With the “Pass Ligue 1”, it will cost you €12.99/month or €99/year (or even €89 if the subscription is taken out before the end of August to have access to Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches) . A price to be added to the cost of the classic subscription to Prime Video.

The Canal+ channel will broadcast the remaining 20% ​​of matches. Again, you will have to pay € 20.99 per month with a one-year subscription.
