estimating that its price was exorbitant (€ 332 million).

The Commercial Court of Paris will study the procedure between Canal Plus and the LFP and will give its verdict on 19 february later than. However, despite the fact that there is a dispute between both parties, the prestigious channel will be able to bid on the offer that has been launched by the highest instance of French football and whose deadline is February 1.
