FDJ®, A COMMITTED PARTNER OF THE LFP (Ligue de Football Professionnel)
Since 2009, our partnership with the LFP has been based on essential shared values: respect for the rules and equal opportunities / chance. In 2013, FDJ® and the LFP jointly constructed the bases of a new sports partnership model, combining the traditional marketing dimension with a strong focus on sports values, in two complementary sections: "Integrity" and "Society".
The purpose of the "Integrity" section is to remind people of specific rules (ban on sportspeople betting on certain matches, for instance) and to ensure that everyone involved in sport, and the general public, is aware of the risks of manipulating sports events through betting.
The partnership with FDJ® also includes a "Society" section, focusing on actions aimed at developing social responsibility in football.
