The FFF has signed a historic partnership agreement for the international distribution of the D1 Arkema. The French women's championship matches will now be shown in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy from this 2020-2021 season.

This agreement, negotiated with Canal+, the exclusive broadcaster of D1 Arkema in France, was finalized for three seasons with Atalanta Media and aims to increase the visibility of one of the biggest international women's football leagues through multiple premium broadcasting platforms.

This brand-new partnership with Atalanta Media will provide D1 Arkema distribution agreements with ESPN, BT Sport and DAZN, signed for the live broadcast of one match per day. D1 Arkema's matches will also be available on Fanatiz and broadcast on Atafootball.com.

♦ ESPN+ will offer 19 matches in the United States on its platform during the 2020-2021 season.

♦ BT Sport will broadcast 19 matches in the UK and Ireland during the 2020-2021 season.

♦ DAZN will offer 19 matches for the 2020-2021 season via its sports streaming service in Italy and Germany.

"The distribution of the Arkema D1 in the United States, England, Germany and Italy indicates the growing appeal of the French women's football championship, represented notably by Lyon, European Champion for the seventh time. This three-year contract will allow us to broadcast one live match per day. This demonstrates the significant development and influence of D1 Arkema, the clubs and, more generally, French women's football".
