Broadcasters refuse to pay French championship over premature end to s


Paris Saint-Germain is set to be confirmed as Champion of France, after Ligue 1 forced to end the season prematurely because of risks relating to the coronavirus pandemic, according to foreign media.

The league will be decided on a point-per-game basis – the Parisians are 12 points clear and will be crowned the winners.

But the abrupt end to the season isn’t a positive thing. Broadcasters BeIN Sport and Canal + are reportedly set to refuse Ligue 1 payment of €243m because of the premature end to the season.

GFFN first shared this news on Twitter, and it outlines what other leagues can expect if they suffer the same fate.

The France Championship prematurely canceled on April 30. PSG officially won the 2019/2020 French championship.
