French Top 14 Rugby Clubs Reportedly Want To Renegotiate TV Deal With Canal+
Published August 14, 2013
PUSHING FOR RENEGOTIATION: L'EQUIPE reported Top 14 club Presidents Alain Afflelou (Bayonne), Mourad Boudjellal (Toulon), Mohed Altrad (Montpellier), Jacky Lorenzetti (Racing Metro) and Laurent Marti (Bordeaux-Begles) "are pushing for a renegotiation." Marti said, "Two years ago, Canal+ underpaid for the rights. The current agreement is laughable...We must terminate and re-negotiate." Boudjellal said, "In 2011, their first offer of €20M was almost shameful, almost a way of taunting us." (L'EQUIPE, 8/12).
