“The real problem comes from Mediapro”

The shareholder and co-owner of SM Caen, Pierre-Antoine Capton, deplored Mediapro’s behavior in the conflict between it and the LFP.

Main broadcaster of the League 1 and Ligue 2, the Spanish group refused to pay its October deal on TV rights. A decision that endangers the finances of French professional clubs and the latter are starting to complain publicly. In an interview with Ouest-France, Pierre-Antoine Capton mentioned this issue.

Mediapro behind this “untenable” situation

“If the League is working on a new tender? First, there are three important partners, Canal +, Bein and Free who respect their commitments, explained the director of Stade Malherbe de Caen. The real problem comes from Mediapro. It is untenable when your main partner does not meet their payment deadlines. “

The Professional Football League should not have opted for Mediapro’s offer a few years ago and put Canal + on the sidelines according to the manager of the club of League 2. “When you have a long-standing partner like Canal +, which is one of the best sports broadcasters and producers in the world, you have to treat it differently,” says Pierre-Antoine Capton. A lot of people are realizing it now. “
