Paris - Published Wednesday, January 11, 2017 - 18:30 - #84627 "The groups beIN Sports and Canal+ will broadcast the promotion-relegation play-offs between Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 and between Ligue 2 and the National (French third division), under conditions to be determined," announced Didier QuillotDidier Quillot, the CEO of the LFPLFPLa Ligue de Football Professionnel, the French professional football league, during the Think Football! 2017 event hosted by News Tank Football at the l'Université Paris-Dauphine, on 10/01/2017.

Is the week of promotion-relegation play-offs considered part of the championships, of which the rights have already been sold? Or is this a new product that is subject to a new tender? This issue was not resolved when Didier Quillot said: "We will have a discussion with broadcasters about these new play-off games. And we will start with our existing broadcasters of the championships (beIN Sports and Canal+)," on 14/06/2016.
