BT Sport is delighted to announce that we will continue to be the exclusive broadcaster of Ligue 1 football in the UK and Ireland until 2024. 

The new deal extends our eight-year partnership with the French top-flight, with several live matches to be shown each week and more than 200 top-flight clashes available per season.

It promises to be an intriguing 2021/22 campaign across the Channel as Paris Saint-Germain bid to reclaim the title Lille wrestled from them so impressively in May.

Christophe Galtier, who has since left for Rennes, guided surprise packages Lille to their first title in 10 seasons to end a run of three straight Ligue 1 successes for the Parisians.

France was the location of the best title race in Europe in 2021/22, with just five points separating the top three of Lille, PSG and AS Monaco at it's conclusion.

BT Sport's coverage will also include the Trophee des Champions - the annual clash between the Ligue 1 champions and the winners of the Coupe de France - as well as a range of supplementary programmes covering the top flight. 

The Ligue 1 promotion/relegation play-off clashes at the end of each season will also be available on BT Sport, as a team from Ligue 2 battles it out with a top division counterpart for a place in the big time.

Rachel Knight, Sports Rights Director, BT Sport said: “We want to provide customers with the best sport from across the world and to deepen our relationships with the best leagues and competitions, so we are delighted to secure continued coverage of Ligue 1 Uber Eats until 2024.

"European football has always been a key part of our line up, with exclusive coverage of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League alongside other domestic European football leagues.”

Mathieu Ficot, Deputy CEO, Ligue de Football Professionnel said: “Visible on BT Sport since the launch of the channel back in 2013, Ligue 1 Uber Eats enjoyed a large exposure and high-quality editorial treatment in the UK and Ireland.

"We are glad to expand this collaboration up to 2024 and look forward to offering another exciting football season to our British and Irish fans.”
