As reported by L’Équipe, to help remedy Ligue 1’s ongoing financial crisis, the LFP are continuing to search for an investment company to inject funds into the league in exchange for a longer-term share of TV rights money.
LFP chairman Vincent Labrune is looking for an influx of €1.5bn to aid the league and its clubs. As it stands, four investment firms are in the running ahead of the March 9th deadline and a meeting this afternoon in which Labrune will detail the distribution of the funds to the clubs.
PSG should receive a huge 30% of the total of the new income directed towards French clubs, while European regulars, Lyon, Marseille, Lille, Monaco, Nice and Rennes are expected to share 40% of the total. The rest of the league, meanwhile, will have to be satisfied with splitting the remaining 30% between 13 of them.
Expanding Ligue 1’s international TV rights coverage is also being discussed.
