OL-Monaco scheduled for Asian prime-time
After a successful first run with OGC Nice - PSG last season, the LFP has decided to once again schedule a big Ligue 1 Conforama match for prime-time viewing in Asia.
Ligue 1 Conforama's Week 18 will feature a slightly unusual broadcast schedule, with the clash between Olympique Lyonnais and AS Monaco programmed for 13:00 on Sunday, 16 December. In France, the match will be co-broadcast by Canal+ and beIN SPORTS.
The LFP would like to thank Canal+, beIN SPORTS, Olympique Lyonnais and AS Monaco for making this exceptional scheduling arrangement possible.
Didier Quillot, the LFP's Chief Executive:
"This initiative demonstrates the Chinese public's growing interest in Ligue 1 Conforama, a competition that is benefitting from unprecedented exposure in China due to agreements signed with the CCTV and PPTV groups. After Paris Saint-Germain and OGC Nice last season, this scheduling move constitutes another opportunity to offer Ligue 1 Conforama exceptional exposure via two clubs who are both playing in this season's UEFA Champions League and who thus have a very high international profile."
