Fuchs-Sports and FFF
Fuchs-Sports has agreed a five-season deal with the French Football Federation for digital rights to National 2 and National 3, the fourth and fifth tiers of the domestic game. The contract, covering the 2020-21 to 2024-25 seasons, will ensure all matches from the two leagues will be streamed live on a dedicated platform. The platform will be FFF-branded, while certain high-profile matches may also be broadcast on the Federation’s FFFTV service. Fuchs-Sports will equip the 64 stadia of National 2 and the 168 stadia of National 3 with a camera system allowing the capture of matches in an automated manner through use of artificial intelligence technology. In addition, the deal will allow clubs to enhance their own digital services, with free-to-access highlights and video of games to be made available.
