The good thing about the TV rights series is that a new episode comes out regularly. The latest: very soon, the Ligue 1 poster so far scheduled for Saturday at 9 pm will be played at… 1 pm, still on Saturday. The National League unveiled this Wednesday morning in a press release: “At the request of the Canal + Group, the board of directors of the LFP has decided to adapt the programming of the days of Ligue 1 Uber Eats from the 26th day and until the end of the season.
Initially scheduled for Saturday at 9 p.m., the Saturday evening poster will now be brought forward to 1 p.m. from the 26th day of Ligue 1. This new schedule allows Ligue 1 to have the widest possible exposure on Antennas of the Canal + Group, the new exclusive broadcaster of the competition until the end of the season. “
A very special schedule
The 26th day in question will take place on the weekend of February 20-21. The players will have to adapt to this very specific schedule but they have been used to adapting to everything for a year.
For the new French football broadcaster, bringing the match forward to 1 p.m. rather than 5 p.m., a more normal schedule, makes it possible not to collide head-on with rugby and the Top 14 broadcast, especially on Saturday afternoon. Football also regained its rights on Sunday evening at 9 p.m. by taking over the space devoted to rugby and the Top 14 since the start of the season.
