Coupe de France retains domestic broadcast partners

Public-service broadcaster France Télévisions and Eurosport France have renewed their deal for the domestic rights to the Coupe de France, the French Football Federation’s (FFF) premier knockout club competition.

According to French daily sports outlet L'Equipe, the two channels will pay a total of €22 million (US$25.7 million) a year to broadcast the matches of the oldest French soccer competition from 2018 to 2022, which is a rise of €6 million (US$7 million) a season from the previous broadcast cycle. 

Pay-TV channel Eurosport will broadcast the majority of fixtures, while the free-to-air France Télévisions will screen coverage of a selection of games, which is believed to include the final.  

Paris Saint-Germain became the first team since 1948 to win three Coupe de France titles in succession when they beat Angers 1-0 in the 2017 final, played at the home of French soccer, the Stade de France.
