Radio må betale for rettigheder til fransk fodbold
Onsdag d. 6. februar 2002
An idea that was considered but rumour until now, today became reality.
The French radio-stations will have to pay for transmitting the matches of the first and second divisions of the French championship as well as the League Cup ties starting next season.
Who will be the next? Perhaps the reporters?
The National Football League decided to invite bids for retransmission of the matches of the first and second divisions as well as the League Cups ties. The bids will be entertained in 15 days and the retransmission rights will be proposed in 3 packages.
The first package will include the rights for the retransmission of the matches of the first and second division.
The second one - those for the League Cup ties. Finally, the third package will concern the local radio-stations and will include rights for the retransmission of their local side.
This decision was adopted after RMC-Info won the rights for the retransmission of the World Cup ties.
