France’s Canal+ renews Premier League rights to 2028

Canal+ has renewed its exclusive broadcast rights to the English Premier League in France until 2028, having previously held the rights until 2025. The company highlighted the Premier League as the “most competitive national championship in the world”. All 380 matches per season will be shown on Canal+ channels and myCanal.

Canal+ also retained rights in Switzerland (French language), Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Vietnam. Canal+ Group CEO Maxime Saada said this renewal delivers “great pleasure” for subscribers and praised his teams for making it happen.

The announcement comes as domestic Ligue 1 rights in France for 2024-2029 are currently up for auction, with Canal+ in conflict with Ligue 1 since Amazon became the main domestic broadcaster. Securing the Premier League strengthens Canal+’s sports content, with matches involving top clubs like Man City, Liverpool and Man United. Financial terms were not disclosed. Premier League Chief Media Officer Paul Molnar welcomed extending the “longstanding partnership” and Canal+’s “market-leading and innovative coverage”.
