The streaming giant will show 302 live Ligue 1 matches per season in the country
Amazon Prime Video will air 302 live Ligue 1 matches per season in France, beginning this August. Amazon reached an agreement with the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) for a three-year deal to show top French club football.
The package includes rights to the 10 top pick matches for the season, as well as 66 second and third picks, and a weekly highlights show featuring interviews and analysis.
Amazon also intends to broadcast 8 Ligue 2 matches per match week.
More details on pricing, production and talent will “follow in the coming weeks ahead of the start of the new season,” says Amazon.
Alex Green, managing director, Prime Video Sport Europe, said: “We are excited and privileged to begin our partnership with LFP to bring the best of French club football to Prime Video in France. Ligue 1 is the country’s most watched domestic football competition and we’re incredibly happy to bring every club and the most thrilling matches to Prime Video each week for the next three seasons.
“We have seen a great response to our recent coverage of Roland-Garros and will build on that to provide a world-class viewing experience as live football arrives on Prime Video in France.”
