Canal+ maintains exclusive broadcasting rights to French Top 14 rugby

Published on 

Canal+ Group has been granted the exclusive broadcasting rights to the national Top 14 rugby championship for the next five seasons (2014/2015 to 2018/2019) by the French National League (LNR). These rights cover all Top 14 matches, across all media and in all the territories where Canal+ Group is present.

As a result, Canal+ Group will be able to offer its subscribers at least three matches for any given championship day, on Canal+ and Canal+ Sport. All other matches will be broadcast on Rugby+. Canal+ will continue programming special weekend events. Canal+ Group will also broadcast exclusively the Top 14 playoffs and semi-finals. Subscribers will continue to benefit from the prestigious magazines devoted to Top 14 on each championship day and the LNR and Canal+ are also considering a free-to-air Rugby Magazine on Sunday evenings.

Finally, Canal+ will continue to market the Top 14 rights internationally, in the territories where the Group is not present, with the common aim to move the Top 14 a step further in its international exposure.
