Blow to the vertical sport. According to “L’Equipe”, the management of Altice Media announced this morning to its employees that Canal+ no longer shares the broadcast of the Premier League, the first division of English football, with RMC Sport. This absence will heavily deprive the sports package which had made these television rights its main soap opera. The group notably created SFR Sport in the summer of 2016 with the acquisition of English football.

A co-broadcasting agreement that goes badly with the English league
After the call for tenders for the current rights from 2019 to 2022, won by Canal+, the group led by Maxime Saada had agreed to share the broadcasting of the entire Premier League with RMC Sport, also dividing the 100 million euros. euros of the contract per season. In the summer of 2021, Canal+ managed to renew its contract with the English championship until 2025.
However, to validate a new co-broadcasting agreement, the English football league would have claimed, according to the sports daily, an increase in the amount of the new contract. In addition, she would not have accepted that all of the meetings could be co-broadcast between two groups.
What’s left on RMC Sport next season? From now on, the Altice Media sports package will broadcast two Champions League posters in co-broadcast with Canal+, the entire Europa League and Europa League Conference – excluding best poster -, the Portuguese football championship and boxing matches and of MMA. A reduced offer to say the least.
