Disgusted, Lizarazu reveals his truths!

Bixente Lizarazu does not hide it. The allocation of TV rights for the next two World Cups is hard to take. However, the former full-back does not give up.

The announcement had the effect of a bomb: TF1 will not broadcast the next World Cup, in 2026. Regular broadcaster of the event since the disappearance of the ORTF in 1975, the front page has in fact seen the rights TV of the next two World Cups will escape, M6 winning the bid for a record sum of 100 million euros.

The blow is tough for the first channel and in particular its sports department teams. Despondency reigned in the corridors of TF1 at the time of the announcement last month. And by the admission of Bixente Lizarazu, the channel’s star consultant for 15 years now, the pill is still not digested. The former full-back recognized it this Tuesday at Léa Salamé’s microphone on France Inter.

The battle is not over

« VDo you have the balls? », the public service journalist did not hesitate to ask. And the Basque wanted to be honest. “Well obviously…” he responded straight away. But the former Bavarian has obviously not given up. « But it is not finished. The battle is not over! Already, it’s a long time away… It’s not over! We’ll see ! », he continued.

Indeed, M6 should not broadcast the competition alone. While a pay channel will broadcast the entire Tournament, i.e. 104 matches, M6 could resell part of the 54 matches acquired for each of the two World Cups. Enough to give TF1 one last chance. « Our competitor did not wish to continue sharing, which is why we took our responsibilities to have for the first time the completeness, the exclusivity of the matches in the clear », nevertheless whispered Nicolas de Tavernost.
